We’ve been hearing rumors that the official trailer for The Meg will be coming out soon. Hopefully within the next week. This is one we’ve been anxious about for a long time and we can’t wait to see this massive shark in action!
The Meg is based on Steve Alten’s eponymous 1997 novel and revolves around a gigantic, prehistoric shark. It is directed by Jon Turteltaub and stars Jason Statham, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Jessica McNamee, Cliff Curtis, and more.
Official Synopsis for The Meg:
“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 (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.”
Until the trailer drops, we have an exclusive photo still from EW to share with you. It’s a GIANT tease of what’s to come!
I have to agree with Bloody Disgusting when they said “the tubes look like delicious fruit loops” and I’m guessing the shark will think so too. The Meg will devour people left and right when Warner Bros. Pictures releases it on August 10, 2018. Are you excited about this one? Let us know if you’ll be watching it!
