Another new TV spot for the giant shark film, The Meg, has been released, and it is filled with more ginormous sharky goodness. We’ve all seen Jason Statham in plenty of fights, but not against sharks of unusual size. One way to get me to watch a movie is to tell me that the basic plot of the film involves Jason Statham doing battle with a giant prehistoric shark, on that premise alone, I’m in. I’m not expecting an Oscar worthy film, I’m expecting to watch Statham engage in over-the-top action against a giant shark. I know what I’m getting going in, which can make films like this a lot of fun.

You can check out an official synopsis for the film below.

“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.”

The Meg is directed by John Turteltaub and was written co-written by brothers Jon and Erich Hoeber along with Dean Georgaris. The film is based off a Steve Alten novel of the same name.

The Meg is released August 20.
