On the heels of The MEG opening in theaters this weekend, the people behind another shark-filled movie, 47 Meters Down, decided to drop a trailer for their upcoming sequel.
The original film was directed by Johannes Roberts, written by Roberts and Ernest Riera, and starred Claire Holt and Mandy Moore. The plot followed two sisters who go on holiday to Mexico, and are invited to cage dive and see sharks up close. When the cable holding the cage breaks and it plummets to the ocean floor with the two girls trapped inside, they must find a way to escape, with their air supplies running low and great white sharks stalking nearby.
The sequel, 48 Meters Down, is scheduled for a release on June 28th, 2019 release.
48 Meters Down takes place in the backpacking mecca of Brazil, against the backdrop of the country’s vibrant culture, party atmosphere, and beautiful beaches. A group of five girls from different backgrounds and countries is united by their lust for life and adventure in the coastal metropolis of Recife. Looking to get off the well-worn tourist trail, they hear about a hidden underwater ruin from a local guide and seize the opportunity to discover their own Atlantis beneath the turquoise waves. Unbeknownst to them, the caves where the forgotten city lies are not completely uninhabited, and as they swim deeper into the submerged labyrinth of caves they enter the territory of the deadliest shark species in the ocean.
