Jason Statham Almost Gets Eaten By a Giant Shark in New Trailer and Poster For THE MEG
If you liked what you saw in the first trailer that was released for Jason Statham's The Meg, you'll definitely want to watch this new international trailer for the film. It's a shorter trailer that has a very different tone than the last one that was released, but it features some new footage including Jason Statham narrowly escaping being eaten by the giant Megalodon shark! I've also included a new poster that you can see above that amusingly takes a shot at Steven Spielberg's Jaws. I can't wait to see this movie!
In the film, 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.
The movie was directed by John Turteltaub (National Treasure) and it also stars Jessica McNamee, Li Bingbing, Winston Chao, Ruby Rose, Rainn Wilson, Cliff Curtis, and Robert Taylor.
The Meg will be released in theaters on August 10th, 2018.
