About Meg 2: The Trench Movie:

The film is based on the 1999 novel The Trench by Steve Alten.

Principal photography for the film began on February 4, 2022.

The film is set 4 years after the end of the first film’s events.

After reading the script, Steve Alten, author of the Meg novels, said it had a “dark tone” and “potential for an R rating.”

This movie is said to have a higher kill count than the first movie.

While speaking to entertainment site DenOfGeek in April 2021, director Ben Wheatley hinted that the film might see Jason Statham facing off against not one but several giant, prehistoric sharks.

Meg 2: The Trench had its world premiere at the Shanghai International Film Festival on June 9, 2023, and was released in the United States on August 4, 2023, by Warner Bros. Pictures.

The film received mixed reviews from critics and has become a box office success, grossing $395 million worldwide.
