The Sea Beasts Trailer
The Sea Beasts looks epic. Gigantic beasts, cute and cuddly beasts, Karl Urban as a pirate. Everything just seems right with this movie. Chris Williams is bringing his award-winning touch of adventure, heart, and humor by the barrel loads. The vibrant colors, powerful designs, and character personality clashes point are all marks of a film that the whole family will love. The world the film is set in looks to be turning upside down as this little stowaway looks to be developing a relationship with the beasts, while the other characters are bent on hunting them. The conflict of ideologies, pirates, and beasts, looks to be one that can’t be missed.
