Last summer showed us that people still want to see actresses squaring off against sharks. The Shallows was a solid hit, and now if you’re hungry for another woman-vs-shark movie, Sony has you covered with 47 Meters Down. The film follows two women (played by Mandy Moore and Claire Holt) who go shark diving, but when their shark cage breaks away from the boat and plunges 47 meters below, they must figure out how to survive before their oxygen runs out. That’s a solid premise for a thriller, and I’m on board to see Moore/Holt fight off great white sharks.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 admit-two passes to the Atlanta screening of 47 Meters Down. To enter for a chance to see the movie early and for free, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “47 METERS DOWN”. The screening is on Tuesday, June 13th at 7:30PM at Landmark Midtown, so please don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable. Multiple entries from a single person will disqualify all entries from that person.
Check out the trailer for 47 Meters Down below. The film opens June 16th.
Here’s the official 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.
