’47 Meters Down: The Next Chapter’ Trailer Goes Back Into Shark Infested Waters

It’s Shark Week of a different variety, with The Meg hitting theaters and now the first trailer for sequel 47 Meters Down: The Next Chapter. Last summer’s hit was something of a surprise, earning $61M on a meager $6M budget, a sequel was quickly ordered and put into production, as you can see by the quick turnaround on this footage.

Don’t be fooled by the title, because it doesn’t seem as if there’s any connection to the prior film, which starred Mandy Moore and Claire Holt as friends who go cage diving in Mexico, only to get trapped inside while surrounded by great white sharks. Neither actress is involved in the sequel, and the action has moved to Brazil where “a group of girls looking for adventure in the coastal metropolis of Recife. Hoping to get off the well-worn tourist trail, they hear about some hidden underwater ruins only to find that the turquoise waves of their secret Atlantis aren’t completely uninhabited.”

Director Johannes Roberts and screenwriter Ernest Riera are back so there is at least some continuity here. 47 Meters Down: The Next Chapter opens June 28th 2019.
