Shark movies are a weakness of our's. Actually, it's an even broader temptation than that. We're a sucker for any movie in which measly humans do their best to not end up as morsels for something with pointy teeth. The new film Dark Tide certainly fits that bill, though it's not just the potential feeding frenzy that has our interest piqued.The film also conveniently combines our weakness for maritime chomping with our weakness for Halle Berry in a bikini.
Directed by John Stockwell (Blue Crush, Into the Blue), the official synopsis of Dark Tide is:
Kate (Halle Berry) is a shark expert whose business has been failing since a shark attack killed a fellow diver under her command. Once dubbed "the shark whisperer," Kate is haunted by the memory of the attack and unable to get back into the water. With bills piling up and the bank about to foreclose on Kate's boat, Kate's ex-boyfriend Jeff (Olivier Martinez) presents her with a lucrative opportunity: lead a thrill-seeking millionaire businessman on a dangerous shark dive…outside the cage. Battling her self-doubts and fear, Kate accepts the proposal -- and sets a course for the world's deadliest feeding ground: Shark Alley.
It just so happens that we have an exclusive clip from the film that shows what Berry finds once she gets out to Shark Alley. Spoiler alert: It's a shark. And though we haven't seen the film, our extensive experience with shark movies leads us to the highly scientific conclusion that the toothy beast seen below probably doesn't appreciate her shining a flashlight in its face.
Pretty tense, no? Dark Tide is conveniently on VOD starting today, March 8th, so all you have to do is head to your On Demand platform of choice to find out how that clip ends. Or, if you're extra patient and prefer your sharks extra large, Dark Tide will hit select theaters on March 30th.
