The Meg trailer: Jason Statham takes on a shark in new action movie

Ever wanted to watch Jason Statham take on a gigantic, extinct species of shark? Well, you’re in luck as the first trailer for The Meg has landed, showcasing what’s basically an updated version of Jaws with much (much) more CGI. 

 “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,” reads the synopsis. 

Luckily, expert deep-sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (the Stath) has been called in to save the crew “and the ocean itself” from the pre-historic 75-foot-long beast, the Megalodon (hence the name of the movie).

Cast members include Rainn Wilson (The Office), Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black), Winston Chao, and Li Bingbing, among many more. Jon Turteltaub – best known for helming National Treasure – will produce the movie. 

Meanwhile, the background dancer turned leading actor, Statham, recently appeared in The Fate of the Furious/Fast and Furious 8, and will feature in the spin-off Hobbs and Shaw alongside The Rock.

 The Meg reaches cinemas 10 August.
