‘The Meg’ Goes Digital in October
Jason Statham is coming for you Halloween
The summer blockbuster “The Meg” will release on Digital HD this month, followed by a 4K UHD, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD release on November 13th. Jason Statham and Li Bingbing star in the sci-fi shark thriller, from Warner Bros. Pictures, which was directed by Jon Turteltaub (the “National Treasure” movies).
As we mentioned before, “The Meg” was a monster hit when it debuted in theaters in August. The film had a $45M opening weekend and went on to make over $525M worldwide.
In the story, part of an international observation program has been attacked by a massive creature and now lies disabled at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. With the crew trapped inside and time running out, former deep-sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is drawn out of self-imposed exile by a visionary Chinese oceanographer, Dr. Zhang (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter, Suyin (Li Bingbing), who thinks she can rescue the crew on her own. Five years before, Jonas had encountered this same terrifying creature, but no one had believed him. Now, teamed with Suyin, Jonas must confront his fears and risk his own life to return to the ocean depths…bringing him face-to-face once more with the apex predator of all time.
Joining Statham and Bingbing in the cast are Rainn Wilson (TV’s “The Office”), Ruby Rose (“John Wick: Chapter 2,” TV’s “Orange is the New Black”), Winston Chao (“Skiptrace,” “Kabali”), Page Kennedy (TV’s “Rush Hour”), Jessica McNamee (“Battle of the Sexes,” TV’s “Sirens”), Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (“The BFG,” upcoming “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”), Robert Taylor (“Kong: Skull Island,” TV’s “Longmire”), Sophia Cai (“Somewhere Only We Know”), Masi Oka (TV’s “Hawaii Five-0,” TV’s “Heroes”) and Cliff Curtis (“The Dark Horse,” TV’s “Fear the Walking Dead”).
Turteltaub directed the film from a screenplay by Dean Georgaris and Jon and Erich Hoeber, based on the best-selling novel “MEG” by Steve Alten. Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Belle Avery and Colin Wilson produced the film, with Gerald R. Molen, Wei Jang, Randy Greenberg, Catherine Xujun Ying, Chantal Nong and Barrie M. Osborne serving as executive producers.
