Primal, a day-and-date release from Lionsgate, features the continually busy Nicolas Cage as a hunter who bags a rare white jaguar only to learn that the ship transporting him home is also extraditing a dangerous political assassin (Michael Durand). Both cat and killer break loose, resulting in a wild game of hide-and-seek that quickly turns deadly. Famke Janssen co-stars in this thriller written by Nick Powell and directed by Richard Leder.
