The movie, directed by House of Wax‘s Jaume Collet-Serra, follows Nancy (Lively), a surfer who heads to a secluded beach to catch some waves but instead ends up getting in a dangerous standoff with a vicious shark. Turns out the man who told her that the name of the beach was “Paradise” was wrong. Very, very wrong.

“It’s really a story of us all trying to survive on this planet,” Lively previously told EW. “It sounds lofty, but when you boil it down, that’s what it is. What I really liked about this is that it wasn’t just Bikini vs. Monster… But you still get a little bikini and you still get a little monster!”
Watch the trailer above, where that “little monster” makes a snack of two of Nancy’s fellow surfers, and see The Shallows when it arrives in theaters June 29.
