    Only your second sentence is correct.

    If you change "get" to "make", then sentence 1 would be correct.

    I will get Sally to let me watch that movie.
    I will make Sally let me watch that movie.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
