Watch a Shark Attack Blake Lively in a Clip from ‘The Shallows’

A tense new clip has dropped from The Shallows, the upcoming thriller that sees Blake Lively attempting to survive a shark that has it out for her.

Lively plays Nancy, a girl who find herself stranded 200 yards from the shore. The only thing between her and safety: a great white shark. Good luck.

Director Jaume Collet-Serra showed off slick direction in Orphan and Liam Neeson vehicles Unknown, Non-Stop and Run All Night, so we’ve got our fingers crossed for a well-produced, suspenseful little survival pic here. At least from the clip below, we at least know that we’re in for a convincing first attack.

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

Synopsis for The Shallows:

In the taut thriller The Shallows, when Nancy (Blake Lively) is surfing on a secluded beach, 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.
