Thought to be extinct, the Meg turns out to be very much alive … and on the hunt.
A deep-sea submersible that was involved in an international undersea observation program, attacked by a massive creature now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest part of the Pacific Ocean. Its crew are trapped inside it, hoping to be rescued.
Jason Statham (“Spy,” “The Fate of the Furious,” “The Expendables” films) and award-winning Chinese actress Li Bingbing (“Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “Forbidden Kingdom,” “The Message”) star in the science fiction action thriller “The Meg,” directed by Jon Turteltaub (the “National Treasure” movies).
With time running out, former deep-sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is drawn out of self-imposed exile by a visionary Chinese oceanographer, Dr. Zhang (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter, Suyin (Li Bingbing), who thinks she can rescue the crew on her own.
It will take their combined efforts to save the crew, and the ocean itself, from this seemingly unstoppable threat – a prehistoric 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon.
Five years before, Jonas had encountered this same terrifying creature, but no one had believed him. Now, teamed with Suyin, Jonas must confront his fears and risk his own life to return to the ocean depths…bringing him face to face once more with the apex predator of all time.
