We are as excited as everybody else for Jason Statham-starring creature feature The Meg (in cinemas Friday 10 Aug!), which is why we are posting about some new alternative posters for the giant shark-baiting blockbuster.
Not only will it somehow be the first Statham feature ever reviewed on Set The Tape, but director Jon Turteltaub’s Jaws-meets-Jurassic World adventure looks like a fantastically fun action romp. The three posters below provide a hint of the tone to expect from the sci-fi movies.
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.
We’ll have a review of The Meg for you on Monday – but in the meantime, take a look at the trailer below and let us know in the comments what you think!
