Blake Lively (The Age of Adaline) stars in The Shallows, the suspenseful shark thriller that taps into one of man’s most primitive fears – what’s lurking beneath the ocean’s surface?

The bikini-clad Lively is 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—woman vs. big, hungry shark–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 terrifying and 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 for Nancy’s terrifying ordeal, and “When Sharks Attack” offers a first person account from a shark attack survivor and an expert who explains what makes sharks attack.

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and written by Anthony Jaswinski (who penned the creepy 2011 horror entry Vanishing on 7th Street) , the PG-13-rated, action-filled flick bit off a healthy $55 million at the domestic box office this past summer.
