47-meters-down-slice-600x200Everyone loves a good shark romp. After the definitive masterwork that is Jaws, filmmakers seem to have accepted the fact that Steven Spielberg‘s 1975 classic can never be topped and subsequently contented themselves with creating campy, occasionally downright silly (looking at you Sharknado) spectacles and survival tales. It’s a favorite genre, and with the success of The Shallows last year and the hype surrounding the Jason Statham v. Prehistoric Shark actioner Meg, it seems to be having a bit of a resurgence at the moment.

Next up is 47 Meters Down, a movie that looks deliciously aware of exactly what kind of popcorn-chomping thriller it is. The film stars Mandy Moore (This Is Us) and Claire Holt (The Originals) as two sisters who head out on a much need tropical vacation where they opt to go cave diving and get an up close look at the majesty of Great White sharks. But when the wire on their cage snaps, they find themselves trapped at the bottom of the ocean with limited oxygen and a swarm of hungry apex predators waiting between them and the surface.

Directed by Johannes Roberts (who was recently recruited to helm the long-developed The Strangers 2), 47 Meters Down also stars Matthew Modine and arrives in theaters June 16. Watch the trailer below.

Here’s the official 47 Meters Down 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.
