Joining the likes of Jaws, Deep Blue Sea, and Open Water comes yet another terrifying shark film to the big screen: 47 Meters Down.
In a nutshell, the film, directed by Johannes Roberts, is about two girls who get stranded at the bottom of the ocean while on a shark-diving excursion.
What's even more shocking is that one of the leading stars in this gory flick is none other than '90s Pop star, Mandy Moore.
It's finally happening! Nearly 2 years ago, @claireholt and I spent 2 months underwater in both London and the Dominican Republic to shoot #47metersdown. It's a race against the clock thriller, complete with sharks and a rapidly dwindling supply of air. Pretty much my nightmare. 🦈🦈🦈 Coming to a theatre near you on June 16th.
We're so used to her sweet self in A Walk to Remember that it's hard to envision her helpless in an ocean filled with sharks. Mandy Moore + Sharks? This is basically our worst childhood nightmare!
I dare you to watch the frightening trailer:
According to the official website, the movie's synopsis is the following:
On the rebound after a devastating break-up, Lisa (Mandy Moore) is ready for adventure while on vacation in Mexico with her sister Kate (Claire Holt). Still, she’s apprehensive when two handsome, fun-loving locals (Yani Gellman and Santiago Segura) suggest the girls join them for a shark-diving excursion on a boat skippered by Captain Taylor (Matthew Modine).
Lowered 16 feet into the Pacific Ocean in a rickety cage, Lisa and Kate catch a once-in-a-lifetime, close-up look at a group of majestic Great Whites. But Lisa’s worst fears materialize when the cage breaks away from the boat and plummets 47 meters–more than 150 feet–down to the seabed. To their horror, the sisters discover they are too deep to radio for help without leaving the cage and making themselves vulnerable to the voracious sharks, and a rapid ascent would lead to the potentially deadly condition known as the bends. With their oxygen supplies rapidly dwindling, the girls do everything in their power to get to safety, even as a series of calamitous events makes it increasingly likely they won’t escape their underwater prison alive.
A terrifying tale of survival set in the domain of the ocean’s fiercest creatures.
Also starring Claire Holt, Chris Johnson, Yani Gellman, Santiago Segura, and Matthew Modine, 47 Meters Down premieres Friday, June 16.
