First Clip from T&A-Free Shark Night 3D Teases T&A
With a name like Shark Night 3D -- and a trailer that highlights bikini-clad co-eds and shark attacks -- you would be right to assume that the upcoming David R. Ellis-directed film would be packed to the gills with boobs and blood. As the director told Movieline at Comic-Con, however, it's not. "This movie is just a really smart, well-written movie with great character arcs, great twists, without having to have gratuitous nudity or language. Jaws was PG-13. The Birds. All those really great horror films." Fair points, David! Though you might want to tell the marketing department, since the first clip from Shark Night teases gratuitous nudity and some shark-related ultra-violence.
To be fair, that scene is clear homage to Chrissie's death in Jaws -- right down to the shark POV from beneath the sea. Though for the perspective Shark Night audience member -- one weaned on the blood-splattered T&A in Piranha 3D last summer -- will that reference go unnoticed? Also, how does a shark that big hang out in water that shallow? Just sayin'.
