The Meg movie review

The Meg

Screenplay by Dean Georgaris, Jon Hoeber, Erich Hoeber
Starring Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, Cliff Curtis, Shuya Sophia Kai
Warner Bros. Pictures
Release date: August 10, 2018

The Meg was fine. It’s not awful in anyway. But it’s also not spectacular in any way. That is the real issue with the latest summer blockbuster shark movie. Any shark movie is going to inevitably compared to Jaws and that is not fair. Jaws was perfect, a classic of unparalleled status. Most of the immediate post-Jaws shark movies were rip-offs. Some have towed the line and were homages. Since Shark Week and the advent of cable TV, specifically the SYFY channel, shark movies essentially take two forms: thrillers that aim to provoke reactions of fear a la The Shallows (2016) and The Reef (2010), and the much more common go for absurdity and silliness like Deep Blue Sea (1999) or the any of the thousands of “shark movies” on cable such as the Sharknado franchise and Sharktopus. The Meg falls in the one place you don’t want to be… the middle.

The Meg

Summers may be full of those superhero movies and some fun comedies, but this one may belong to The Meg. The film, starring Jason Statham, sees the actor going up against a giant shark. No, literally. It’s a giant shark.

The shark is the once thought to be extinct megalodon, and it is so big that not only can it tip over a ship with ease, but it can swallow people whole. Check out the full trailer below.

MEG: A Novel of Deep Terror

The long in development giant shark movie MEG has found its female lead. It’s being reported that Sirens and The Vow star Jessica McNamee has joined the cast of the Warner Brothers title, which is based on the Steve Alten book MEG: A Novel of Deep Terror.

McNamee joins Jason Statham, who’s set for the male lead, and Fan Bingbing on the cast. The movie was set to be helmed by Hostel and Cabin Fever director Eli Roth, but he departed the project a handful of months ago. Roth left due to budget concerns after Warner Bros., coming off a rough year at the box office, wanted to pull things back a bit on the expected $100 million MEG budget. Now the movie will be made by Cool Runnings, National Treasure and its sequel, and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice director Jon Turteltaub.

Transformers fans sat through three movies without seeing the Dinobots make an appearance, but for the upcoming fourth one, Michael Bay is making sure that they will make one grand entrance.

There have been rumors as to what the title could really be, and Paramount has bought a few domain names to throw a few people off, but in the end they have settled for Age of Extinction.

Conversations with GoD: ‘The Forbidden Kingdom’ Co-Star Li Bing-Bing

Li Bing-BingEarlier this month, I spoke with The Forbidden Kingdom screenwriter John Fusco and his influences that helped forge the script. Now, I am lucky enough to speak with one of the film’s co-stars, Li Bing-Bing, who makes her Hollywood debut playing Ni Chang, better known as The Bride With White Hair.

Geeks Of Doom: Thank you for taking some time today to answer some questions about your current film, The Forbidden Kingdom which is your first English language film, after ten years of acting in Hong Kong cinema. Did you have any trouble adapting to an American production work schedule?

Li Bing-Bing: I was very lucky to be part of The Forbidden Kingdom. The Forbidden Kingdom has a fantastic filmmaking team with director Rob Minkoff, cinematographer Peter Pau, martial arts choreographer Yuen Woo-Ping, and Jet Li and Jackie as world class martial artists and teachers. Everyone was very professional. The Forbidden Kingdom cast and crew also had a great team spirit attitude — they had high expectation for all cast members, no matter that their backgrounds maybe. Everyone had the same treatment and everyone was thoughtful as well. I quickly became accustomed to the U.S. filmmaking culture and learned a lot from the experience.
