It may be Star Wars day, but a new shark is in town and he’s (or is it a she?) is threatening Serena van der Woodsen!! Gossip Girl references aside, the new trailer for The Shallows is pretty terrific.
As witnessed in Orphan, Unknown, Non-Stop and Run All Night, director Jaume Collet-Serra is a master when it comes to managing pace and building tension. Those skills will be put to the test with The Shallows, as a healthy chunk of the film (as the trailer suggests) centers on surf lover Nancy’s (Blake Lively) hate/hate relationship with a bloodthirsty shark. Stranded just 200 yards from the shore, Nancy is stranded on a rock and will undoubtedly attempt to break away from these dangerous waters.
The picture, which comes out June 29, and though the campy Sharknado franchise has its merits, it’s great to see The Shallows put a bit of bite back into our moviegoing lives. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!!
