First Trailer: Jason Statham In “The Meg”

The first trailer for the giant prehistoric shark film “The Meg,” starring Jason Statham, has arrived. Li Bingbing, Cliff Curtis, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Robert Taylor, Jessica McNamee, Masi Oka and Winston Chao co-star.

In the film a deep-sea submersible, part of an international undersea observation program, has been attacked by a massive creature 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.

John Turteltaub is directing the film from a script by Dean Georgaris, Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber. “The Meg” opens August 10th.
