Great White Shark (3D) unravels the mystery of the creature we love to fear—the great white shark. It goes to the depths of human daring to tell the true story of its role atop the oceanic food chain.
Great White Shark takes viewers around the world to great white hotspots including the waters of Guadalupe Island; newly-discovered shark territory around Stewart Island (located off the coast of New Zealand); the waters of South Africa’s “flying” great whites; and the California coast near Los Angeles. Narrated by actor Bill Nighy, the film examines what we know about these incredible animals through the eyes of several people whose lives and work have become inextricably linked to the great white.
