Just the premise of this film has me gasping; what if you were trapped underwater in a shark cage, as great white sharks circled above you? Yeah. Feel it? Uh huh. That’s 47 Meters Down, and it sounds like a (great) white-knuckle of a time. Synopsis!
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.
All I can say is that they better not do anything to Rebecca Pearson, dammit! Hear me now!
47 Meters Down da-dummms into theaters June 16th, 2017.
