Action star Jason Statham (The Fate of the Furious, Transporter, The Expendables) plunges into perilous waters as he finds himself facing off against a terrifying sea monster in the new official trailer for the forthcoming giant shark thriller "The Meg."

"My God, it's a megalodon," says Statham with a shocked look on his face. "That thing's out there. We need to find it and kill it."

Statham plays Jonas Taylor, a deep-sea rescue diver who's been hired to protect an international team of oceanographers while on a research expedition to the ocean floor. But when the team suddenly runs into a monstrous 75-foot-long shark thought to be extinct, Jonas and his crew come to the same desperate conclusion -- kill it before it kills them. So, in other words, they're going to need a bigger boat.

In addition to Statham, the film boasts a cast of international actors that includes the likes of Li Bingbing (Transformers: Age of Extinction), Rainn Wilson (TV's The Office), Ruby Rose (xXx: Return of Xander Cage), Cliff Curtis (TV's Fear the Walking Dead), Winston Chao (Skiptrace), Robert Taylor (TV's Longmire), Olafur Darri Olafsson (TV's The Missing), and Masi Oka (TV's Hawaii Five-0).

Jon Turteltaub, the director of the "National Treasure" films, directs the science fiction-tinged action movie, which is based on the best-selling novel by Steve Alten.

"The Meg" roars into theaters August 10th.

synopsis:
In the film, a deep-sea submersible -- part of an international undersea observation program -- has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific ... with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), 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, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and 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.
