In a bit of a change of scenery for her, Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart stars in upcoming deep sea sci-fi adventure Underwater.

Looking somewhat akin to Alien meets The Meg, Stewart plays the captain of an undersea research facility that gets damaged by an earthquake. In order to survive, she and her crew must cross the ocean floor by foot to an abandoned rig –  but mysterious sea monsters have other plans for them.

The video below features interview snippets with director William Eubank and his cast, touching upon some of the challenges that they faced in bringing Underwater to the screen.

Go Underwater in Australian cinemas from January 23.
