This afternoon Relativity has posted the first trailer for Shark Night 3D, the David R. Ellis (Snakes on a Plane, Final Destination 2, The Final Destination) directed thriller swimming into theaters September 2. The footage features a little homage to Jaws, although I don’t like how serious it takes itself. We’ll see how that plays out this summer…
“Arriving by boat at her family’s Louisiana lake island cabin, Sara (Sara Paxton) and her friends quickly strip down to their swimsuits for a weekend of fun in the sun. But when star football player Malik (Sinqua Walls) stumbles from the salt-water lake with his arm torn off, the party mood quickly evaporates. Assuming the injury was caused by a freak wake-boarding accident, the group realizes they have to get Malik to a hospital on the other side of the lake, and fast.
But as they set out in a tiny speedboat, the college friends discover the lake has been stocked with hundreds of massive, flesh-eating sharks! As they face one grisly death after another, Sara and the others struggle desperately to fend off the sharks, get help and stay alive long enough to reach the safety of dry land.”
Chris Carmack, Alyssa Diaz, Joel David Moore, Dustin Milligan and Katharine McPhee also star.
