Let us not pretend the the tradition of the killer shark movie is a grand one. When goofball favorites like Deep Blue Sea, Shark Attack 3: Megalodon and Tintorera: Tiger Shark can occupy the same 'Top Five' list as Jaws, you've got yourself one tiny sub-genre. Relativity Media is making a new contribution this year with Shark Night 3-D, which finds a group of vacationers beset by freshwater sharks. (We had to double-check that those were real too. Turns out that they are. Damn. Now we're afraid to use our bathtubs.) And Crave's got your first look!
In the following picture (open it in a new window for a super-sized version), Sarah Paxton of Last House on the Left fame appears to be learning the hard way that when you buy a shark cage at the 99 Cent Store, you really do get what you pay for. Shark Night 3-D also co-stars Dustin Milligan (90210, Slither), Chris Carmack (The O.C.), Joel David Moore (Avatar) and Katharine McPhee (The House Bunny). The film is directed by the egregiously underrated genre director David R. Ellis (Final Destination 2, Snakes on a Plane), so we're genuiney looking forward to this one.
SHARK NIGHT 3-D hits theaters on September 2, 2011.
