It’s less than a week to go before we can sink our teeth into the highly anticipated blockbuster film, The Meg! This killer shark flick hits theaters on August 10th! PopHorror stumbled upon some fun film artwork from IMP Awards that may be garnered more toward sharks than people. Let’s take a closer look at the nutritional value of a human being!
Storyline of The Meg courtesy of Warner Brothers:
Five years ago, expert sea diver and Naval Captain Jonas Taylor encountered an unknown danger in the unexplored recesses of the Mariana Trench that forced him to abort his mission and abandon half his crew. Though the tragic incident earned him a dishonorable discharge, what ultimately cost him his career, his marriage and any semblance of honor was his unsupported and incredulous claims of what caused it – an attack on his vessel by a mammoth, 70-foot sea creature, believed to be extinct for more than a million years. But when a submersible lies sunk and disabled at the bottom of the ocean – carrying his ex-wife among the team onboard – he is the one who gets the call. Whether a shot at redemption or a suicide mission, Jonas must confront his fears and risk his own life and the lives of everyone trapped below on a single question: Could the Carcharodon Megalodon – the largest marine predator that ever existed – still be alive … and on the hunt?
The film stars Jason Statham (Crank, Transporter, Death Race), Ruby Rose (XXX-The Return of Xander Cage, Orange is the New Black), and Rainn Wilson (The Office, House of a 1000 Corpses, Cooties). The film was directed by Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure, National Treasure: Book of Secrets) from a screenplay written by Dean Georgaris (Paycheck, Tristan and Isolde), Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber (Red, Whiteout), based on the novel by Steve Alten (read our interview with the author here).
These posters are creative for sure! I’d be interested to see what my nutritional content would be… I am sure I’d be pleasing to sharks. Hence why I never go in the water! I’m looking forward to The Meg, how about you all? Let us know here! Stay tuned to PopHorror for all your news, reviews, trailers and more!
