Ghost Shark 2: Urban Jaws is a 2014 New Zealand film directed by Andrew Todd and Johnny Hall. It was shot on a Canon 550D in Auckland, New Zealand, with additional shooting taking place in Christchurch and Los Angeles. The cast includes Campbell Cooley, Johnny Hall, Steve Austin, Kathleen Burns and Roberto Nascimento.
Ghost Shark 2 originated as a faux trailer in the vein of Hobo With A Shotgun, released on YouTube in August 2010. The trailer got posted on many websites such as Cinefantastique, SlashFilm and Premiere.fr., and CBSSports.com The online attention prompted the directors to turn the faux trailer into a feature film, and production on this feature version began.
A second teaser was released on December 24, 2010 along with behind-the-scenes photos and information on the official website.
A third trailer was released on August 14, 2013:
The plot concerns the mayor of Auckland and an “expert ghost shark hunter” as they fight to save the city from a supernatural beast known as Ghost Shark. Despite being labelled “Ghost Shark 2”, it is not related to Syfy’s Ghost Shark. The tone of the film is that of a serious drama, despite the seemingly parodic subject material.
