The Meg is a 2018 Apelles Entertainment, Di Bonaventura Pictures, Flagship Entertainment. is scheduled to be released on August 10, 2018.
What happens when a gigantic prehistoric animal supposedly extinct appears in the ocean? Obviously humanity begins to be devoured as if they were mere petit bouche.
That is the basis of the proposal of The Meg, an action film that does not hide the foolishness of its proposal and will be focused on the attack of a giant monster.
Starring Jason Statham, who will play a former diver who must return to the water after encountering this creature in the past, the story of this blockbuster will be developed in an Asian environment where you have to rescue a mission trapped at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. All this because, look at you, your production was possible thanks to Chinese investors.
Based on the sudden appearance of a carcharodon megalodon, the following trailer reveals some new sequences of this production directed by Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure).
Jason Statham is, with permission from Dwayne Johnson, the king of action cinema of the new century. With his sagas of 'Transporter', 'Los Mercernarios' and 'Fast & Furious', it has become a claim for the box office. Not in vain, his nearly 30 films have collected more than $ 5 trillion, which is not bad (although The Rock is close to doubling that number and exceeding 10 billion). The actor, moreover, not only makes action films, but has also learned to laugh at himself, as in the hilarious "Spies" with Melissa McCarthy and directed by Paul Feig.
When his new project, 'Megalodon' came to light, we all thought it would be a joke. How would Statham come out in a movie with such a title? I was going to do? Hitting a Jurassic megatiburon? It sounded more like a production of Asylum (the producer behind the saga 'Sharknado') than a serious project. But we were wrong. The movie is real. So real that not only has a trailer but a new poster and release date.
The film, now renamed The Meg, tells the story of a group of researchers who find a completely new world where it is possible to inhabit unimaginable marine species. Soon they will see with their own eyes a gigantic creature that was believed to be extinct. It is the Megalodon, which existed approximately between 19.8 and 2.6 million years ago, during the Cenozoic. The crew of this expedition will then be in serious danger. Risking his own life to kill the world's biggest predator, the deadly Megalodon, the predecessor of the great white shark, deep-sea diver Jonas Taylor will launch a mission to rescue them before it's too late.
