Seriously???? This easily has the potential to do JURASSIC WORLD numbers as far as I'm concerned.. The FX for this so far look amazing and exactly how something like this would look if it were alive today... It doesn't get any better than this folks..:bravo:

I frequent a handful of movie forums and this is the only place I can find where people are actively talking about this movie. I guess BKB stanning hard for it explains it all.

I would bet money that that shot isn't in the film. It's very clearly a Photoshop job made so someone could slap it on their blog. And it's only been posted on three sites, none of which seem particularly reputable.

It's not photo shopped and is in fact from the movie which is damn near completed anyway so why this is so hard to believe is questionable.. And if this were photo shopped, then this would be the Best photo shop job I've ever seen and the individual responsible for it would be working in Hollywood..

Great read and one of the Great Cryptozoology accounts that's been around for awhile and seems pretty reputable involving the sighting of one of these sharks in 1918 Australia with a very detailed account from deep sea fishermen who wouldn't go back out into the ocean for days they said:

 

Quote

The Sightings


One of the mostfamed examples of a possible Megalodon sighting was retold by Australian naturalist David Stead. Though widely circulated, this account is generally regarded as of little value, because most of the claimants are anonymous: "In the year 1918 I recorded the sensation that had been caused among the "outside" crayfish men at Port Stephens, when, for several days, they refused to go to sea to their regular fishing grounds in the vicinity of Broughton Island. The men had been at work on the fishing grounds�which lie in deep water�when an immense shark of almost unbelievable proportions put in an appearance, lifting pot after pot containing many crayfishes, and taking, as the men said, "pots, mooring lines and all". These crayfish pots, it should be mentioned, were about 3 feet 6 inches [1.06 m] in diameter and frequently contained from two to three dozen good-sized crayfish each weighing several pounds. The men were all unanimous that this shark was something the like of which they had never dreamed of. In company with the local Fisheries Inspector I questioned many of the men very closely and they all agreed as to the gigantic stature of the beast. But the lengths they gave were, on the whole, absurd. I mention them, however, as an indication of the state of mind which this unusual giant had thrown them into. And bear in mind that these were men who were used to the sea and all sorts of weather, and all sorts of sharks as well. One of the crew said the shark was "three hundred feet [90 m] long at least"! Others said it was as long as the wharf on which we stood � about 115 feet [35 m]! They affirmed that the water "boiled" over a large space when the fish swam past. They were all familiar with whales, which they had often seen passing at sea, but this was a vast shark. They had seen its terrible head which was "at least as long as the roof on the wharf shed at Nelson Bay." Impossible, of course! But these were prosaic and rather stolid men, not given to 'fish stories' nor even to talking about their catches. Further, they knew that the person they were talking to (myself) had heard all the fish stories years before! One of the things that impressed me was that they all agreed as to the ghostly whitish color of the vast fish. The local Fisheries Inspector of the time, Mr Paton, agreed with me that it must have been something really gigantic to put these experienced men into such a state of fear and panic."

 

I would shit myself seeing something of that supposed size.. :bourne: Granted, that size description seems like quite a bit to swallow, but who knows?? Hell, 1918 was when this occurred..

If that's a finished effect, then the effects will be on par with Shark Attack 3: Megalodon, because that image is basically a picture of a great white shark pasted on a still image from the set.

If you're actually comparing that set pic to that movie scene above, then you clearly don't give a fuck about this movie one way or another cause that's bogus..

Yeah.. Bloody Disgusting which is a reputable horror site would use a photo shopped pic to sell a movie.. Sorry but YES, this pic is in fact from the movie and looks phenomenal like my username..

Yep.. That's real and looks fantastic.. How on earth can you say that this pic looks worse or on par with the FX from SHARK ATTACK 3???

wonder if this will be R rated

 

 

also wonder if this is a serious man vs nature movie like Jaws or The Ghost and the Darkness or The Edge or a tongue in cheek type of one like Anaconda and Deep Blue Sea or Lake Placid. Probably the latter 

 

The Ghost and the Darkness, what an underrated movie.

 

I'll see this either way, but with Jason Stathom and being a Chinese co-production, I expect it to be more tongue in cheek.

The Ghost and the Darkness was truly an Outstanding movie with a JAWS like vibe in it the way the lions snuck into camp in the middle of the night, complete with guards on watch and STILL managed to drag off someone and show it in the perspective of the lion doing it and the guy freaking out as it's happening, then mauled.. :what:

I've been looking forward to seeing an adaptation of the book ever since I read it in 2003, BKB. I've been looking forward to this movie for ages. I'm looking forward to seeing this (despite being burnt by how many false starts the movie had to being made - from Hollywood pictures to New Line Cinema) as well as hoping it gets sequels where, like in the books, its offspring cross paths with kronosaurs and other aquatic prehistoric beasties. I want to see the giant albino shark leap out of the water at a chopper. I'm just not going to go OH MY GOD THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST THING EVER.

 

I also know that was an image a goddamn fan made that was reblogged by the goddamn instagram account for Meg SO THAT'S WHY I CALLED IT PHOTOSHOP.

 

I know that the special effects in the final film will look light years beyond what they showed in Shark Attack 3. . . . which itself was pretty much a rip-off of Meg.
