Humans are both the predators and prey in the new film from the director of WILDERNESS, SOLOMON KANE and SILENT HILL: REVELATION.

Lionsgate has announced that ENDANGERED SPECIES will arrive in select theaters, on Apple TV and other platforms May 28, with Blu-ray and DVD editions out on June 1. It was directed by M.J. Bassett from a script he wrote with Isabel Bassett, who also co-stars alongside Rebecca Romijn, Philip Winchester, Jerry O’Connell, Michael Johnston and Chris Fisher. The synopsis: “Jack Halsey [Winchester] takes his wife [Romijn], their adult kids, and a friend for a dream vacation in Kenya. But as they venture off alone into a wilderness park, their safari van is flipped over by an angry rhino, leaving them injured and desperate. Then, as two of them go in search of rescue, a bloody, vicious encounter with a leopard and a clan of hyenas incites a desperate fight for survival.”
