The first U.S. trailer for “47 Meters Down” was released today, the shark-thriller is set to hit theaters later this summer. In the film Lisa (Mandy Moore) is getting over her recent breakup with a trip to Mexico, where things don’t go exactly as planned.
While ready for adventure, Lisa needs a little extra persuasion after 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. They are soon too deep to radio for help without making themselves vulnerable to the savage sharks, and their oxygen supplies are rapidly dwindling. The studio teased the film stating “’47 Meters Down’ is a terrifying tale of survival set in the domain of the ocean’s fiercest creatures”. You can watch the first trailer for the thriller below, thanks to an early morning upload from the studio.
