    They already did this with Jaws 3-D, didn’t they?

    Oh… wait, maybe they’ve thought up a plot this time.

    That ain’t the Louisiana Gulf. The water is WAY too clear! (No “BP” puns intended!) … it has always been darker waters. You don’t go snorkeling South ’cause that’s where the Mighty Miss. takes her dump! (It all comes from Chicago and heads to the gulf… with a lot of help from other cities down the river… ending in New Orleans… kinda.)
    After “Octo-shark”, whatever…eventually a movie called “King Kong Shark” will be made.
    And, unless they are in an Asian country, I will personally and publicly execute the director!
    Some things are still sacred.
    Jaws 3-D was enough of a farce.

    I’m guessing that the only character in the tailgate at the start of the trailer who survives is the dog.

    Looks like there will be a lot of chances to show cute girls in teeny bikinis. See you on Netflix.

    Yeah there’s on way I’m gonna pay money to see this. If I want to watch a Jaws rip-off, I’ll watch Bruno Mattei’s Jaws 5

    I think they may be trying to ride on the Piranhas 3D success?

    Seems like someone is raising the sharks, the live bait and shark proof cage are a dead give-away. That would make it more of a Lake Placid rip-off.

    What I love most about this trailer is the following:

    A) The first 75% of the trailer is just young folks having FUN! NAKED fun!
    B) That last shot was just a completely gratuitous shot of a booty jiggle with a heavy overlay of ominous music. This makes it an especially OMINOUS booty jiggle.

    The whole “attack on vacationers in the water” trope has really jumped the shark.

      HA! I see what you did there… and don’t think I didn’t…

    Henry Winkler should host a TV series called “Shark Jumping” and give Trump a run for his money.
    But, “Ominous Booty Jiggle” would draw more of an audience.
    (Remember that the first few minutes of “Jaws” was of a very naked girl get eaten alive! If this scene turned you on… I suggest you go “skinny-dipping” at night in shark infested SEA water!)
    Sharks ain’t too picky. Anyone remember “Orca”? It killed a giant white shark first thing in the movie.
    Bo Dereck was the jiggle and it did not end well. What was the “smart shark” movie that Samuel L. Jackson got his head bit off too early in the film?

      Deep Blue Sea.

      That wasn’t bad, actually. LL Cool J survived!

    I thought Speilberg, Corman, and the SYFY channel cornered the market on monster shark, mutant, gator, prehistoric reptile,pterodactyl, dinosaur, croc, dinocroc, snake, mammoth, sabertoothtiger, bigfoot, and etc movie.. They need retouchup those sharks, too CGI looking…..

    Hell, I’m still worried about that puppy they had on ship in “Apocalypse Now”!
    One minute Sam Bottoms and a young Lawrence Fishburne were playing with it… then the POOP hit the fan… and where is that puppy?!?
    (Maybe an OctoKongShark got it!)
