After a rather dull teaser trailer, a rather dull poster has arrived for John Stockwell’s new shark thriller, Dark Tide. HALLE Berry’s face on the poster looks uncomfortable, and she would appear to want to be anywhere but in the picture, not a good sign. The poster itself is dreadful, looking like some tacky surf movie than a shark thriller. Yes, the poster has a fin in it, but God it’s just awful!
If you really care, you can catch the teaser trailer here
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.
