The time has come for the great Jason Statham to fulfill his destiny! Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first official trailer for their upcoming film The Meg starring Jason Statham as a guy ready to kick a big ass shark's ass!
Statham is joined in the film by Li Bingbing (Transformers: Age of Extinction, Forbidden Kingdom), Cliff Curtis (Fear the Walking Dead), Rainn Wilson (The Office, Super), Ruby Rose (xXx: Return of Xander Cage), Winston Chao (Skiptrace, Kabali), Page Kennedy (TV’s Rush Hour), Jessica McNamee (The Vow), Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (The BFG), Robert Taylor (Focus, Longmire), Sophia Shuya Cai (Somewhere Only We Know), and Masi Oka (Hawaii Five-0, Heroes).
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.
John Turteltaub (National Treasure) is directing the film from a screenplay by Dean Georgaris and Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber, based on the New York Times best-selling book by Steve Alten.
The Meg will debut in theaters on August 10, 2018.
