Everything is fun and games till the sharks turn on you! <guffaw> I must admit I LOVED Deep Blue Sea when I saw it with friends at the Cinemadome and we laughed like hyenas! It was and still is the funniest horror movie I’ve ever seen so let me be the first to say … am ready to watch this with a bowl of hot buttered popcorn and a soda (no brand preference).
Has humanity learned nothing about making sharks super smart? What next giving them legs so they can terrorize us on land next (just kidding sharks rarely attack humans)? Well it looks like we haven’t because a new mad genius has decided to improve on the sea killing machines that haven’t changed all that much since the time of dinosaurs. Deep Blue Sea 2 will be released on April 17, 2018 on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP), DVD ($19.98 SRP) and Digital. The Blu-ray™ Combo Pack features the film in hi-definition, a standard definition DVD and a digital version of the film and will be rated R for gore, violence, language and general mayhem!
Deep Blue Sea 2, shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun (Danielle Savre) is invited to consult on a new, top secret project run by pharmaceutical billionaire Carl Durant (Michael Beach). She believes the project, performed at a remote, sea-based facility, focuses on extracting shark antibodies to help work toward cures for human diseases. However, Dr. Calhoun is shocked to learn that the company is using unpredictable bull sharks as its test subjects, and Durant has bio-engineered a shiver of highly intelligent, super-aggressive bull sharks. When science meddles with the time-tested process of nature and nurture, the outcome can be deadly. The film is directed by two-time Independent Spirit Award nominee Darin Scott (Menace II Society, To Sleep With Anger), and written by Hans Rodionoff (Lost Boys: The Tribe) and award-winning writing partners Jessica Scott & Eric Patterson (Another Cinderella Story). Tom Keniston (Sophia Grace & Rosie’s Royal Adventure) serves as executive producer, and Tom Siegrist (Santa’s Little Helper, The Exorcism of Molly Hartley) is the film’s producer.
Rounding out the cast are Danielle Savre (Heroes, Boogeyman 2) in the lead role of shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun; Rob Mayes (John Dies at the End, Mistresses) as Trent Slater, a highly decorated ex-Navy SEAL; and Michael Beach (Third Watch, The 100, upcoming Aquaman) as Carl Durant, a big pharma billionaire with questionable ethics. Rounding out the cast is Nathan Lynn (Outlander) as tech expert Aaron Ellroy, Kim Syster (Sterlopers) as neurobiologist Leslie Kim, and Jeremy Jess Boado (House Party: Tonight’s the Night) as clinical neurophysiologist Daniel Kim.
“Deep Blue Sea 2 is a true sequel, staying within the mythology of the original film, and taking the next step in the evolution of the sharks … and their human counterparts,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE, Vice President, TV Marketing, Family & Animation. “This time, there’s more perspective from the sharks, giving greater personality to the ‘villains’ in this film. It’s a thrill ride that will keep the audience guessing throughout.”
