(mbc.net) Dr. Susan McAlester (Saffron Burrows) leads a team of scientists attempting to discover a cure for Alzheimer's disease.  Their laboratories are located underwater, inside a former submarine refueling facility; this gives them easy access to sharks, whose brain tissue may hold clues to eradicating the illness.

McAlester's efforts unexpectedly backfire however.  When she transfers some of the modified brain tissue back into the sharks, they become more intelligent, angrier, and more dangerous.  Soon the crew is under attack by sharks that break through the facility's glass.  Can they possibly escape and simultaneously prevent these beasts from breeding?

Deep Blue Sea more than doubled its $60 million budget, grossing a total of $165 million internationally.
