“Boys, oh boys… I think he’s come back for his noon feeding.” – Matt Hooper
On June 20, 1975 a thriller from a relatively unknown filmmaker was unleashed on unsuspecting theatre goers. That summer saw the birth of the blockbuster, the likes of which had never been seen before in cinemas.
Shark films are seemingly all the rage now. Last year was The Shallows, 1999 was the super fun Deep Blue Sea, this past weekend was the release of 47 Meters Down and in 2018 comes the intriguing Meg from Warner Bros. Pictures.
The science fiction action thriller Meg, directed by Jon Turteltaub, stars Jason Statham (“Spy,” “Furious 7,” “The Expendables” films) and Chinese actress Li Bingbing and is slated for release on March 2, 2018.

Jason Statham is one of those actors that film fans have grown to appreciate over the years. The man’s an action star almost in the vein of Stallone and Schwarzenegger, but he never seems to get caught in the trap of taking himself too seriously (If you haven’t yet, you need to check out his hilarious performance in Spy). He knows what audiences want to see out of him, and he embraces it wholeheartedly.
If you need any more evidence backing up that statement, then you need look no further than one of his upcoming films, Meg. The movie is set to be directed by Jon Turtletaub (National Treasure, and more importantly, 3 Ninjas), and is based on a Steve Alten novel of the same name.

It's capable of bringing down a T-Rex in prehistoric times, so just imagine the meal it could have with a modern-day menu. The massive Megalodon shark from Steve Alten's 1997 novel, Meg, will finally come to life on film via Warner Bros., but viewers now have a bit longer of a wait to see the ultimate apex predator make its splash on the big screen.
Multiple sources, including Variety, report that Meg will now be released in theaters (in 3D and IMAX) on August 10th, 2018, moving it several months from its previous March 2nd slot.
Directed by Jon Turteltaub (Last Vegas, National Treasure) and featuring a cast that includes Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Cliff Curtis, Rainn Wilson, and Ruby Rose, filming on Meg began last October in New Zealand, with shooting on the project also being done in China.

After being stuck in development for quite some time and going through the hands of several different filmmakers, the giant shark movie Meg is in the can and will be coming out next year. The movie is based on the 1997 novel of the same name, which was written by Steve Alten. The author recently opened up about the movie adaptation. And outside of praising what is on the way, he made it clear that the movie has a budget as big as the shark Jason Statham is going to be doing battle with.
Steve Alten recently spoke with iHorror about Meg and revealed that Warner Bros. apparently has a lot of confidence in what will essentially be a massive, action-packed B-movie. According to the author, Meg has a budget of $150 million and will have a lot of top-notch resources being poured into it, and it will apparently be pretty scary. »
