EXCLUSIVE: Shark Week is looming, and those who are hungry for Discovery’s annual tribute to the oceanic predators will be served up something new this year. Capsized: Blood in the Water, starring Josh Duhamel, is the first original feature-length scripted Shark Week movie. Watch the chilling first teaser above.
Based on the true story of an October 1982 shark encounter, Blood in the Water follows the unlucky folks aboard a yacht bound for Florida that capsizes during an unexpected storm. Its crew is left to drift for days in the chilling waters of the Atlantic, where they become prey to a group of tiger sharks. With the hope of rescue dwindling, the crew must do everything in their power to survive as the sharks continue to hunt them.
Tyler Blackburn, Rebekah Graf, Beau Garrett and Josh Close also are on the menu — er, also star in the movie produced by Stephen David Entertainment.
In the clip, our wish-they-were-castaways are left clinging to a lifeboat as their lower appendages dangle tantalizingly below the surface. And at least one of them is cut — drawing, well, you know who.
Here are a few more photos from Blood in the Water, which Discovery airs at 9 p.m. Wednesday, July 31. Happy summer boating, friends.
