Ever since The Shallows made bank three summers ago, studios have been building survival movies around a sole female character every summer since. This year's entry in the genre is Crawl, a movie where Kaya Scodelario goes up against a giant crocodile in a movie from the director of Piranha 3D. Here's the studio's official synopsis...

When a massive hurricane hits her Florida hometown, Haley (Kaya Scodelario) ignores evacuation orders to search for her missing father (Barry Pepper). Finding him gravely injured in the crawl space of their family home, the two become trapped by quickly encroaching floodwaters. As time runs out to escape the strengthening storm, Haley and her father discover that the rising water level is the least of their fears. From director Alexandre Aja (Piranha 3DThe Hills Have Eyes) and producers Craig Flores (300), Sam Raimi (Evil Dead), and Alexandre Aja, Crawl is a nail-biting horror thriller in theatres July 12, 2019.

So yeah, I'm sure this will scratch whatever itch people have to see a woman in peril versus a giant predator, but this sub-genre seems to have overstayed its welcome as far as I'm concerned. I'm sure all the dudes that love Kaya Scodelario will be there in force, however, when Crawl opens on July 12.
