I’m not as excited as I once was for the upcoming shark horror film, THE MEG. Judging by the first trailer the studio is trying to turn it into a comedy rather than a straight horror the book is. I will be one of the first in line to see it but now I’m a bit more cautious about it. Only time will tell. Regardless, we have a new banner poster to show you guys.
The Meg will take a bite out of Summer blockbusters on August 10, 2018
The film is directed by Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure films) and stars Jason Statham, Ruby Rose, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Winston Chao, and Cuff Curtis.
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.
