Blake Lively is hunted by a shark in the trailer for The Shallows

03.18.2016

Nancy (Blake Lively) is spending some time surfing alone on a deserted beach. Hasn't she seen a horror movie before? When she is suddenly attacked by a great white shark , she clings to a nearby rock for safety. Despite the fact she is only a few hundred meters from the coast, getting there will prove to be the ultimate test of will. The shark circles in this trailer for THE SHALLOWS!

This trailer is simple and to the point, and I'll be damned if it doesn't work for me! I love this premise of survival and I think Blake Lively is an actress I can easily watch for a straight 90 minutes. I'm no beach-goer myself, but sharks in films have always been scary for me (thank you Mr. Spielberg). So, who here thinks she's NOT going to make it???

THE SHALLOWS opens on June 24, 2016.

Can't blame the shark I would eat her too! That being said I love shark and survival movies and this looks decent enough to enjoy.

Looks excellent

I wonder how much of the movie is her on the rock? How much will they spend with her preparing to leave and other such tasks.

I'm sure pissed-off Leighton Meester fans will be hoping Blake becomes a shark snack. Me, I'll likely be on the edge of my seat.

Naysayers are nabobs of negativism, and mean people suck. Both platitudes are true.

However, I am not optimistic for this movie. If you are, please enjoy the show. However, Blake Lively is wrong for this role. Generally, she does not commit to a role's emotional and physical requirements. Look at Savages and Green Lantern. Also, notice how the trailer does not emphasize Lively and her "great" acting. She has to scream and to lie there. Otherwise, the trailer emphasizes the ominous setting in

Generally, she does not commit to a role's emotional and physical requirements. Look at Savages and Green Lantern. Also, notice how the trailer does not emphasize Lively and her "great" acting. She has to scream and to lie there. Otherwise, the trailer emphasizes the ominous setting in which a lone human is surrounded by hostile sea that drowns-out her desperate voice. The Shallows is basically a version of Cujo in which a big animal traps and threatens a woman (and her kid in the dog movie) who is oh-so-close to safety. Except The Shallows is on-the-sea (that's deep). Is Blake Lively going to give us a performance such as Dee Wallace did? The trailer does not indicate that she does. We have only our suspicions.

Also, the music plays a prominent role in this advertisement, and that music is overly derivative of Jaws. The film's people would like to trick us into thinking that we are getting Jaws. Apparently, they have to. By contrast, Deep Blue Sea used "Amazing Grace" in its trailer, for it was a shark movie that did not need to be Jaws. And, Swamp Shark was SyFy movie that used down-home guitar pickin' for its sountrack, because it also did not need the musical cues from Jaws.

The sad thing is if this movie is done well, it will be completely unwatchable for me.

Not because I don't like Blake Lively, but rather because I am a gigantic pussy when it comes to my fear of sharks.

I already see a HISHE in this trailer, it's about a 30 second movie. The shark tail slaps her off the rock, game over...

So did Ryan Reynolds just roll over one day and say

"Hey I did a movie where it was nothing but me trapped in a thing, you should do that trapped on a thing movie."

I certainly appreciate that her trapped on a thing movie is also a "trapped on a thing in a bikini" movie.

Now if she can fix that whole "couldn't act her way out of a wet paper bag" thing...
