This is going to be the perfect summer movie. You can tell by "The Meg" trailer and posters so far, emphasizing the massive shark antagonist with a series of shameless puns.
The summer heat melts all shame!
"The Meg" -- which is short for Megalodon -- stars Jason Statham, Rainn Wilson, Li Bingbing, Cliff Curtis, Ruby Rose, Winston Chad, and Masi Oka. The first trailer and poster came out in April, teasing that "The Meg" will be "pleased to eat you" on August 10.
Now another cheeky poster is here, emphasizing the extra wide jaws of the real star:
Here's the official synopsis:
"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."
Jason Statham swam with real sharks to prepare for the movie, which he called "one of the greatest experiences you could have." But you may not want to have a similar experience after watching this movie.
Here's the official trailer, in case you missed it back in April:Check out the movie in theaters August 10. The other poster is shown below next to more info on the movie.
