It’s almost Christmas, and with that, what better day is there to release an image for a prehistoric shark flick? Don’t worry, Empire has your back, and in their exclusive first look, we get our first look at what to expect from the upcoming action flick, Meg.


Oh yeah. That’s the stuff.

Those five people who loved Deep Blue Sea will be able to eat their hearts out, and the rest of us will appreciate just how much better that shark looks than any of the sharks in Deep Blue Sea.

The outlet also had a chance to speak with star Jason Statham, where he shared a bit about his actual role in the film.

“I play a former navy captain and diver. and I get hired to rescue a team of scientists who are trapped at the bottom of the sea in their research station by a giant shark. Then all hell breaks loose.”

I think it goes without saying that any pitch that ends with “all hell breaks loose” is probably worth your time. Given Statham’s background in ridiculous action flicks, Meg looks to be right up his alley. With its mix of the ridiculous and overly-serious, this could be a good time in the theaters.

    Shut up Meg.

  • This will be right up the street of all those who think Meg’s might still be alive. The rest of us will likely roll our eyes a lot. Why is there only 1 shark film that’s ever been done well? The Shallows was sooooo bad. There’s a dead whale corpse I.e free easy food. And yet the shark ignores this too circle a human on a tiny rock. Nooooooo!

      • She wouldn’t feed a a Lemon Shark. It could have actually been done well if they had represented her fear of trying to swim back more than the ever watchful Shark. Imagine the strength it would take to swim for shore. The shark could have beeen miles away and you wouldn’t know.

      Hey… every time the shark brought it up, the director said …”follow the script…!!!”

      Blame the “story telling”…

    Great White or Meg White? #WhiteStripes

    • Science actually has no idea about the colouring of carcharias megalodon. Since it hunted in a different way from it’s descendant. Might not have been white at the bottom?
