Exclusive clip of Willem Dafoe in The Hunter

Setting traps in the wilderness, Bear Grylls-style

The Hunter stars Willem Dafoe as a mercenary tasked with hunting (as the title suggests) the mythical Tasmanian tiger, and we’ve got an exclusive clip that you can watch below.

Dafoe’s Martin is employed by a military biotech company to go to Tasmania and hunt the thought-to-be-extinct beast after a spate of recent spottings.

On his mission he befriends a local woman (Frances O’Connor) and her children, before he heads out into the bush in search of his prey after a briefing from a local guide (Sam Neill).

Dafoe trained in wilderness survival skills in preparation for the film, and the lessons he learned can be glimpsed in the clip below. Setting up traps, he proves himself to be a regular Bear Grylls.

Watch The Hunter clip now:


The Hunter opens in the UK on 6 July 2012.


Impressed by Dafoe’s survival skills? Reckon you could make it in the Tasmanian bush on your wits alone? Drop us a comment below…

      Last time I saw Defoe in the woods where Charlotte Gainsberg experimented some unusual methods in her grieving! If I was Defoe I wouldn’t want to go anywhere near the woods again!

      I prefer teasers all day long to proper trailers. But that was the most boring teaser I have ever seen. I still very much want to watch it though.
