Sony Pictures has released a new The Shallows preview, featuring Blake Lively (The Age of Adaline, “Gossip Girl”) in the beginning of what turns out to be a nightmare for her character in this taut shark-themed thriller.
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, the film – dubbed Jaws for a new generation – centers on Nancy (Lively) who 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.
Collet-Serra, director of last year’s Run All Night and before that Non-Stop and Unknown, helmed The Shallows from a script by Anthony Jaswinski. The film arrives in theaters on June 24th.
