Cape Town – If you were going to face off with a giant pre-historic shark who better to deal with it than action star Jason Statham. 

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

In The Meg a deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific with its crew trapped inside.

With time running out Taylor is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: A pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon.  

What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.


The Meg releases in cinemas on Friday, 10 August.
