As said before, The Shallows takes a little bit of Jaws, reduces the central cast to one very blonde surfer girl, and maroons her on a bit of reef only yards away from safety. It’s an impressively simple premise for a thriller and, more often than not, simple premises yield solid results when it comes to the genre.
In this second trailer, we’ve got a bit more background and about 75 percent more shark. Lively appears to be out on the hunt for the perfect beach with the perfect waves, and comes across a place called Paradise. As it turns out, Paradise offers more than just surf, sun, and sand—there’s a man-eater in the water. (You can see it do a little bit of man eating in the trailer.)
Here, we not only see the setup for horror veteran Jaume Collet-Serra’s seventh film, but Lively plotting her escape and, ultimately, fighting back. Will she triumph over the shark or become a very good-looking entree? We’ll all find out when The Shallows hits theaters June 24. Watch the trailer, below.
