The Meg’s story involves a group of scientists uncovering a host of new species at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. This involves a giant shark dubbed a Megalodon, a creature long thought to be extinct. Statham’s navy captain Jonas Taylor is called into the research station to help, but soon the monster has escaped and starts eating everything – and everyone – in its path, leading to a race against time to stop it.

Feast your eyes on the first trailer for The Meg, an upcoming film about the legendary megalodon—a giant species of shark that roamed the oceans over 2 million years ago. In The Meg, one of these mythic beasts is still alive, and the unenviable task of killing it falls to action star Jason Statham and a ragtag team of giant-shark-catchers that includes Dwight from The Office.

Big budget

Giant monster movies have made something of a comeback in recent years, thanks to the success of films like Pacific Rim and Kong: Skull Island. Warner Bros clearly has a lot of faith in the franchise potential of The Meg, since they granted it a healthy $150 million budget. There’s plenty of sequel material to be found in the novels, so if audiences take a shine to the movie, there could be semi-regular adventures with Statham’s gruff shark hunter.

So exciting to see how the movie is created especially when it’s all about huge shark and ocean. Of course, the shark is a ‘creation’ of production team but just take a look at this whale who seems to be one of the victims.

George Clooney was planned for Statham’s role

The Meg has been in development hell for more than a decade. It almost surfaced in 2006 at New Line, with George Clooney being eyed for the lead. But that never happened. Jon Turteltaub is directing the finished product, but Jan De Bont and Eli Roth were both attached. It’s a small miracle that this thing even got made.

“On the early stages of the prep, we took a trip to Fiji, and we went diving with some bull sharks,” says the British actor. “They hand-feed them and it’s a spectacular thing to see. These things are three meters in length, huge big things. There were 20 or 30 of these things, and they were hand-feeding [them] big tuna heads, and we got very, very close, and it was a spectacular moment. To swim in close proximity to a big, three-meter shark, is to be recommended to all and everyone.”

Jason Statham punching a shark

People really want to see Jason punching a massive shark, so much that they’ve promised to demand refunds if it doesn’t happen.
