Featuring Mato Nanji

Well, maybe not the last bit, but there’s no 47 Meters Down (or Johannes Roberts’ 47 Meters Down, as the title credit bafflingly proclaims) without some serious lapses in judgment.

Lisa (Mandy Moore) and Kate (Claire Holt) are sisters who find themselves in this unlikely scenario. The equipment looks about...
