THE SHALLOWS Trailer and Poster: It's Blake Lively Against a Shark
Here's the first teaser trailer and poster for The Shallows, a film that was originally called In The Deep. The basic premise is pretty simple: it's girl vs. shark.
In the taut thriller The Shallows, Nancy (Blake Lively) is surfing alone on a secluded beach when she is attacked by a great white shark and stranded just a short distance from shore. Though she is only 200 yards from her survival, getting there proves the ultimate contest of wills. It's Jaws for a new generation.
Lively earned the starring role after a highly-competitive casting process, and Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra is behind the camera on this one. Sony is positioning it as a new Jaws, but they'll have to forgive me if I say it's going to take a hell of a lot more than this to convince me that The Shallows is worthy to stand next to one of the greatest films ever made.
We'll find out this summer, when The Shallows swims into theaters on June 24th.
