Movie Meme - "Don't Get Out Of The Cage"

Release Poster

Dive shark terror film, 47 Meters Down almost didn't make it into theatres (film distributors didn't think it would draw) yet it has now grossed $34.1 million US in a coupla weeks. Interest in shark cage diving has increased to the point that there are two movies out this summer featuring Great Whites and Sharks. I am off to Barbados on Wednesday for a spot of diving and checking out Crop Over carnival prep. Will try to avoid Jaws in and out of the water.
47 Meters Down is a 2017 British Blood 'N' Bubble shark horror film directed by Johannes Roberts, written by Roberts and Ernest Riera and starring Mandy MooreClaire HoltChris J. JohnsonYani Gellman, Santiago Segura and Matthew Modine.
The film was made in an English film studio (The Underwater Studio) in Basildon, Essex.
This is what the distributor Entertainment Studios says about its movie: "The plot follows two sisters who go vacationing in Mexico and are invited to go cage diving and see sharks up close. But when the cable holding the cage breaks and it plummets to the ocean floor with the two girls trapped inside, they must find a way to escape, with their air supplies running low and being stalked by great white sharks. Made for $5 million US, it was released in the United States on June 16, 2017 and is set for release on July 28 in the United Kingdom, has received mixed reviews, and has grossed $40 million worldwide
Two IMBD trivia bits: "Mandy Moore and Claire Holt learned how to scuba dive for this movie. Neither actress scuba dived before.To replicate the organisms found underwater, finely chopped broccoli was added to the tank. Mandy Moore said it compared it to filming in soup."
