Upcoming shark terror: 47 METERS DOWN


You know you're in for a horror show when the trailer of a movie debuts with the line "It's going to be the best vacation ever." 47 Meters Down has just received its first trailer and unexpectedly enough, it does look terrifying. I guess the fear of sharks never goes away, no matter how many movies you see.

After the definitive masterwork that is Jaws, filmmakers seem to have accepted the fact that Steven Spielberg‘s 1975 classic can never be surpassed. However, this doesn't stop filmmakers from trying. The Shallows last year has had a few good reviews, while the hype surrounding the Jason Statham v. Prehistoric Shark action gflick Meg, is still going on. You could say 47 Meters Down is next on the list.

The film stars Mandy Moore (This Is Us) and Claire Holt (The Originals) as two sisters who head out on a much need tropical vacation where they opt to go cave diving and get an up close look at the majesty of Great White sharks. But when the wire on their cage snaps, they find themselves trapped at the bottom of the ocean with limited oxygen and a swarm of hungry apex predators waiting between them and the surface.

Official synopsis reads:

On the rebound after a devastating break-up, Lisa (Mandy Moore) is ready for adventure while on vacation in Mexico. Even still, she needs a little extra persuasion when her daring sister Kate (Claire Holt) suggests they go shark diving with some locals. Once underwater in a protective cage, Lisa and Kate catch a once in a lifetime, face-to-face look at majestic Great Whites. But when their worst fears are realized and the cage breaks away from their boat, they find themselves plummeting to the bottom of the seabed, too deep to radio for help without making themselves vulnerable to the savage sharks, their oxygen supplies rapidly dwindling. 47 METERS DOWN is a terrifying tale of survival set in the domain of the ocean’s fiercest creatures.

Directed by Johannes Roberts (The Strangers 2), 47 Meters Down also stars Matthew Modine and arrives in theaters June 16.
