Underwater Trailer

Kristen Stewart Takes On the Sea in First “Underwater” Trailer

A group of underwater researchers, submerged seven miles below the ocean’s surface, is adjusting to a planned month within the confines of their subterranean laboratory. When an earthquake sets off a chain of explosions that ultimately drowns their facility, they must scramble to survive the underwater and unknown inhabitants who have suddenly awakened.

Starring Kristen Stewart, T.J. Miller, Vincent Cassel, and John Gallagher Jr., the Willian Eubank directed Underwater has just gotten its first trailer, and boy does it look like a good time.

Though an Alien correlation is hard to ignore, you can’t not appreciate the visual dynamics presented here. Stewart is rocking a bleached buzzcut while Miller appears to be the source of comic relief within the structured confines of their oxygen suits. Though it will be interesting to see how they play off one another, I can already envision an eye roll and power struggle between the two.

The January 10 release date is a little worrisome, especially for a big-budget action flick, but here’s to hoping it proves a sleeper hit at the box office. Lord knows we need another sci-fi franchise to obsess over.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
