Thursday, December 9, 2021 | News


A great white shark movie by any other name is still a great white shark movie, and we’ve got the trailer and poster for the latest one.

Saban Films releases THE REQUIN to select theaters, VOD and digital platforms January 28. Written and directed by Le-Van Kiet, it also stars James Tupper, and the synopsis is as follows: “There’s terror in paradise when Jaelyn [Silverstone] and Kyle [Tupper] arrive at a remote seaside villa in Vietnam for a romantic getaway. A torrential storm descends, reducing the villa to little more than a raft and sweeping the young couple out to sea. Suddenly, another danger appears: a school of great white sharks. With her injured husband watching helplessly, Jaelyn must battle the deadly predators alone in this tense thriller that rides an unrelenting wave of fear.”
