Looks cinematic. Not like some low budget shark movie.

If it's good, I could see Don't Breathe numbers.

Looks cool and it didn’t even need to use the iconic helicopter scene.

Wow, not one money shot. Bit of a shitty trailer, tbh. Looks lame.

I can see this doing well in China though. They like crap.

Eh I'll see it. Hopefully, it's at least mindless dumb fun like Deep Blue Sea or Piranha 3D. The shark looks good and I liking some of the underwater shots, but I'm still not sure about Statham being the lead in this.

Not even a single scary scene in the trailer. I think the beach scenes were done SO much better in Piranha movie.

I wonder what market they are making this for lol.

Apart from the one scene at the start where the girl is face to face with the shark (through the glass), its very average.

Agreed. Now that was an awesome flick.

I think the shark looks pretty bad.

I also don't like those aerial visuals of shark, yes those add value in a tense scene but in a trailer more than once feels like an overkill, plus they already mentioned that this is a giant-sized shark in first few seconds of the trailer. Not only does it look bad visually but tonally its a poor trailer.

Looks like your typical Hollywood monster disaster blockbuster film, not caring too much for it now, but I'll probably watch it. Does not look as fun as Rampage.

He just about got one line in the trailer. There was a moment when I thought he wouldn't speak at all!

Yes this is a much better trailer. They should have used it for domestic purposes as well.

Sometimes a movie's trailer can be trash but the posters are great. Not the case here.

I like the first poster, but that second one is pretty awful. It honestly looks like a cover for one of those cheap, crappy DTV shark movies. I also think the international trailer is better aswell.

Those posters are really bad, they are unable to find the right hook to sell this movie.
