A group of scientists exploring the Marianas Trench encounter the largest marine predator that has ever existed – the Megalodon.
Previously thought to be extinct, a massive creature attacks a deep-sea submersible, leaving it disabled and trapping the crew at the bottom of the Pacific. With time running out, a visionary oceanographer recruits rescue diver Jonas Taylor to save the crew and the sea itself from an unimaginable threat — a 75-foot-long prehistoric shark known as the Megalodon.

Meg 2: The Trench (2023)
A deep-sea submersible filled with an international research crew lies disabled at the bottom of the Pacific after having been attacked by a massive shark previously thought to be extinct. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao) to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now he must risk his own life to save everyone trapped below…bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time!
One former cast member from The Meg won’t be coming back for its sequel, sparking curiosity about why Li Bingbing isn’t returning as oceanographer Suyin for Meg 2: The Trench. Directed by Ben Wheatley, Meg 2 is based on a science-fiction novel The Trench by Steve Alten and will pick up after the events of the first movie, in which a research team had a brush with a Megalodon thought to have been extinct for thousands of years. In the second installment, Jason Statham’s Jonas Taylor leads a new research team to brave the deepest and darkest depths of the ocean to take on more prehistoric predators.
