Blake Lively battles a great white shark in The Shallows

I love shark movies. And by shark movies, I mean flicks like Jaws or even Deep Blue Sea. I don't mean all The Asylum or other SyFy shark movies, which have cheapened the scare factor of a very real predator. I'm talking seriously made, seriously thrilling shark movies.

Looks like the new Sony release The Shallows is attempting to take a serious stab at making sharks threatening again, an they've picked a serious star and and a high concept to do it.

The star is Blake Lively, and the premise is as follows: a young woman is stranded alone on a buoy with a great white shark circling the waters between her and land. Simple, but the idea has tons of potential, which I hope director Jaume Collet-Serra (Non-Stop, Unknown) milks.

Now watch the trailer:

The Shallows opens June 24.
