Thanks to her starring role on NBC’s hit drama This Is Us, Mandy Moore’s career has never been hotter. Will audiences follow her into the theater for her new movie, 47 Meters Down? Moore and Claire Holt star as twin sisters who try to cheat death after becoming trapped in a shark cage during an ocean dive. With less than an hour’s supply of oxygen and sharks circling the cage, they have to figure out how to make it to the surface in one piece! With its stars confined and facing near-certain death, the movie is part action movie, part psychological drama… with a little bit of Jaws terror thrown in for good measure. With a mix like that, Moore and Holt believe it’s really a genre all its own.
Mandy Moore stars in one of television’s most acclaimed shows with This Is Us, and now she and fellow NBC vet Claire Holt (Aquarius) venture in shark infested waters with 47 Meters Down.
Still recovering from a break-up, Lisa (Moore) heads to Mexico with her adventurous sister Kate (Holt). The siblings are placed in a protective cage to get an up close and experience with sharks. When the cage breaks from their boat, they are stranded in the ocean with just one hour left of oxygen. With their chances of survival steadily dwindling, the women are hoping that help is just around the corner. Full Metal Jacket’sMatthew Modine co-stars in the flick.
“My heart was in my throat the entire time I was reading it,” said Moore. “This is an interesting premise and if it’s done right it’s like anything I’ve ever seen before and it could make a big splash no pun intended!”
