Harking back to classic films like Jaws and survival stories like 127 HrsThe Shallows is a new psychological thriller staring Blake Lively, and one really big shark. The film follows Nancy (Lively) who, while surfing on a secluded beach, finds herself on the feeding ground of a great white shark. Though she is stranded only 200 yards from shore, survival proves to be the ultimate test of wills, requiring all of Nancy’s ingenuity, resourcefulness and fortitude.

The Shallows is looking to bring back the fear, thrills, and spectacle of EPIC big-creature-features and to celebrate the release, we’re hosting some exclusive screenings with Sony Movies SA and Ster-Kinekor cinemas in Johannesburg (Sandton City), Cape Town (Cavendish Square), and Durban (Gateway shopping centre) on Thursday, 25 August (next week) at 20:00.

Attendees will be given the chance to be one of the first in South Africa to see the film ahead of its release, and enjoy a complimentary beverage and popcorn too. Winning!
