Trailer Watch: Mandy Moore is '47 METERS' Deep in Shark-Infested Water

The first thing I thought when I saw this trailer for 47 METERS DOWN, in which Mandy Moore is terrorized by bloodthirsty shark, is "But if you eat Mandy Moore, who will take care of the three little kids on This Is Us?" Needless to say, I am a huge fan of the NBC series (which just announced a new Thursday night time slot), so from here on out Moore will forever be remembered for her surprisingly impressive work on that show.

But, while the show is in between seasons, Moore has swam out the deep end in the ultimate summer thriller cliche, as bait in shark-infested waters. I'm here enough for it, if only as a sucker for shark thrillers but also because I have renewed interest in Moore's career after This Is Us. Here's the synopsis for 47 METERS DOWN:

On the rebound after a devastating break-up, Lisa (Mandy Moore) is ready for adventure while on vacation in Mexico. Even still, she needs a little extra persuasion when her daring sister Kate (Claire Holt) suggests they go shark diving with some locals. Once underwater in a protective cage, Lisa and Kate catch a once in a lifetime, face-to-face look at majestic Great Whites. But when their worst fears are realized and the cage breaks away from their boat, they find themselves plummeting to the bottom of the seabed, too deep to radio for help without making themselves vulnerable to the savage sharks, their oxygen supplies rapidly dwindling. 47 METERS DOWN is a terrifying tale of survival set in the domain of the ocean's fiercest creatures.

Yeah, I don't know why anybody would go shark diving either, not anyone who's ever watched the news anyway. Also, just a heads up, Johannes Roberts, who directed the wretched horror The Other Side of the Door, wrote and directed this project. Just thought I'd let you know that little fun fact,

Watch the trailer:

47 METERS DOWN is in theaters June 16.
