You can swim but you can’t hide. Jaws may have originated the shark-based thriller, but The Meg looks to take it to the next level — I mean, not in terms of overall quality, but at the very least in pure size. In this film, Jason Statham will be going up against the largest shark that’s ever existed — a megalodon.

Now, in a new TV spot for the ridiculous film, we get some more shots of the terrifying sea-dweller. It may not be a classic, but I’m sure this will be the type of film to benefit from 3D sales and a home release, where it can be watched alongside a six pack and a group of friends.

Below is the official synopsis for The Meg:

“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.”
