They’re not giving much away in the official trailer for The Shallows, but one thing is for sure: Blake Lively is in trouble.
The official synopsis: When Nancy (Lively) is attacked by a great white shark while surfing alone, she is stranded just a short distance from shore. Though she is only 200 yards from her survival, getting there proves the ultimate contest of wills.
Filmed in Australia, Jaume Collet-Serra (Orphan) has created what looks like an updated version of Jaws…and let me tell you, that is one big ass shark in the trailer. I’m not afraid of sharks, but something that size that’s lurking in shallow water may lead me to rethink my position.
I’m personally looking forward to seeing how Blake Lively does in a horror film since I have a girl crush on her. There’s only two other people in the movie, so she’ll really have to hold her own. I have faith!
Though the film just recently wrapped filming, Sony is still aiming for a June 24th, 2016 release date. Watch The Shallows trailer now.
