The Meg (2018)
Bingbing Li: Suyin
Dr. Minway Zhang : Since 1875 we've all believed the Mariana Trench was the deepest place on Earth. I've had a theory that we think is the bottom might actually be a layer if hydrogen sulfide. Beneath that cloud, and a freezing cold thermocline there could be a completely different world.
Jack Morris : Wow.
Suyin : The Origin is about to see if my father is right. If there is warm water below, that means we're going to be the first to see it.
Jack Morris : And what if you're wrong?
Dr. Minway Zhang : Then you have wasted $1.3 billion.
Jack Morris : [laughs] You're kidding. He's kidding, right?
Suyin : This is what attacked us. A megalodon.
DJ : How big is that thing?
Suyin : Between 70 and 90 feet, 21 to 27 meters. The megalodon was the largest shark that ever existed. It feared nothing. it had no predators. it's jaws were stronger than any other animal, ever. The meg could bite a whale in half, crushing through the bones.
Dr. Minway Zhang : We are in uncharted territory. Until today, megalodons were thought to have been extinct for over 2 million years.
Suyin : Wrong.
Jaxx : A living fossil.
The Wall : That living fossil ate my friend.
Mac : Suyin, be advised. Evolution is now en route. Request you return to Mana One immediately.
Suyin : Negative. He can give us an escort on our way up.
Jonas Taylor : Tell her to get out of the way, Mac. More people means more risk and she's in way over her head.
Mac : Jonas, you just told her yourself.
Jonas Taylor : What?
Mac : The little green button on your intercom, that's for single channel communication.
Suyin : You couldn't bring Toshi back? Why not?
Jonas Taylor : He closed the hatch. He saved us.
Suyin : You left him. You left him because that's who you are. You are the guy who leaves people behind.
Jonas Taylor : You go that deep, you take your life in your hands. It was your choice to send them down.
DJ : You said it was impossible for it to get up here.
Suyin : It should have been.
Jaxx : You guys take a look at this. When the glider came up, the thermocline was intact, so it was one degree Celsius.
Mac : Yeah.
Jaxx : But a minute later, when the Evolution came up, the temperature increased by 25 degrees. A shark could come right through there. Twenty sharks for that matter.
Jonas Taylor : When the meg hit the Origin, it slammed into a thermal vent.
Dr. Minway Zhang : Those can release millions of gallons per minute. The heat from that vent cleared the path through the freezing cold layer.
Jack Morris : Are you saying we opened up a superhighway for giant sharks?
Mac : Not exactly. It seems it was a transitory event. The temperatures are returned to normal and the gap is closed.
DJ : Yeah. But not before a massive prehistoric killing machine decided to come up and say "Hi."
