I absolutely love shark horror films and I’ve been waiting rather impatiently for the film adaptation of Steve Alten’s 1997 novel MEG. The film has undergone a small name change to THE MEG. The film stars action guru Jason Statham. We have another still from the film courtesy of Empire Magazine.
Look for The Meg to hit theaters on August 10, 2018.
The film stars Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Cliff Curtis, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Robert Taylor, Masi Oka, Olafur Darri Olafsson and Jessica McNamee.
A deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below…bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.
