47 Meters Down – Director Johannes Roberts Fought for Theatrical Ending
The latest shark film to swim our way, 47 Meters Down (review), is currently chewing up the box office at a theater near you, and recently director Johannes Roberts sat down to talk about its shocking ending.
“I had a lot of battles,” Roberts told Crave Online. “I had to fight quite hard to keep that ending, the way we finish it. It’s possibly a ballsy way to go. But yeah, I think there were various different ideas along the time, but… it suddenly became so obvious. That’s the way it has to go. Yeah, we really fought with it, fought for it.”
So how did it end? Go see for yourself, lazy bones!

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.
