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.

- Okay, should we do it?

- Yeah, let's go see the boat.

- Okay.

- Oh, you lead the way.

- Okay.

- So, uh, how did you sleep?

- Uh, I slept all right.

- I had a really good time last night.

- Me, too. You guys are funny.

- How is your head?

- Uh, it hurts.


- We're gonna go talk to the captain.

- Okay.

I... really...

I feel super uneasy about this.

- Come on, it'll be fine.

- I mean, is this even safe?

We don't know anything about these people.

Remember what the concierge said?

- That we should book all activities and...

- He works for the hotel. He has to say that.

I've just heard horror stories about

tourists going on these shady trips.

- And Stuart even told me that...

- Stuart is a prick, Lisa.

- It'll be fun. Come on.

- Hey, come on over. Don't be shy.

- Okay.

- This is, uh, Taylor, the captain.

- Hola. Hola.

- Hola.

- Buenos das. Cmo estn?

- Bien.

You both know how to scuba dive, right?

Yeah. Mm-hmm.

All right, well, welcome aboard.


Ah, gracias.


I know you're clumsy, so don't fall in, okay?

There she is.

Oye, Javi.

Watch your step.

- Here we are.

- Gracias.


Oh, no.

- Here.

- Kate, have you seen the cage?

Put those tanks in the back,

keep them out of the sun.

Relax. You're gonna have

the time of your life, I promise.

It'll be fun!

I'm scared.

This looks like the spot.

- This is it?

- Yeah.

- This is totally it.

- Really?

This is going to be amazing.

- It's feeding time. You hungry? Huh?

- Ugh, it's disgusting. No.

Hmm? No?

- You hungry? Huh?

- Oh.

Oh, my God, gross.

There we go, feeding time.

- That's so gross.

- That's... that reeks, huh?

I thought it was illegal to chum the water.

You think I should call

the shark instead? Mr. Shark!


Mr. Shark, hello!
