LOS ANGELES (July 6, 2012) â€“ Anchor Bay Films announces BAIT 3D will be available to screen in cities nationwide through Tugg, Inc. (â€œTuggâ€), a collective action web platform that enables moviegoers to choose the films that play in their local theaters. Starting today, fans can sign up to bring BAIT 3D (http://www.tugg.com/Bait3D) to their theater to share the intense 3D, bloodthirsty shark action on screen with their local community. The film will be available to screen through Tugg starting on September 9th in conjunction with its theatrical release in select cities.
“Bait In 3D is the ultimate shark thrill ride that will make you think twice about getting back in the water,” said Kevin Kasha, Executive Vice President, Acquisitions and Co-Productions for Anchor Bay Films.
When a monstrous freak tsunami hits a sleepy beach community, a group of survivors from different walks of life find themselves trapped inside a submerged grocery store. As they try to escape to safety, they soon discover that there is a predator among them more deadly than the threat of drowningâ€”vicious great white sharks lurking in the water, starved hungry for fresh meat.
As the bloodthirsty sharks begin to pick the survivors off one by one, the group realizes that they must work together to find a way out without being eaten alive.
This intense 3D thriller features a stellar ensemble cast, including Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), Sharni Vinson (Step Up 3D), Alex Russell (Chronicle), and Julian McMahon (Fantastic Four).
