The megalodon bites back in the new The Black Demon poster
The 2023 releases restarted the monster trend, this time with nature as the villain. Following the Elizabeth Banks-Staged black comedy film cocaine bearas well as the lackluster slasher film Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey– whose villains can in some ways be considered animals – another man-eating creature is set to splash into theaters with the forthcoming release of the black demon, that promises to deliver a fresh perspective on a widespread genre. Shortly after the trailer’s recent release, a poster was also unveiled showing the danger looming on the surface as a giant shark based on a Mexican legend strikes fear and bites anyone who tries to get close.
Directed by Adrian Gruenber– whose credits in gore films include the year 2019 Sylvester Stallone-with Rambo: Last blood MOVIE – The new poster for the upcoming killer shark movie has the tagline ‘Nature Bites Back’ and highlights the morbidly large black megalodon as it hunts its prey. The poster also features the Sturges family watching from afar as their seemingly idyllic family vacation turns into a nightmare. Aside from the newly released poster, a few images were also revealed and while the series of photos didn’t reveal much about what viewers can expect in the forthcoming film, they did show how the family and people of each city are dealing with the inevitable threat that can approach at any time of the day.
Based on a Mexican legend The Black Demon focuses on Paul Sturges (Josh Lucas) with his family for a supposedly nice holiday in Bahia Negra. However, a huge beast has been awakened, ready to kill anyone just to protect its territory. When Paul and his family travel to the platform to further investigate the problem, they find themselves trapped with several other men, leaving them with no choice but to find a way out before nature starts to “bite back”. .
Though it’s not a new concept – to say the least – with several killer shark-related features already in place, including deep blue sea, The Shallows, 47 meters in depth, The mega, soul surferand of course the classic from 1975, Jawwhich has become a franchise due to the well-received critical reception of the first, The Black Demon differs with its promising premise of focusing on a terrifying legend about black sharks that has struck terror among people who have claimed to have seen the beast. And while the story remains a myth at this point, it’s safe to say that the thought of a giant shark as the villain still bites and will surely still provide thrills when the film releases on June 28th.
In addition to Lucas starring in the upcoming film, the rest of the cast is also included Fernanda Urrejola, Venus Ariel, Julio Cesar Cedillo, Raul Mendez, Hector Jimenez, Jorge A Jimenez, Edgar FloresAnd Luis del Valle. You can check out the following poster:
