The Meg Trailer

"That thing's out there. We need to find it and kill it." That is one big ass shark! Warner Bros has released the first official trailer for Jon Turtletaub's giant shark movie The Meg, a long-awaited adaptation of Steve Alten's novel, about a 70-foot long angry, prehistoric shark. The actual plot involves a group of researchers in a big deep-sea submersible stuck at the bottom of the ocean after being attacked, with Statham figuring out a plan to rescue them and get rid of the shark. The Meg co-stars Winston Chao, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Page Kennedy, Jessica McNamee, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Robert Taylor, Cliff Curtis, Shuya Sophia Cai, and Masi Oka. This movie has been in development for years and years, and finally got made after Gravity Pictures from China helped co-finance, and Turtletaub took at the helm. This looks like a horrifying, but still entertaining shark movie. I dig the old Sinatra song in the trailer, too.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Jon Turteltaub's The Meg, direct from WB's YouTube:

After escaping an attack by what he claims was by a 70-foot shark, Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) must confront his fears to save those trapped in a sunken submersible. "In The Meg, Jason Statham plays a diver tasked with rescuing the crew of a deep-sea submersible after it has been attacked by the titular creature, a 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon." The Meg is directed by American filmmaker Jon Turteltaub, director of movies including Think Big, 3 Ninjas, Cool Runnings, While You Were Sleeping, Phenomenon, Instinct, The Kid, National Treasure 1 & 2, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, and Last Vegas. The screenplay is written by Erich Hoeber, Jon Hoeber, James Vanderbilt, Belle Avery. Originally based on Steve Alten's novel "Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror". Warner Bros will release Jon Turtletaub's The Meg in theaters everywhere starting on August 10th, 2018 later this summer. First impression? Does that look crazy scary or what?

Steve Alten wrote the novels. Fun sci-fi. Kinda cheesy. He’s got a whole series.

Rated PG-13? I just want to see the damn thing eat people.

Ah looks so bad, it might be amazing. But let's be real...more likely a stinker.

I was very excited until they showed it near the crowds. I think it would work better if they kept the story more isolated. But, that opening shot was fantastic and I'm a sucker for Statham. Doubt I'll go to the theater for it though.

i can almost not believe i am saying this, but for what it is, that doesn't look *quite* so bad after all. looks like a good airplane in-flight choice!

Just fill it full of plastic bottles.

This looks pretty awful, but at least they're not taking it seriously. I'd put this in the "monster comedy" genre

It reminds me of pirahna. Less than serious homage to the classics but not without some good horror.

This looks so ultimately stupid that it is fun to watch!

Bobby Darin, not Frank... And this looks like it will be a lot of fun

So, size does matter. Again?

This could have been a great idea, Jason Statham in a shark movie... unfortunately they are showing the shark already and it's a somewhat stupid comedy. Pass.

BTW, when are people going to realize that a bazooka or a stick of dynamite would end these sharks pretty quick??

“...we’re gonna need a bigger bazooka or a stick of dynamite”.

I don't care. Even if the director's list is a 50/50 hit/miss selection (to me). Plus I haven' cared for a "shark" movie since Deep Blue Sea. And I only liked that because of the cast. I will definitely see this (someday) because of the cast.

I hate everything about this. I'll just go watch Jaws again.

Shut up, Meg!

This is is actually based on a book (a la “Jurassic Park”) also called “The Meg”. If anything, just bitch to Steve Alten, himself about the title.

Mark Brackney on Apr 14, 2018

There are some things that make this movie potentially GREAT. The premise for one. All of you "I'll go watch Jaws again" people need to get over your selves and remember two things.. How much you like the original Jaws movies, and that there is at least one generation that wasn't around for them (It's not all about you) and this could be theirs. Plus, that cast is GREAT, led by Statham... enough said. This movie also has the benefit of the latest CGI tech, 3D Tech and the beginning of the 4DX age. This movie in 4DX is going to be awesome. It's worth it just to see how they are going to kill this big sucker! LOL
