The Meg is a horror feature about the Megalodon. This prehistoric monster roamed seas millions of years ago. It reached lengths of 60 to 70 feet. In The Meg, an underwater research crew is trapped at the bottom of an undersea trench as a Megalodon swims above. This picture, which was co-produced by at least one Chinese company, stars: Bingbing Li (Resident Evil: Retribution), Jason Statham (Crank), Jessica NcNamee and Ruby Rose.
