The Meg trailer pits Jason Statham against a giant shark

Warner Bros. Pictures has released for online viewing the first trailer for “The Meg,” director Jon Turteltaub’s science-fiction action thriller that pits Jason Statham against a prehistoric megalodon. Place your bets and check out the video in the player above!

Joining Statham in the cast of “The Meg” are Li BingbingRuby Rose, Winston Chao, Rainn Wilson, Robert Taylor, Cliff Curtis and Jessica McNamee.

“The Meg” begins when a deep-sea submersible — part of an international undersea observation program — is attacked by a massive creature previously thought to be extinct, leaving the submarine disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific and its crew trapped inside. Visionary Chinese oceanographer Dr. Zhang (Chao) recruits deep-sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Statham) to save the crew — and the ocean itself — from this unstoppable threat: a prehistoric 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. Years before, Taylor encountered this same terrifying creature, and now, teamed with Zhang’s daughter Suyin (Bingbing), Taylor must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below.

Look for “The Meg” to hit the big screen August 10.

In addition to the trailer, the studio has released a first poster for “The Meg,” which you can check out below:
