47 Meters Down ia not another shark terror story. Well, maybe it is but this time the unwilling victims are two sisters which zero scuba diving knowledge thrust into the word imaginable situation. Straight out of your “fear-of-sharks-nightmares.”

Moore plays Lisa who vacations in Mexico with her sister, Kate (Claire Holt), after a breakup with a no holds barred attitude that goes terribly wrong. After being convinced by locals to take a gander at scuba diving, the sisters decide to try their hand at shark diving but the support wire to their protective cage snaps, plummeting the women down to the ocean’s depths.

Cue hours of terrifying, edge of your seat scares as they try to make their way to surface without getting eaten. Speaking with EW Mandy Moore says of her time filming: “The majority of the movie is us completely freaking out. Imagine somebody who’s at the bottom of the ocean, who’s never gone diving before, doesn’t know how to clear her air or what any of her equipment does. It’s the f—ing most terrifying nightmare on the planet to her. Most of the time I was shooting, I would be going through my [oxygen] tank in two seconds because I was hyperventilating.”

Take a look at the new trailer and stills below.
