Great New ‘The Shallows’ Trailer Teases Blake Lively’s Battle with a Shark


A great new trailer has been released for The Shallows, giving us a tense, intriguing look at the upcoming shark thriller.

Blake Lively stars as Nancy, a surfer who decides to check out the waves located near a secluded beach. When she becomes the target of a blood-thirsty great white shark, she finds herself stranded a mere 200 yards from shore.

It’s a simple concept, and one that could prove to be effective if the tension is juiced for all it’s worth. This new trailer does a nice job of setting up the straightforward plot, placing a focus on the inner-strength Nancy will have to muster if she is to survive this aquatic killer, and all without giving much away. We’re digging what we’ve seen so far. Fingers crossed.

The Shallows will open in the U.S. on June 29 and arrives in Australia on August 18.
