The Latest Shark Movie
“The meg” makes a strong debut with a $44.5 Million opening, the long waited movie actually breaks expectations and surpass movies like “Ready Player One” and “Ocean’s 8”.
But who is really surprised? We were entranced by Jaws and we like Shark Tank, what’s to stop us from liking something else with sharks involved.
This makes this movie one of the best films in terms of the opening of Warner Brothers. While the movie was acclaimed by fans there was a feeling of uncertainty on how well this movie was going to sell. Wanting to cash in on the success of shark’s thriller, the budget for this movie was of an incredible $130 Million.
While the film has not paid out just yet with that opening it will surely even make a good amount of profit for the investors.
The movie had a great marketing campaign, with great advertisements that might have led to this opening success.
At least that is what the head of Warner Brother’s domestic distribution Jeff Goldstein thinks, he also mentioned in an interview that he thinks that “the movie is “It’s just good popcorn entertainment that didn’t take itself too seriously, It’s silly, it’s fun, and it lets audiences have a good time.” Meaning that movie was made for the sheer and simple enjoyment of the public.
What is it?
“The meg” is a science fiction thriller film directed by Jon Turteltaub based on Steve Alten’s hit book “Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror”. This movie counts a few superstars, it includes the acting of Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, Cliff Curtis and a few more.
The movie’s topic begins in the deepest place on the planet, even deeper than the Mariana Trench itself, a group of researchers is on an expedition as part of an international underwater surveillance program. Thus, they make the discovery of their lives while at the same time being in grave danger.
After its submarine was attacked by a gigantic creature that was believed to be extinct, the crew was trapped inside the damaged submarine.
Time seems to be running out for Suyin (Li Bingbing) and his father, the visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), so he decides, despite his daughter’s opposition, to hire deep-sea rescue specialist Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham), who will be on a mission to save the trapped team and defeat the unstoppable threat hiding in the ocean: the deadly 23-metre prehistoric shark predecessor of the great white shark, known as Megadolon.
What no one can imagine, though, is that Taylor had already faced this dangerous predator in the past.
Now, as a team with Suyin, he will have to risk his life and face his fears to accomplish his task before it is too late.
