By James Whittington, Saturday 12th November 2016 Blake Lively (Gossip Girl) stars in The Shallows, the suspenseful thriller that taps into one of man's most primitive fears - what's lurking beneath the ocean's surface? Lively stars as Nancy, a surfer attacked by a great white shark a mere 200 yards from the shore of a secluded Mexican beach. As she struggles to survive, Nancy faces the ultimate contest of wills. It's not just another day at the beach when The Shallows arrives on digital, and Blu-ray, DVD and next-generation 4K Ultra HD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on December 5th.
Nancy (Lively) is surfing on a secluded beach, but 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 Blu-ray, DVD, digital and 4K Ultra HD releases come loaded with bonus material, including deleted scenes and four behind-the-scenes featurettes. Join the director, crew and Blake Lively as they discuss the challenges and rewards of shooting in the waters off Lord Howe Island located in the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand in "Shooting in The Shallows", while "How to Build a Shark" delves into the extraordinary visual effects that make The Shallows a visceral experience. "Finding The Perfect Beach: Lord Howe Island" allows viewers to travel with the filmmakers for a behind-the-scenes look at the beautiful, pristine location that provides the backdrop to Nancy's terrifying ordeal, and "When Sharks Attack" offers a harrowing first person account from a shark attack survivor and an expert who explains what makes sharks attack.
