The Meg Author Responds To Fans Who Are Disgruntled Over The Trailer

Earlier this week, Warner Bros. uncaged the first trailer for Jon Turteltaub’s The Meg. Scheduled for release towards the end of the blockbuster season, the very thought of watching Jason Statham go toe-to-toe with a prehistoric super-shark on a blistering summer night is enough to get a cinephile perspiring.

An adaptation of Steve Alten’s Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror, Turteltaub’s rendition, like most book-to-film translations, will be an experience that differs, if only slightly, from the adventure found on the pages written by the New York Times Bestselling author.

While the trailer for The Meg received mostly positive feedback, fans of Alten’s source material aren’t too pleased with Warner Bros.’ deviations from the book. They’re so exasperated, in fact, that the author’s now penned an extensive Facebook post to address those who’ve been grousing about the “few minutes of trailers.”

In his open letter,

The Meg International Trailer Has Scary New Shark Footage

Sometime during the night, Warner Bros. unleashed the savage first trailer for The Meg. And it's a lot of fun for lovers of shark mayhem. There have been an infinite number of goofy great white flicks released in the past decade, mostly crafted for the Syfy channel. These Z grade schlock fests are mindlessly entertaining and often a blast. Now comes one of these movies made on a decent budget with a pretty kickass cast and some actual thought put into its execution. The results look absolutely delicious. As in an ocean full of Chinese tourists delicious. Now, we get a second trailer tailor made for those Chinese tourists. And it adds in some scary new megalodon footage we didn't get to see the first time around.

This latest trailer showcases how truly jaw-dropping and scary this thriller is going to be in IMAX 3D. The Meg is what the format was made for.

The first trailer for Warner Bros.' shark-based thriller The Meg arrived on our shores last night in terrifying fashion.

You're Gonna Need A Much Bigger Boat in the First Trailer for The Meg

  • Cinelinx
A giant shark movie is getting the big-budget Hollywood treatment and it shows in the ferocious first trailer for The Meg! Check it out!

There was a time when audiences couldn't get enough of Shark Movies. The Jaws franchise was the first to really set the standard for the genre, but as with most things too much of a good thing can get old quick. After Jaws 1 & 2, the franchise began taking very off-kilter directions, causing the genre to lie dormant for some time. Afterward, Sci-Fi Channel (now Syfy) took hold of the Shark Film genre and ran with it, airing such films as the Mega Shark series and the iconic Sharknado franchise.

However, since movies like The Shallows and 47 Meters Down have come out, the genre has seen a revival. So, naturally, it's time for the genre to get a bit outlandish. The first trailer for Jason Statham's giant shark film,

‘The Meg’ Trailer: Jason Statham Battles History’s Biggest Shark

‘The Meg’ Trailer: Jason Statham Battles History’s Biggest Shark
Shark movies — these days, they tend to appeal to a certain niche viewer, one who watched “Shark Week” and thought, “I want that, but in a movie theater.” “The Meg,” starring Jason Statham, however, may be able to move beyond that viewer base with its hint at a slightly more meta take on the shark film.

Featuring the just-go-with-it premise that the prehistoric megalodon did not, in fact, go extinct around 2 million years ago, and has instead been discovered off the coast of China, “The Meg” is based on Steve Alten’s 1997 book, “The Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror.”

The trailer, cut to a tone-setting “Beyond the Sea” and with the tagline “Chomp on this,” begins with the occupants of an underwater marine research vessel encountering the meg, and proceeds to preview the inevitable movement of the giant shark towards human-infested beaches, with Statham filling the role of researcher-turned-lead-shark-fighter.
