The Meg (2018) – Official trailer, release date, synopsis and cast

An official trailer has been released for the action sci-fi movie The Meg, starring Jason Statham and Li Bingbing.

Based on the 1997 novel by Steve Alten, according to the official synopsis — A deep-sea submersible which is 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.

Directed by Jon Turteltaub, the film will also star Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, Page Kennedy, Jessica McNamee, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Robert Taylor, Cliff Curtis, Sophia Shuya Cai and Masi Oka.

It is scheduled to be released in theaters on August 10th, 2018.
