Summer is here in full-force, so it’s time to embrace big, dumb blockbusters. Like The Meg, a movie about Jason Statham fighting a Megalodon shark that just happens to not be extinct, somehow. I’m sure the film will explain this, but really, who cares? We don’t need answers. We just need to see Statham vs. shark. While you wait for The Meg to splash into theaters, watch a new The Meg TV spot below.

The only thing that can save the summer at this point is Jason Statham fighting a big-ass prehistoric shark. Thankfully, a new The Meg international trailer just swam online, bringing with it a ton of new footage.
Even if most summer movies turn out to disappoint this year, we can all take solace in knowing that, as the summer winds down, Jason Statham will battle a giant shark in The Meg. A new The Meg TV spot offers up some new footage, and confirms that this movie will probably be very dumb and very entertaining.

Jaws may have set the bar for killer shark movies, but even if nothing comes close to Steven Spielberg’s 1975 smash hit, shark films will never go out of style in Hollywood. Both The Shallows and 47 Meters Down performed well at the box office recently, and now we’re about to see The Meg, which pits a giant prehistoric beast against a cast that includes Jason Statham and Rainn Wilson.
Watch the first The Meg trailer below, and read about the experience of seeing the trailer in 4DX.

What lies beneath the waves? It’s a question all of us have when we go to the beach, but the characters in Warner Bros.’ upcoming The Meg aren’t going to like the answer. A 70-foot shark called a megalodon that was long thought to be extinct has surfaced again, and only a Navy diver played by Jason Statham can save the day.
