"No matter where you go, there you are."


They’re going to need a much larger seagoing vessel in the new photo from The Meg


The Meg has been in development since 1997, but it fell off the grid when Deep Blue Sea beat it to the cinema. Since then, it has been bubbling away in development hell. Based on Steve Alten’s bestseller of the same name, it deals with man’s encounter with the long thought extinct 60-foot Megalodon shark.

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.

John Turteltaub (National Treasure) directs the film, which stars Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Cliff Curtis, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose), Winston Chao, Page Kennedy, Jessica McNamee, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Robert Taylor, Sophia Shuya Cai, and Masi Oka.

I do love a shark movie so I’m looking forward to seeing this one.

EW had this new image that shows how big the shark is.

The Meg hits cinemas on 10th August 2018.
