Underwater Trailer

"We drilled into the bottom of the ocean, and we don't know what came out." Fox has launched the first official trailer for an action-thriller titled Underwater, which is indeed set underwater. It's about a crew of underwater researchers who must scramble to safety after an earthquake devastates their big subterranean laboratory. Sounds a bit like The Abyss, but without the military men. Underwater is the next film from the director of the impressive indie sci-fi The Signal, named William Eubank, which we were big fans of back in 2014. His new film stars Kristen Stewart, T.J. Miller, Vincent Cassel, John Gallagher Jr., Jessica Henwick, Mamoudou Athie, and Gunner Wright. This trailer undoubtedly seems to hint at some alien creature or something creepy that has emerged from the depths. The final shots definitely got my attention.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for William Eubank's Underwater, direct from Fox's YouTube:

TJ Miller though?

Here's the most logical explanation, unfortunately:

Alex Billington on Aug 19, 2019


I had a feeling this was the situation, so I get it. I don't expect everyone to replace their actors ala Kevin Spacey in All The Money In The World. TJ Miller just has that kind of face you want to punch, and that was before all that news broke about him.

seannuh on Aug 19, 2019


Yeah and perhaps this may be one of his final projects for a while...

Alex Billington on Aug 19, 2019


I hope he dies first in the movie.

A kafkaesque pastiche of post-modern Stalinist nihilism framed in a Hegelian dialectic.

True work of late capitalist social realism ... Though, I'm not sure about aufheben ...

You need some new material!

I was also a huge fan of The Signal which is the only reason I'm giving this a chance. Aliens in the water? Yup, seen this before. But, with William Eubank directing, I'm hopeful he will bring skill and depth (pun intended) to this familiar story.

Exactly how I feel.

Alex Billington on Aug 19, 2019


Finally another movie from this guy. I really enjoyed the signal. Too bad this is getting dumped in january.

Looks like it can't decide whether it wants to be a horror or a sci-fi ... But of course, it might not care about the genre conventions ...

shiboleth on Aug 19, 2019


why can't it be both?

syntaxterror on Aug 20, 2019


Right, I agree it can. To overcome genre boundaries, just being a good story. Hopefully. That's what I said with second sentence. Anyway, I agree, let's hope this gets good whatever happened to genre conventions, right?

shiboleth on Aug 21, 2019


Heck, I don't know. I like Kristen Stewart's work post that Twilight stuff and have always, always like Vincent Cassel...but this looks a bit out of his wheelhouse. I doubt I'll seek this out. Alien underwater was what I was thinking because I don't care much for monster movies...unless they are on the caliber of Alien.

It's the moron from those teen movies! And the least funny "comedian" working. She in particular is awful, as a person and an actor. Nobody will watch this, sadly. The director got screwed on the casting here, which is too bad because he's got huge potential.

Mark on Aug 19, 2019


I'm sorry but did you not see that it has Vincent Cassel? If you are not familiar with him, please go watch Partisan right away

syntaxterror on Aug 20, 2019


I'm actually not familiar with him. I'll take your advice and check that out. I hate for somebody great to get buried by lousy company.

Mark on Aug 20, 2019


Every and each of them starts with teen movies. Although, the start was really David Fincher's 'Panic Room' here, if I'm not mistaking. As for the teen movies, they are mostly awful and bad. It's business, unfortunately, and not art. She probably had to make a career decision. Same works for her male counterpart in that, I agree again, awful teen franchise. He's not bad afterwards either. Obviously. And I think she did pull some good acting stuff lately. Nothing spectacular, I agree. But also decent. So, you might not like her, but that's all. And ok. But also wrong ...

shiboleth on Aug 21, 2019


Are you talking about Stewart? Do you know her personally? If not, which I'm sure is the case, how can you judge what kind of person she is? From what you read in the media? Really? You obviously are not in the film business, but let me tell you Stewart is highly regarded and respected for both her acting and her choices. That's why she keeps working because directors like this one want to work with her. You've a right to your opinion(s), but they seem misinformed and triggered by something beyond just her because you have distorted perceptions regarding her and her work. Plus, you don't even know who the great Vincent Cassel is and that kind of ignorance is telling. He didn't seem to mind working with Stewart. I doubt you've seen the two highly regarded films she made with the same french director either. You come across as kind of like a rookie fanboy to me. Sorry, don't mean to be mean, but referring to her as a moron is a bit rude and indicative of the kind of ugliness going on in this country today.

thespiritbo on Aug 21, 2019


The Signal was pretty cool, but not great. I like the cast (apart from Miller) and it looks decent. Looks a bit action heavy though, hoping its more focused on suspense than action.
