As Hitfix.com noted last week, "It's been almost exactly ten years since Halle Berry picked up a best actress Oscar, and she's celebrating the anniversary with the release of the Video on Demand thriller 'Dark Tide.' " At the time, Hitfix noted that theatrical release was also planned. But it probably won't be a significant release with the movie hitting store shelves on April 24.
The official word:
Prepare to swim with the sharks this spring as Lionsgate debuts Dark Tide on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and Digital Download. Starring Academy Award® winner Halle Berry (Best Actress in a Leading Role, Monster's Ball, 2001) and Olivier Martinez (Unfaithful), the taut and suspenseful thriller follows a small boat expedition deep into the dangerous South African waters known as Shark Alley. Dark Tide is directed by John Stockwell, (Into the Blue, Blue Crush, Turistas), from a screenplay by Amy Sorlie and Ronnie Christensen (story by Amy Sorlie).
Kate (Berry) is a shark expert whose business has been failing since a shark attack killed a fellow diver under her command. Once dubbed "the shark whisperer," Kate is haunted by the memory of the attack and unable to get back into the water. With bills piling up and the bank about to foreclose on Kate's boat, Kate's ex-boyfriend Jeff (Martinez) presents her with a lucrative opportunity: lead a thrill-seeking millionaire businessman on a dangerous shark dive...outside the cage. Battling her self-doubts and fear, Kate accepts the proposal -- and sets a course for the world's deadliest feeding ground: Shark Alley.
