What would summer be without a shark movie, am I right? It’s important to freak out beachgoers while continuing to villainize Great White sharks. The 2019 addition to the killer sharks hunting humans genre is 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, a sequel of sorts to 2017’s 47 Meters Down that’s just unveiled a new trailer and poster.
The first 47 Meters Down starred This Is Us‘ Mandy Moore and The Originals‘ Claire Holt. 2019’s Uncaged features John Corbett (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before), Nia Long (NCIS: Los Angeles), and Sophie Nelisse (The Book Thief). Corinne Foxx (Sweet/Vicious), Sistine Stallone, Brianne Tju (Light as a Feather), Davi Santos (Tell Me a Story), Khylin Rhambo (Teen Wolf), and Brec Bassinger (School of Rock series) also star in the shark attack horror film.
Johannes Roberts returned to direct the sequel. Roberts also co-wrote the screenplay with Ernest Riera. The behind the scenes team includes director of photography Mark Silk, editor Martin Brinkler, production designer David Bryan, and costume designer Claire Finlay.
47 Meters Down: Uncaged is set to open nationwide in theaters on August 16, 2019.
“The film follows the story of four teen girls diving in a ruined underwater city, who quickly find themselves in a watery hell as their fun outing turns into heart-stopping fear when they learn they are not alone in the submerged caves. As they swim deeper into the claustrophobic labyrinth of caves they enter the territory of the deadliest shark species in the ocean.”
