Feeding Time! Check Out Images from Press Event for CRAWL at the LA Zoo with Real Alligators

Members of the entertainment media, myself included, were invited to the LA Zoo Tuesday evening for an exclusive event. It was an opportunity to interview Crawl producers Sam Raimi and Craig Flores about the film. Location: The Alligator exhibit. Time: Dinner!

Look for our exclusive interview coming soon, along with a review of Crawl (which arrives in theaters this Friday, July 12th). Check out an image gallery from Tuesday’s press event with the alligators, followed by the synopsis and trailer for Crawl below.

When a massive hurricane hits her Florida town, young Haley ignores the evacuation orders to search for her missing father, Dave. After finding him gravely injured in their family home, the two of them become trapped by the rapidly encroaching floodwaters. With the storm strengthening, Haley and Dave discover an even greater threat than the rising water level — a relentless attack from a pack of gigantic alligators.

Crawl is directed by Alexandre Aja from a screenplay penned by Michael Rasmussen and Shawn Rasmussen; the film stars Kaya Scodelario, Barry Pepper, and Ross Anderson.
