I love shark movies so I'll definitely check it out. Plus 2 hours of Blake Lively in bikini bottoms is a nice bonus!

This looks intriguing... I'd definitely rent at a minimum.

Eh. Maybe if it was part of an anthology but a whole movie of her waiting while the tide rises?

Bring on Sharknado 4.

I can think of few things scarier than being in water with hungry sharks. So I will definitely see this!

Damn, that was a solid trailer. I'm looking forward to seeing this quite a bit. Looks intense.

That trailer seemed to give an awful lot away but I still plan on checking it out.

If nothing else, it'll be a good rental for a rainy day.

Hmmm..the shark and sharkbite on her leg don't match.

Finally saw the trailer - shit, that was pretty awesome. Clever use of minimal anything. The shark will be the most expensive prop/effect of the film. I am intrigued.

Rated PG-13

I'll try not to get discouraged...I guess this movie is supposed to be more about the suspense anyway.

The greatest shark film of all-time is rated PG. I think we'll be OK on this one.

Though to be fair, if the rating had existed it probably would have been PG-13.

Sharkansas Women's Prison Massacre is PG?

Out this weekend.

Reviews seem to be pretty positive. Currently 92% on RT: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_shallows/

"Unequivocally the best shark movie since Jaws."

This seems like a mix of 127 Hours and Jaws, so I'm in.

I enjoyed the test screening they did awhile back, looking forward to seeing the finished shark effects.

Think I'll check this out this weekend. I'm more interested in this than I am in Independence Day: Resurgence.
