Discovery’s “Shark Week” has just begun, so if you were hoping for some well-timed promotion for Jon Turteltaub’s upcoming flick The Meg this week, we’ve got you covered!
Not only do we have an international featurette for you today, which features new footage both from the film and from behind the scenes, but we’ve also got *another* kickass poster.
Dive in below!
In the film, swimming into theaters on August 10, 2018:
“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.”
