In between the excellent What We Do In The Shadows and the much-anticipated Thor: Ragnarok, director Taika Waititi made Hunt For The Wilderpeople, which has been acclaimed by all who have seen it. The new trailer for the movie is online to give you another taste of the movie, so take a look below.

Based on the 1995 novel Wild Pork And Watercress by Barry Crump, Hunt For The Wilderpeople sees young, rebellious Ricky Baker (Julian Dennison) going on the run after being threatened with a life in foster care. Struggling to make it alone in the wilderness, he's rescued by the curmudgeonly Hec (Sam Neill). But when the pair get stranded, social worker Paula (Rachel House) believes them to have absconded together, and the result is an eventful cross-country chase with Ricky and Hec pursued by Paula and her hapless cohort Andy (Oscar Kightley).

Having won awards at film festivals in several countries, Waititi's latest promises a lot of humour and just a dash of heart. With Rhys Darby and the director himself also in the cast, Hunt For The Wilderpeople will grace our shores on September 16.
