‘Bait 3D’ Sales Trailer Plays Like a Theme Park Stunt Show!

I needed a few minutes to regain my composure after watching the sales trailer for Kimble Rendall’s Bait 3D, yes, that other 3-D shark movie.

The footage is absolutely hilarious as nearly every single aspect looks staged – it’s like watching a stunt show at Universal Studios or something (kind of reminds me of their ongoing “Waterworld” show). The shark popping out of the water looks like the cheap Jaws effect on the studio tour, the way the set is dressed makes it look terribly staged, and the shotgun cock/blast at the end reminds me of when the tour boat captain on Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” shoots at a wild Hippopotamus. Even some of the footage reminds me of when they’d ask audience members to participate in the “filming” of their movie, which they’d play it back at the end of the show!

EPIC FAIL.

Check it out inside and tell me what you think. Am I being too brash?
Xavier Samuel, Julian McMahon, Sharni Vinson, Phoebe Tonkin, Martin Sacks, Alice Parkinson, Alexander Russell, Qi Yuwu, Adrian Pang, Lincoln Lewis, Damien Garve all star.

In a sleepy coastal resort community, shoppers at an underground supermarket find themselves terrorized by a crazed bandit when the unimaginable occurs… A monstrous freak tsunami swallows the town. Now trapped inside a flooded supermarket with an armed maniac and rushing water threatening to entomb them all in a watery grave, the imprisoned band of survivors discover they’re not alone. The tsunami has brought some unwanted visitors from the depths. As the waters rise they must overcome not only the threat of drowning, but another threat, just as deadly and far more bloodthirsty… Packs of hungry tiger sharks.

My apologies as we were asked to remove the trailer. Your loss. Truly, it is…
