GREAT WHITE (2021) Preview of Australian shark movie


Great White is a 2021 Australian action horror film about five people that become trapped on a reef surrounded by hungry sharks.

Directed by Martin Wilson – making his feature directorial debut – from a screenplay by Michael Boughen (Dying Breed; producer of The Loved Ones), the movie was produced by Pam Collis, Neal Kingston and Michael Robertson (The Pack; Road Kill; The Reef; Black Water and its sequel).

The movie stars Katrina Bowden (Hunter’s Moon; Hold Your Breath; Nurse 3D; Tucker and Dale vs. Evil), Kimie Tsukakoshi, Aaron Jakubenko, Tatjana Marjanovic (Monsters of Man), Tim Kano (King Kong 2005) and Te Kohe Tuhaka (Love and Monsters).


Seaplane operators and lovers Kaz Fellows (Katrina Bowden) and Charlie Brody (Aaron Jakubenko), along with their passengers, Joji Minase (Tim Kano), his wife Michelle (Kimie Tsukakoshi), and cook Benny (Te Kohe Tuhaka), who take a flight to the picturesque Hell’s Reef.

It isn’t long though before their idyllic trip turns into a living hell when they become abandoned miles from shore and in grave danger from what lurks just below the surface. Their only chance of making it out alive is to get to the beach, but with two Great White sharks hunting them, the odds are not in their favour. What ensues is a battle for survival of the most epic proportions against nature’s most lethal predators…


Director Martin Wilson said, “The most important thing is that we tell a story and keep it as real as possible for the audience. Under the direction of production designer Adam Head, an array of sharks have been built, and by using a combination of techniques we believe Great White will have audiences completely engrossed and convinced it was worth buying the ticket. It’s all about the experience.”
