It’s kind of a bad clip, to be perfectly honest with you. I mean, if your movie is about killer sharks, and the first clip you put out there has Halle Berry showing off her shark knowledge to a bunch of dummies, you’re probably not reading your potential audience very well. I’m just sayin’.
Sara (Halle Berry) is a modern-day adventurer, deeply drawn to close encounters with the magnificent White Sharks who rule the primal predator shore of isolated Guadalupe Island. When her husband chooses ambition over his wife’s safety in a split-second encounter with the jaws of death, her marriage nearly breaks apart. A year later, a monsoon season voyage back to the same island becomes an escalating series of terrifying underwater confrontations and gut-wrenching emotional challenges. Testing her courage in the face of nature’s ultimate terror, she shows herself as tough as the men she is attracted to – and perhaps the bravest of all. Sara endures and changes the terms of the contest with mankind’s most feared underwater predator.
Also starring Olivier Martinez, Ralph Brown, Luke Tyler, Mark Elderkin, Thoko Ntshinga, Sizwe Msutu, and directed by John Stockwell.
