Beginning August 1, Tubi brings back summer favorite SHARK MONTH: BITEFEST, a month-long programming event filled with heart-pumping, action-packed thrills, featuring two new Tubi Originals, SHARK BAIT and SHARK SIDE OF THE MOON, plus more than 70 films available to stream on FOX Entertainment’s free streaming service.
Kicking off the celebration for shark lovers will be the debut of the Tubi Original movie SHARK BAIT, premiering Monday, Aug. 1, following a group of friends whose weekend goes awry as they fall victim to underwater predators. SHARK MONTH: BITEFEST heats up even more with the debut of Tubi Original movie SHARK SIDE OF THE MOON, premiering Friday, Aug. 12, a sci-fi thriller from The Asylum who famously brought us all the cult-classic “Sharknado” franchise.
SHARK BAIT and SHARK SIDE OF THE MOON join a robust lineup of both thrilling and educational titles that include all four installments of the iconic “Jaws” franchise, as well as the Tubi Original “Swim,” starring Joey Lawrence; “Swamp Shark,” starring Kristy Swanson; “Dark Waters,” starring Lorenzo Lamas; and “Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda,” featuring Conan O’Brien; as well as the documentaries “Gordon Ramsay: Shark Bait,” “Saving Jaws” and “Shark Land.”
In Tubi Original SHARK BAIT, from Vertical Entertainment and premiering Aug. 1, a group of friends enjoying a weekend steal a couple of jet skis, race them out to sea and end up in a horrific head-on collision. They struggle to find a way home with a badly injured friend, while from the waters below, predators lurk. SHARK BAIT stars Holly Earl (“Doctor Who”), Thomas Michael Flynn (“Happy Place”), Malachi Pullar-Latchman (“YO!”), Jack Trueman (“The Conversation”) and Catherine Amy Hannay (“Doctors”).
Tubi Original SHARK SIDE OF THE MOON, from The Asylum and premiering Aug. 12, travels back in time to the Cold War, when the USSR developed hyper-aggressive humanoid sharks. Unable to kill them, USSR military scientists launched the sharks at the moon. Flash-forward to present day and the first team of American astronauts on the moon in decades must repair a module found on the dark side of the moon, where the astronauts encounter the unkillable Russian moon sharks and endure an epic fight for their lives. SHARK SIDE OF THE MOON stars Reginald William Stalling (“Everyone Wants Theirs”), Maxi Witrak (“Maggie”), Terrance Livingston Jr. (“JoJo & Pitt”), Lydia Hunter (“The Deck”), Konstantin Podprugin (“Walter”), Tania Fox (“Children of Agony”), Michael Austin Deni (“T-Rex Ranch”), Michael Marcel (“Sanador: The Healer”), Roman Chsherbakov (“All Our Dishes”), Ego Miktas (“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), Lindsey Marie (“Bull Shark”) and Sandi Todorovic (“Coasters”).
