Journey 20,000 years ago to the last Ice Age with the visceral adventure between man and wolf in ALPHA, available on Digital on December 17 and arriving on Blu-ray and DVD January 7 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Directed and co-written by Albert Hughes (The Book of Eli), ALPHA is a visually stunning tale centered on the relationship between man and man’s best friend, as they are forced to rely on each other to survive the harsh and unforgiving wilderness.

The impending winter season leads a fearful seventeen-year-old Keda (Kodi Smit-McPhee, Let Me In, X-Men: The Apocalypse) to accompany his father Tau ( Hakur Jóhannesson, “Game of Thrones”) and other members of the Cro-Magnon tribe to go on their annual bison hunt, where fate leaves the young boy critically injured and alone. Survival instincts kick in as Keda discovers his way back home while also finding a new friend during his barbaric feat. Including a diverse cast from all over the world, ALPHA also stars Leonor Varela (Blade II), Marcin Kowalcyk (“You are God” and “Hardkor Disco”), Jens Hultén (“M15 Rogue Nation”), Natassia Malthe (Elektra) and Spencer Bogaret (Vincent).

The Blu-ray release contains gripping never-before-seen content, including a Director’s cut, Alternate Opening and Endings as well as additional deleted scenes with Director Commentaries, and four behind-the-scenes featurettes. In “The Wolf Behind Alpha,” fans learn all about Chuck, the dog/wolf hybrid actor playing Alpha and learn what made him so popular on set. Audiences get an inside look into the training that Chuck and Kodi Smit-McPhee went through to create a real-life bond in “Boy & Wolf.” Hear the cast and crew discuss creating this never-before-seen film with insights into the creation of the stunning visuals with visual effects, new language, extensive research on artifacts, costumes and more in “Building the World.” In “A Hero’s Journey,” Kodi leads the conversation about what it was like playing such an emotional character and his character’s development through the film.
