Scheduled to be released in cinemas on Aug 4, Meg 2:The Trench sees Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) leading a daring research team on a dive into the deepest depths of the ocean.

Five years after the original movie, Meg, the sequel is based on the second book in The Meg series by Steve Alten.

Meg 2 is said to be a larger-than-life thrill ride that supersizes the 2018 blockbuster and takes the action to higher heights and even greater depths with multiple massive Megs and so much more.

Jason Statham returns as Jonas Taylor, but his love interest will be missing as Li Bingbing is not returning as Suyin for the sequel.

The trailer for The Meg 2: The Trench was recently released and it's as wild as you'd expect it to be.

There are prehistoric creatures, an angry-looking T-Rex, and Jason Statham kicking a massive shark in the face. What more could you possibly want from a movie like this?

It sure looks like The Meg 2 is set to be bigger and better than the first.
