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..
Summer blockbuster season is almost upon us, and the monster shark movie "The Meg" is a new contender for big-budget hit. This new movie tells the story of an ancient prehistoric megaladon shark (hence "The Meg") terrorizing oceans once again. When the first full trailer debuted Monday, people were instantly enthralled by how bizarrely terrible but amazing "The Meg" looks. The movie stars Jason Statham ("Crank" and "Furious 7") and Rainn Wilson ("The Office"), Li Bingbing ("Transformers: Age of Extinction"), and Ruby Rose ("John Wick 2" and "Orange is the New Black"). And it looks like a mashup of everything movie audiences could need in a silly, fun popcorn film. The trailer shows off "Jaws"-inspired horror as the gigantic ocean predator stalks people (and a tiny dog) swimming in the ocean. But then Bobby Darin's feel-good "Beyond the Sea" starts playing and all bets are off..
