SPOILERS, but the dog is presumed to be eaten by the shark, but, somehow, is revealed to be alive at the end. The dog does not die. I saw it at an AMC advance screening.

*SPOILERS* There are several animal deaths throughout the film, some of them quite gory:

- A small fish is eaten by a larger fish (swift and not gory)
- A giant squid is killed by the meg shark
- A baby humpback whale is killed onscreen by the meg, which bites it in half while it is crying for its mother. The mother is also presumably killed offscreen by the meg
- Several dead mutilated sharks are seen floating in the water, having been killed by poachers that have cut off their fins
- The smaller meg shark (there are two) is killed by the main characters, who dart it with poison
- A whale is blown up by a crew that drop several packs of dynamite on it, mistaking it for the larger meg shark
- The larger meg is killed by one of the main characters by slicing open its side and then stabbing it through the eye with a spear. It is seen being attacked and eaten by other sharks before it is fully dead.

People die in exploding/imploding submarines so we can assume someone may be crushed to death but it’s never shown. There is one instance where a glider is almost crushed but it does not happen.

I‘m marking this as no because I feel it fits better under the “sacrifice themself” catagory. Several people willingly go to/cause their own deaths to save the lives of others. It is not suicidality or suicidal ideation. It is plainly read as a horrible sacrfice and is treated as such by the other characters.

No graphic depictions of anxiety. In one scene the main character is shown to hesitate for a long time before going down underwater. It is implied that this is because he hasn't dived since an incident of diving that resulted in several deaths.

I wouldn’t say misrepresented so much as stereotyped. The black man can’t swim. The Asian father was cold and harsh to his daughter to “help her become better”. The fat characters are all “the funny ones” and don’t really have dimensions other than that.

There's a scene where the male lead is shown in a bath towel with his top half exposed. It's not gratuitous or extraneous. Like, it makes sense in the context of the film and is used to further the romantic tension between two characters

CONSIDERABLY less than one would expect from a giant shark movie, but yes, there are some bloody moments.

EARLY SPOILER: a submarine has a leak and the 2 people are likely to have drowned but the submarine exploded before it filled up with water, still killing the people. They technically did not drown but the scene could be triggering to some people.
