47 Metres Down

Synopsis: Two sisters vacationing in Mexico are trapped in a shark cage at the bottom of the ocean. With less than an hour of oxygen left and great white sharks circling nearby, they must fight to survive.

- Shark got you.

- Are you serious? Look what you did.

I'll get you a new one.

Can we please do something?

I'm so bored. I don't know

how you can just lie in the sun all day.

No, I'm gonna go back to the room.

I told Stuart I'd give him a call.

- Bring me a drink back. Thank you.

- Yeah, you wish.

Nice ass.

I want to make a toast. Come on!

Thank you so much for bringing me on

vacation. It's gonna be the best time ever.

- Cheers.

- Cheers. Thanks for coming.

Stuart is missing out.

- I'm way more fun anyway.

- You are.





Hey. What are you doing?

What's wrong?

I lied.

What are you talking about?

I lied about why Stuart isn't on this trip.

- What?

- He's not working.

What do you mean?

He left me, Kate. He broke up with me.

Oh, my God.

- Why didn't you tell me?

- 'Cause I was embarrassed.

Do Mom and Dad know?

The one good thing in my life,

I managed to f*ck up.

What happened?

It's my fault. He got bored.

- He actually said that?

- Yeah. Kind of, more or less.

And then I thought if I came on

this trip and I came away with you...

...and I had fun and I showed

that I could be fun...

...somehow he would come back, but...

- Come on.

- What?

- Come on, we have to get dressed.

- For what?

You and I are going out.

Going out where? It's 1:00 in the morning.

Lisa, it's Mexico. You and I are

the only ones who aren't out. Come on.

I've been dying to do this all week.

This is the best night ever.

Oh, I could be here all night!

- That is crazy. You guys are insane.

- Seriously, you have to try.

We do it almost every weekend. It's amazing.

Yeah, yeah. Look. 25-foot great white sharks.

They come right up to your cage.

- 25 foot?

- You've never seen anything like it.

How much does it cost?


Bueno. It's like $100 each.

We know Taylor. He's like a friend of ours.

- Great.

- Um... I don't know.

What are you gonna do,

sit by the pool all day long?

- Seriously?

- I don't even know how to dive.

I will teach you everything you need to know.

But I need one of those,

like, diving card certification.

- You took that whole class!

- Okay, okay, look, look.

This is Mjico, okay? It's not even diving.

You're gonna be in a cage. You're only

down 5 minutes. It's totally safe.

Exactly. It's like you're going

to the zoo, except you're in the cage.

- And underwater.

- S.

Come on, it sounds amazing. Please?

- I don't know.

- You could just think of the photos.

I mean, they won't be the type of photos

that a boring person would take.

Just saying.

- She's got a good point.

- Think of the photos.

- Think of the photos.

- Okay.

- All right.

- Cheers.

- Salud.

- Salud.

Well, good, I am pleased.

Yeah, I just wanted to say I had

a really good night tonight.

- Me, too.

- Yeah?



Not... ready.

- Thank you.

- No, it's okay. It's fine.

- See you tomorrow.

- Tomorrow for sure.

Come on.

- Oh. Good night!

- Buenas noches.


- I'll see you tomorrow.

- S.

Adios. Buenas noches.

They are so cute.

- Oh, cute. Hey.

- Hola.

I am so looking forward to this.

It's gonna be amazing.

I can't believe you talked me into this.

I did not talk you into this, okay.

You just wanted to see the guys again.

I did not.

- Do not lie to me.

- Okay, he's kind of cute.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

- Kate, I don't know about this.

- It'll be fun. I promise.

It... they're probably

not going to show anyway, so...

- Hola, chicas!

- Hey!

- Hey, hola!

- How's it going?

- Hola.

- Hey, how are you?

I'm so glad you came.

I wasn't sure you were going to.

- Yep, here we are.
