The theatrical release was delayed for an entire year.

Originally slated for September 2017 release, the film was moved to March 2018. The trailer was released in July 2017, more than an entire year before the actual film's release.

The breed of the dog is called a Czechoslovakian wolfdog.

"Alpha" could not bear a "no animals were harmed in the making of this film" tag, as four bison were slaughtered for use on a skinning/hide-removal scene.

"Alpha" is the director Albert Hughes's first feature without his brother, Allen Hughes.

The film was filmed near East Coulee, Alberta, Canada.

"Alpha" marks the director's first film that did not carry an R rating.
Filming Start Date:
22 Feb 2016
