Most people would never dare get in a shark cage. Those who are brave enough probably have a specific set of fears. Maybe a smaller shark will slip through the bars? Maybe a strong shark will pry the bars apart? But here’s a fear that may not immediately spring to mind: What if the shark cage gets cut loose and sinks to the bottom of the ocean?
That’s the very premise of 47 Meters Down, starring Mandy Moore and Claire Holt as two sisters who decide to take a totally ordinary dip in a shark cage. The cable holding the cage snaps, though, sending the two plummeting to the depths below. Will they have enough air? And if they don’t, do they dare leave the safety of the cage?
That’s the kind of diabolically simple premise that often makes for memorable thrillers, and as you can see from the new trailer below, it looks like 47 Meters Down is a must-watch for anyone who loves this kind of survival scenario. Check it out.
47 Meters Down hits theaters on June 16, 2017.
