“What’s that?” “There’s a monster outside.” In ‘The Meg’ a deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature. Previously thought to be extinct, it now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific…with its crew trapped inside. “A living fossil thought to be extinct over 2 million years.”
“What you people discovered is bigger than we ever thought possible.” “How big is that thing?” “It was the largest shark that ever existed.” With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese 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.
“That thing’s out there. We need to find it and kill it.” What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature in the unexplored recesses of the Mariana Trench that forced him to abort his mission and abandon half his crew. Now he must confront his fears to save those trapped in a sunken submersible.
Based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Steve Alten Jason Statham and award-winning Chinese actress Li Bingbing star in the science fiction action thriller ‘The Meg,’ directed by Jon Turteltaub from a screenplay by Dean Georgaris and Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber.
