Ah, it’s my favorite time of the year. When spring gradually warms into summer, the sky is at its bluest, the sun is warm but not too hot, and there’s always at least one movie about killer fish on its way into theaters. This year it’s 47 Meters Down, starring Mandy Moore and Claire Holt, who decide to spend part of their beach vacation in an underwater shark cage…before EVERYTHING GOES EXACTLY AS PLANNED AND THEY COME BACK UP SAFELY.
Just kidding, everything goes to Hell. The cage breaks loose of the boat and they end up … 47 Meters Down below the water, surrounded by sharks and with precious little oxygen in their tanks. It’s a pretty cool setup for a thriller, one that introduces a little claustrophobia to the usual killer shark scenario, AND Matthew Modine is involved. I’m in!
You can see the trailer for 47 Meters Down below. The film comes out on June 16th, 2017, so you might want to get any beach trips you have planned done before then.
