Entertainment Weekly has a new still photo from Warner Bros. Pictures‘ upcoming film The Meg, featuring one massive shark buffet. Check out The Meg photo below, and also read about how star Jason Statham swam with actual sharks!
“On the early stages of the prep, we took a trip to Fiji, and we went diving with some bull sharks,” says Statham. “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. You get anxiety when you’re on the boat, but once you get in the ocean, things take a very different turn. You get very relaxed, and when you’re in their environment, it’s quite a tranquil sort of thing, the anxiety goes away completely. It’s remarkable to experience. All of the fear — or the perceived fear — is done in your own head before you get down there with them. Once you’re swimming down there with all the other divers, it’s phenomenal. It’s one of the greatest experiences you could have, for me anyway. I’m a big SCUBA diver fanatic. Wherever I am in the world, if I get a chance to get in the ocean, I do.”
Statham is joined in the film by Li Bingbing (Transformers: Age of Extinction, Forbidden Kingdom), Cliff Curtis (Fear the Walking Dead), Rainn Wilson (The Office, Super), Ruby Rose (xXx: Return of Xander Cage), Winston Chao (Skiptrace, Kabali), Page Kennedy (TV’s Rush Hour), Jessica McNamee (The Vow), Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (The BFG), Robert Taylor (Focus, Longmire), Sophia Shuya Cai (Somewhere Only We Know), and Masi Oka (Hawaii Five-0, Heroes).
The Meg will debut in theaters on August 10, 2018.
