Los Angeles - Action man Jason Statham's latest movie The Meg sees him go head to head with a 70 foot shark. 

While the size of the monster in this movie might be the frightening bit, Jason doesn't really have a problem with sharks.

In this year's shark movie Jason plays expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor.

Three hundred km off the Chinese coast, a 22 metre long prehistoric shark called Megalodon, thought to be long extinct, rises from the depths of the ocean and attacks a research submersible, leaving it's crew stranded.

Diver Jonas Taylor (Statham) - who has encountered the monster before - is called into action to help rescue the crew and stop the monster before it attacks the mainland and eats those who are offshore.

The Meg opens in SA cinemas on Friday, 10 August.
