Watch: Michael Douglas Hunts Jeremy Irvine In The Desert In Trailer For 'Beyond The Reach'

Every year at the Toronto International Film Festival, there are a handful of films out of the hundreds selected to screen that just completely pass us by. Sometimes those pictures turn out to be hidden gems, while others are overlooked for a reason. However, in the case of “Beyond The Reach” (originally titled “The Reach“), maybe it didn’t even need to screen at TIFF at all. It’s every bit a b-movie thriller, not a prestige pic, but that doesn’t matter as it looks like a decent slice of sun-baked fun.

Michael Douglas and Jeremy Irvine star in the movie, directed by Jean-Baptiste Léonetti (“Carré blanc“), that centers on a massively successful businessman and expert tracker who goes on a hunting trip out in the Mojave Desert with a young guide. However, when the millionaire accidentally kills someone, the kid becomes his next target. A simple premise, and maybe not the brainiest the flick, but it’s one that looks like it could be a decent enough piece of popcorn, with Douglas certainly enjoying chewing up the scenery as the big bad.

“Beyond The Reach” opens in cinemas and on VOD on April 17th.
