Has there actually been a truly spectacular shark based film since the original Jaws? Sharknado being the obvious exception of course!
Jason Statham is aiming to solve that problem this Summer with his new film, The Meg.
Why, The Meg? Well because it's short for Megalodon, the title of the absolutely humongous shark that Jason Statham is forced to do battle with.
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 Meg is released on the 10th May 2018.
