First, a quick recap... It's the shark thriller titled Dark Tide, in which Ms Berry stars as a diving instructor who is "drawn to close encounters with the White Sharks that rule the shores of the isolated island on which she lives." Olivier plays Halle’s husband in the movie, who “chooses ambition over his wife’s safety in a split second encounter with the jaws of death, leading to their marriage nearly falling apart.”

I was sorry to have missed this at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival (which all seems like a distant memory to me now, with another festival looming, which I leave for a week from today). It was one of the films I really wanted to check out. The trailer definitely promised something worthwhile.

I'm sure this needs no intro at this point, given how much we've talked about it and its director here on S&A.

And I still don't really care for it (I didn't care for the first official poster either). This poster (nor the first one) would not get me in a theater to see the film, so thank goodness for trailers (I loved the trailer).
