The Meg | Aug 10 2018 | WB-China co-production | IMAX 3D | Jon Turteltaub directing. Jason Statham fights a shark. Li Bingbing replaces Fan Bingbing.

Recommended Posts

I remember reading about this movie like...late 1990s?  Amazed it's actually happening.

 

I hope Statham round house kicks the shark.  I hope Fan BingBing has a proper large role too.

I've been wanting this movie to be made for years.  I guess it's finally time for me to read the book.  I'm not sure why Roth left but Turtletaub is good as well.  I hope they do this right.  Shark movies are awesome and they are so much fun.

Im guessing the studio finally got around to watch his movies.

 

And I like Roth!  But...yeah.  Not at that price.

Well, there are tons of directors who were given huge budgets and they had no real experience with big budgets...Treverrow, Whedon for Avengers, The Wachowskis when they did the Matrix....Spielberg when he did Jaws and you can keep going down the list.  Roth is a fine director imo and I think he could have done something interesting with this film.

Yeah well, I'm just dealing with the fact I was excited to see Roth do this.  Cause I was.  So, I just put on my "if I were a Hollywood suit!" Hat and feel...better?

Turtletaub is a much safer bet for a studio. Probably ensures the movie feels like other shark-hunting/hunter movies, but I guess that's not horrible either. 

 

If Statham doesn't kick the shark, it's a lost opportunity, though.

Unless they change the date

 

It will depend on PREDATOR's rating. But even if it ends up rated R, I think it will still be affected.

Roth would've made a more interesting movie, Im sure.  But oh well.

But since we aren't getting Roth...Turteltaub, just hire Nic Cage.  For something, anything, let him voice the fucking shark.  And make the Sharks face look like Nic Cage.

 

Seriously these are good ideas.

I have incredibly high hopes for this, but that ending in the Novel under no circumstances can be used in the movie.. When you read the Novel, you'll know what I'm talking about.. Also, I'm hoping they actually spend some $$$$ on this given that pretty much, the whole movie will be CGI right down to the water.. At least 300M Should be spent on this to make it look good and separate it from the SyFy Channel Schlock..

I am on Team PREDATOR if they both stick to same release date.

 

We've already seen a PREDATOR Reboot as well as 2 other PREDATOR movies, even if they are older movies, but MEG?? This is 20 Years in the Making and it's either that or studios are afraid to make a Giant Shark movie for fear of everyone bagging on it cause of JAWS.. Thank God  we have a studio willing to give this a shot, but they have to take it seriously and when the trailer or teaser comes, they shouldn't show us what it looks like to maintain element of surprise like JAWS did and how you never saw the shark til later in the movie... What you don't see or can't see scares you the most..

I wonder if they're still going with the FX House used when they made Ron Howards, "IN THE HEART OF THE SEA" and how good the Moby Dick FX looked, how real they looked cause if so, that would make me a happy camper..

And if I could have a scene like this in the upcoming movie, that would also make me happy as well..
