Warner Boss shared the first trailer for the sequel ahead of Meg 2's 2023 release date.
The trailer "The Trench," released on May 8, started by capturing audiences with a whole new wave of deep-sea action and horror proceeding back 65 million years to a time when one species ruled the world, not dinosaurs but the mighty megalodon.
The new movie trailer Meg 2 reveals that once again, Statham's Jonas Taylor will be leading a fearless research team on an adventurous dive 25,000 feet deep into the Mariana Trench, where increased aquatic activity is being discovered.
It reveals Jason Statham playing the role of a disgruntled rescue diver Jonas Taylor again facing off against the massive homicide megalodon and a host of other primitive horrors. Statham is teamed with fellow returning actor Cliff Curtis who played James "Mac" Mackrides, and Page Kennedy as the DJ, all of whom are joined by newcomers Shuya Sophia Cai, Skyler Samuels, Able Wanamakok, and Sienna Guillory.
Earlier in April, audiences at CinemaCon were invited to an early look at Meg 2: The Trench's trailer, and reports came out to describe some of the wilder aspects of the movie. It was reported that the action-filled trailer begins with an obturate look at the antique food chain, where small reptiles are being seized by a bigger one, who in turn is taken by the always-impressive cruel and oppressive cruel and oppressive King of the Lizards, a Tyrannosaurus. With T-Rex out of his depth this time, Meg propounds itself as the more enormous, hungrier monster.
According to CinemaBlend, this led to scenes of Statham guiding his team through the present-day action, beginning with a trip into an unexplored trench where other ferocious creatures await.
More Aquatic Monsters
Meg 2:The Trench, the hotly anticipated sequel to the successful 2018 film, starred Statham in a battle of life and death against the prehistoric shark, all set in the background of a deep sea rescue mission. The storyline continues with more scary and murderous aquatic monsters.
According to Mashable, Meg 2 trailer's prologue also indicates it will feature some additional underwater prehistoric beasts, such as the Kronosaurus, taking another page out of Steve Alten's source material, the 1999 novel The Trench.
Just as The Meg was based on A Novel of Deep Terror by Steve Alten's 1997 novel Meg 2: The Trench is also cited in Alten's 1999 sequel, simply titled The Trench.
