A new megalodon shark has surfaced in the ocean waters and it doesn’t take long for the massive shark to begin acting just like its predecessors as it begins a worldwide tour of aquatic terror.

Helmed by a married couple in the US Navy and powered by a KITT-inspired artificial intelligence system, the shark-shaped submarine battles it out against the Mega Shark leaving carnage, ship wrecks, and countless dead in their wake. As they study the patterns of the megalodon they realize it is headed on a crash course for Sydney where the ancient spawning grounds of the megalodons are and there is only one conclusion: it is expecting to find a mate there!
