The Meg is a pretty highly anticipated movie, as its about a giant shark – and who doesn’t love sharks? It’s also PG-13, so adults can take their kids to see it. If you’re into that sort of thing. If you’re looking for more footage of said giant shark, you’re in luck, as a new foreign trailer has hit the internet, and it features plenty of Giant Shark vs. Jason Statham!
Statham actually swam with real sharks to prepare for the role, saying:
“On the early stages of the prep, we took a trip to Fiji, and we went diving with some bull sharks. They hand-feed them and it’s a spectacular thing to see. These things are three meters in length, huge big things. There were 20 or 30 of these things, and they were hand-feeding (them) big tuna heads, and we got very, very close, and it was a spectacular moment. To swim in close proximity to a big, three-meter shark, is to be recommended to all and everyone.”
In a separate interview, the actor said:
“I mean, who doesn’t want to watch a movie about the biggest shark that’s ever existed? And I get to be in it? This is as good as it gets.”
He’s got a point, as the movie essentially just markets itself. It doesn’t even have to get good reviews, as people will still go see this thing. The Meg hits theaters on August 10th.
