After a dreadful teaser trailer and a sleep inducing, pathetic poster which looks more like a kids surf film than a vicious shark thriller, the full length trailer for director John Stockwell’s Dark Tide has arrived! Finally I am impressed, finally I might actually be a little excited. I must admit I like the look of the sharks, there doesn’t seem to be any CGI which is a good thing, so I really hope that after all the poor promotional stuff up until now, Dark Tide just might become something to look forward to. I guess only time will tell. You can check out the new, and rather excellent trailer at the bottom of this post.

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.
