  • Film Synopsis:

    Get closer to the iconic predator we love to fear – the Great White Shark. You’ll feel as though you’re inside a shark cage and witnessing Great Whites leaping out of the water. Shot on location in South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico and California, this film shows you the truth behind the mythic creature forever stigmatized by its portrayal in the world’s first blockbuster movie, “Jaws.”
