Bait 3D poster - AustraliaJust when you thought it was safe to go shopping. Paramount has released the brand new trailer for the latest shark attack film Bait 3D, better known as the “sharks in the supermarket” film, starring Xavier Samuel and Julian McMahon.

Bait was filmed in 3D on the Gold Coast and is set to release in Australia in September. The producers also recently announced that they have secured international distribution for “BAIT” in over 40 markets around the world including: Canada, Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela etc.), ASIA (China, India, Japan, Singapore etc.), Europe (France, Germany, UK, Spain etc.), Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland etc.) and Africa (South Africa).

Directed by Kimble Rendall (Cut, The Jesters / second unit Director The Matrix Reloaded, I, Robot, Ghost Rider), and written by Australian Director, Russell Mulcahy (Highlander, Ricochet), Bait begins in a sleepy beach community, where shoppers at an underground supermarket are terrorized by a crazed bandit when the unimaginable occurs: A monstrous freak tsunami swallows the town. Now trapped, with rushing water threatening to entomb them in a watery grave the survivors discover they are not alone. The tsunami has brought unwanted visitors from the depths. Not only must they overcome the threat of drowning and the predator within their midst, but a threat far more deadly and far more bloodthirsty – hungry great white sharks.

Bait 3D is released in Australia on 6 September 2012 from Paramount.
