Terrifying Trailer For Deep Blue Sea 2 Drops


A terrifying trailer for Deep Blue Sea 2 has dropped, nineteen years after the first film was released.

The film follows 1999’s hit about super-intelligent killer sharks, which had the likes of Samuel L. Jackson in the cast.

And it seems the sharks are back, as ‘clever’ as ever.

Here’s the trailer:

Thomas Jane (The Punisher), LL Cool J, and Saffron Burrows (The Bank Job) as well as L. Jackson all starred in the original film – but none of them are slated to appear in Deep Blue Sea 2.

In fact, Deep Blue Sea 2 is not brought to us by Warner Bros, but by SYFY.

They’re the people that brought you Sharknado, Sharknado 2, and Sharknado: Heart of Sharkness. What?

In the ‘budget’ sequel, 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).

When science meddles with the time-tested process of nature and nurture, the outcome can be deadly.

Last year, there were talks of a sequel – with Creative Executive for Warner Bros, Matt Bierman, saying:

We are a true sequel. We wanted to keep to the spirit of Deep Blue Sea and why people love it. The research that was used on the sharks in Deep Blue Sea 2 comes from the mythology and storyline of the first movie.

We have given the lead shark a personality and hope the fans will embrace that as it really helps the storytelling and the narrative in a way that first one didn’t.

Deep Blue Sea 2 has a slightly slower build but once the rubber band snaps things go boom really quickly!

According to ComicBook, in 2009, Warner Bros. attempted to create a sequel, and had asked Jack Perez to create the concept.

Speaking of the scrapped idea, Perez said:

The script is about this scientific research ship that is seized by Somali pirates, and a team of Navy SEALs have to go in and take them out.

The whole ship is basically a gigantic floating laboratory, with a maze of tunnels that the sharks can travel through that open up into tanks.

My thinking was that this was Sgt. Rock vs. sharks, so I developed this platoon kind of based on my favorite Sgt. Rock characters. To a certain degree, it was similar to what they did in Predator; there were definitely echoes of that sort of motley group.

Deep Blue Sea 2 does not currently have a release date, but it is expected to be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital this year.
