Another Killer Shark Movie: First Trailer for '47 Meters Down: Uncaged'

"We're going to die down here!" Esmp has debuted an official trailer for the angry shark horror movie 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, a sequel to the other cheesy killer shark movie 47 Meters Down from 2017. As a reminder for Americans, 47 meters is equal to roughly 154 feet (underwater). And while they did try the title 48 Meters Down for this sequel, they changed it to Uncaged. "The film will tell the story of four teens diving in a ruined underwater city, who quickly find themselves in a watery hell as their adventure turns to horror when they learn they are not alone in the submerged caves. As they swim deeper into the claustrophobic labyrinth of caves they enter the territory of the deadliest shark species in the ocean." This shark movie stars Brec Bassinger, John Corbett, Nia Long, Sophie Nelisse, Corinne Foxx, Brianne Tju, Sistine Stallone, and Khylin Rhambo. We posted an early teaser for this last year,

Daily Dead’s 2019 Spring/Summer Movie Preview

With Pet Sematary (2019) headed to theaters today, that means we’re officially kicking off the Spring Movie Season, which makes it the perfect time to take a look ahead at all the horror, sci-fi, and genre-adjacent films headed to big and small screens in the coming months. And considering the Summer Movie Season seems to unofficially kick off earlier and earlier every year, this writer thought it only made sense to just go ahead and get a jump on the titles you should keep an eye out for in theaters or on VOD through August 2019.

Even though the movie gods have already been great to us horror fans over the last several months, we have so many exciting films to look forward to in the near future, including a new Hellboy, The Curse of La Llorona, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Brightburn, John Wick: Chapter 3, The Dead Don’t Die,

Resident Evil Reboot Loses Producer James Wan

Resident Evil Reboot Loses Producer James Wan
James Wan is no longer producing the Resident Evil Reboot. The upcoming reboot of the big screen version of the popular zombie video game franchise entered development very shortly after the most recent movie, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, hit theaters last year. Not long after, it was revealed that Wan, the man behind The Conjuring franchise, had boarded as a producer. Unfortunately, that didn't last.

The prolific filmmaker has been making the rounds promoting his latest movie Aquaman. Aside from his work directing, James Wan produces, or at least flirts with producing, many other high-profile projects. During a recent interview, Wan was asked about the Resident Evil reboot and firmly confirmed that he's not involved anymore, while also explaining some of his larger frustrations with the fact that projects he's working on, or in some cases not working on, get announced before they're real. Here's what Wan had to say about it.

Resident Evil reboot hires 47 Meters Down director

Any fans of Capcom’s Resident Evil videogame franchise must have rejoiced at the news that horror supremo and Aquaman director James Wan was to produce a reboot for the big screen, and now Constantin Film have found their director in the form of 47 Meters Down‘s Johannes Roberts.

According to Variety, Roberts will begin production early next year, once he has finished work on the sequel to his shark thriller, the unimaginatively titled, 47 Meters Down: The Next Chapter.

Despite being phenomenally successful at the box office, grossing somewhere in the region of $1.2 billion, the Milla Jovovich iteration of Resident Evil is as far from the slow-burn horror brilliance of Shinji Mikami and Tokuro Fujiwara’s original game as possible. However, in a recent interview, screenwriter Greg Russo stated his desire to “go back and make it scary again like a horror film”, which can only be seen as

‘47 Meters Down: The Next Chapter’ Teaser Trailer: More Sharks and Screams Are on the Way in 2019 — Watch

In no coincidence whatsoever, hours before Warner Bros. began screening “The Meg” nationwide, Entertainment Studios dropped the teaser trailer Thursday for its own shark film. “47 Meters Down: The Next Chapter” is the sequel to “47 Meters Down,” last year’s second-highest grossing indie ($44 million domestic). The follow-up, once again from British director Johannes Roberts, was greenlit in October, with the working title “48 Meters Down.”

47 Meters Down” starred Mandy Moore and was released three months before the premiere of her hit NBC series “This Is Us.” She and Claire Holt (“The Vampire Diaries”) played sisters vacationing in Mexico who encounter multiple sharks while scuba diving; only the former survived. “We’d never really seen a shark movie do poorly, so I felt good about it,” Entertainment Studios founder, owner, chairman, and CEO Byron Allen told IndieWire in 2017, when asked about the film that put him in the distribution business.

48 Meters Down director describes the sequel as “The Descent underwater”

Director Johannes Roberts scored a surprise hit last year with his shark thriller 47 Meters Down, which pulled in over $60 million worldwide from a budget of $5.5 million, and prompted production company The Fyzz Studio to greenlight a sequel, 48 Meters Down, for release next year.

The sequel will feature an entirely new story, focussing on a group of young women who set out to explore some underwater ruins located off the beaten trail in Brazil, only to find themselves hunted by sharks. And, speaking to Bloody Disgusting, Roberts has drawn comparisons with Neil Marshall’s cult 2005 horror The Descent:

“If I had to pitch it in a very simple way, I would describe it as The Descent underwater,” said Roberts. “So it will be six or seven people trapped in the caves in Brazil, an underwater city… It’ll all be cave diving which is the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done.
