For the last years, it seems like the summer campaign in cinemas must have mandatorily a horror sharks flick. First, it was Jaume Collet-Serra’s The Shallows (2016) the title who brought the horror to the calm idyllic crystal waters. The following year we saw the release of 47 Meters Down (2017), that with a very modest production that managed to gross almost 10 times its budget. And this year it is undebatable, the horror title of the summer is The Meg (2018), which is achieving astonishing numbers on its early days out.
The 28th of June next year comes out the sequel of one of the previously mentioned titles, 47 Meters Down: The Next Chapter (2019). Director Johannes Roberts repeats behind the cameras with a screenplay wrote by him and Ernest Riera, as they did with the first movie. This adds a new title to his already extensive enough career in horror movies including titles like Hellbreeder (2004), Darkhunters (2004), Forest of the Damned (2005), The Expelled (2010), Storage 24 (2012), The Other Side of the Door (2016) and the recent The Strangers: Prey at Night (2018).
In 47 Meters Down (2017), 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. The sequel has been shot secretly so not much is known about the cast and plot. Director Johannes Roberts has mentioned that this new film would be similar to The Descent (2005) but with sharks. And that the Mexican waters are changed this time for Brazilian underwater caves. The first teaser for the movie is already here, and although doesn’t reveal much of the story the images are shocking and thrilling enough. You can check it out here:
