If you missed out on the crazy shark action of The Meg (or want to watch the gigantic shark eat people over and over) you’ll get the chance soon. Warner Bros. has announced the 4K/blu-ray release of the film will arrive on November 13, 2018, with the digital version coming a smidge earlier on October 30th. Surprisingly, however, the bonus features are fairly light…
Go head-to-head with the largest prehistoric shark to ever exist when “The Meg” arrives on 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD Special Edition and Digital. Jason Statham (“Spy,” “The Fate of the Furious,” “The Expendables” films) and award-winning Chinese actress Li Bingbing (“Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “Forbidden Kingdom,” “The Message”) star in the science fiction action thriller “The Meg,” directed by Jon Turteltaub (the “National Treasure” movies).
A deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest part of the Pacific Ocean…with its crew trapped inside. With 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. But it will take their combined efforts to save the crew, and the ocean itself, from this seemingly unstoppable threat—a prehistoric 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. Thought to be extinct, the Meg turns out to be very much alive…and on the hunt.
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.
BLU-RAY AND DVD ELEMENTS
“The Meg” 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Special Edition contain the following special features:
· Chomp On This: The Making Of The Meg
· Creating The Beast
For a big special effects laden film, with plenty of real history to pull upon, it’s kind of crazy to see so little aside from the film on this release. Still, if you enjoyed the movie, it should be worth snagging next month. Will you be picking up The Meg?
