The decision to catch just one last wave almost costs Nancy (Blake Lively) her life in the first of two clips from Sony's new thriller The Shallows, hitting theaters June 29. This clip shows Nancy interacting with two fellow surfers who plan on calling it a day, when Nancy reveals she wants to stay out for just one more run. Little does she know that a deadly shark is lurking in these seemingly-peaceful waters.
The second clip , which surfaced on YouTube, features Nancy showing off her surfing skills for these strangers, before this killer shark is seen stalking its prey. With just a few weeks left until The Shallows hits theaters on June 29, it isn't known if another trailer will be released from this upcoming thriller. Blake Lively leads a minimalist cast that also includes Oscar Jaenada, Sedona Legge and Brett Cullen.
This taut thrill-ride centers on Nancy (Blake Lively), who is surfing on a secluded beach, when she finds herself on the feeding ground of a great white shark. Though she is stranded only 200 yards from shore, survival proves to be the ultimate test of wills, requiring all of Nancy's ingenuity, resourcefulness, and fortitude. We learned in an earlier trailer that Nancy has come to this beach after her mother passed away, but there isn't much else we know about the story. This project was formerly known as In the Deep, which previously had Louis Leterrier set to direct.
Sony Pictures has set a June 29 release date, which falls on the Wednesday before The BFG, The Purge: Election Year and The Legend of Tarzan are set to hit theaters. Jaume Collet-Serra directs The Shallows. The filmmaker was first introduced to audiences with his 2005 remake House of Wax, but he has become better known for his collaborations with action icon Liam Neeson. They first worked together on 2011's Unknown, before reuniting on Non-Stop and last year's Run All Night. They will next team-up for The Commuter, which arrives in 2017.
Anthony Jaswinski wrote The Shallows, a script that wound up on the coveted Black List. He also wrote the 2010 thriller Vanishing on 7th Street, Kristy and his directorial debut Killing Time. Weimaraner Republic Pictures partners Lynn Harris and Matti Leshem are producing. Take a look at these new clips from The Shallows, and stay tuned for more as we get closer to the June 29 release date.
