Shark films may be the go-to choice for freaking people out, but as of lately all shark films seem to follow the same formula. That is, until 47 Meters Down‘s first trailer dropped!! Sure there is a lot of similarity between this film and 2003’s Open Water, but at least we’re not getting another Jaws ripoff. Based on the two trailers, 47 Meters Down looks tense, suspenseful, and claustrophobic as hell. The film is directed by Johannes Roberts, who co-rote the script with Ernest Riera, and stars Mandy Moore, Claire Holt, Matthew Modine, Yani Gellman, Santiago Segura, and Chris Johnson. Check out the plot crunch:
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.
Here’s the new trailer that just dropped (the film’s original trailer is at the end of the article).
What do you think? I think this one looks promising.
