There are early signs that The Shallows 《鲨滩》, the shark-survival film starring Blake Lively that's causing a feeding frenzy at the US box office, might be coming to Chinese cinema screens.

A Chinese-language trailer for the film was released today, just days after the low-budget B-movie thriller hit screens in North America.

Local movie news website MTime says there’s a “possibility” the film will be shown in China – which more often than not means it totally will.

Made on a modest production budget of USD 17 million, the film tells the story of a surfer who finds herself in hot water when she's bitten by a Great White shark.

Directed by action throwback filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, The Shallows is already exceeding expectations making back USD 16.8 million of that modest budget in its debut.

Even better, the critical reviews coming through so far are pretty positive with the film garnering a 73 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes.

So you’ve been warned. Don’t be tempted to dip into this little ocean thriller on any screen other than a big one at your local cinema.
