Under the bold new direction of Ben Ketai (“StartUp,” “Chosen”) comes the nail-biting adventure thriller RIVER WILD, available to own on Digital, Blu-ray™, and DVD now from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. A gripping tale of survival and distrust, the new film stars Leighton Meester (The Weekend Away, “Single Parents”), Taran Killam (“Saturday Night Live,” “Single Parents”), Adam Brody (Ready or Not, “StartUp”), and Olivia Swann (DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW). In honor of the film’s home release, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has released the opening scene of the film titled “Disaster Strikes on the River”. You can check out that opening scene below. ‘River Wild’ is directed & co-written by Ben Ketai (MALEVOLENT).
Joey (Leighton Meester) fears there could be trouble ahead after her brother Gray (Taran Killam) invites Trevor (Adam Brody), a childhood friend with a troubled past, on their whitewater rafting adventure with two tourists. Once they become stranded in raging rapids, the thrill-seeking trip quickly turns from exciting to utterly terrifying as the rafters are trapped in a desperate fight for their lives, all while someone seems intent on sabotage to ensure shocking secrets stay buried. To survive the wild river, Joey will have to face her fears, and everyone will have to develop killer instincts before they’re torn apart by deception aboard the raft, or by deadly waters wreaking havoc all around them.
