The wait is over, for those of you who may have been waiting…

Great White Shark opens this weekend in the following theatres:

In New Orleans, in 1570 film 3D:

Incidentally, while you’re at the Tennessee Aquarium, check out the “Blue Water, White Death” Shark Cage, designed by the film’s director Peter Gimbel.

A similar cage was used to capture the underwater scenes for “Great White Shark 3D.” D.J. Roller, the film’s director of underwater photography, said the cage used for “Great White Shark 3D” was built based on Gimbel’s design. “It’s very much like the one you have at the Aquarium,” said Roller. “It has buoyancy chambers so we could drive it up and down in the water column. If people step into your cage, they have a sense of what we used.”
