‘Open Water 3 Cage Dive’ Clip: News Report Sets Up Natural Disaster

I’m a huge fan of Chris Kentis’ 2003 micro-indie Hitchcockian thriller Open Water, which is based on the true story of two scuba divers who are accidentally stranded in shark infested waters after their tour boat has left.

In 2006, Hans Horn’s deep sea horror was rebranded as Open Water 2: Adrift. Now, distributors are rebranding Cage Dive as the third film in the ongoing home video franchise.

Lionsgate has set an August 11, 2017, release (that’s today!) for Gerald Rascionato’s first-person shark movie Open Water 3 Cage Dive. In addition to the previously released trailer, we have a new clip in which a news reporter sets up the conflict: a tidal wave has left cage divers stranded in the ocean.

Cage Dive follows three American tourists making an audition tape of a shark cage dive for a reality TV show. A catastrophic turn of events leaves them stranded in the waters of South Australia surrounded by hungry great white sharks.

    The podcast We Hate Movies had an interesting idea for an Open Water sequel. The gist of it was mafia goes to dispose of a body in the middle of the ocean then bada bing something happens with the boat and you got some gangsters adrift in open waters with a dead body.
    Anyway that sounds more creative than another shark cage premise.

      Bart, that’s not a bad idea but the only glitch with it is that there would be NO ONE to root for/care about. it would be hard if not impossible to root for some vile, scummy mafia guys. i guess we could root for the sharks! LOL

        It was from a comedy podcast that was making fun of Jaws: The Revenge what do you want?

    I liked ‘Open Water’ and have yet to watch part 2. I’ll get to this eventually.

    The first Open Water creeped me out. The idea of being stranded in the middle of ocean is terrifying. Part 2 was meh but this one looks more inline with the first one.
