THE MEG Trailer Pits Jason Statham Against a Giant Shark

THE MEG Trailer Pits Jason Statham Against a Giant Shark

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, there’s a massive prehistoric shark who makes Jaws look like a guppy. Two decades after its release, Steve Alten’s hit novel, Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror, is coming to the big screen. Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for The Meg, which puts Jason Statham up against a 75-foot-long Megalodon shark. And it’s one of the rare foes that Statham can’t simply punch, kick, or crash a car into!

In The Meg, Statham is portraying a rescue diver named Jonas Taylor, a man who first encountered the giant shark years before, and narrowly escaped with his life. Now, the Megalodon is circling an undersea observation program, and it’s more than willing to try to make a meal out of the survivors trapped inside. Taylor is going to get his rematch with the Meg whether he wants to or not, but at least he will have some backup from Suyin (Li Bingbing) and her father, Dr. Minway Zhang (Winston Chao).

The trailer offers up a glimpse at the carnage to come, as the Meg makes its way to a beach and prepares to snack on the unfortunate souls in the water. Even the dog in this trailer knows better than to swim towards the Meg. But it looks like Taylor is going to have to take the fight directly to the Megalodon for any chance to survive the beast. And to quote Jaws: The Revenge, “this time, it’s personal!”

The Meg was directed by Jon Turteltaub, and it will swim into theaters on Friday, August 10.
