The sequel to The Meg Giant Shark will be seen in August.
The trailer for The Meg 2: The Trench, released a week earlier, hinted that it would be bloodier than the first film. Lead actor Jason Statham has yet again been disappointed, as Warner Bros. The studio doesn’t take any risks. The age range for The Meg sequel is not the expected K16, but K12 is again available.
This is confirmed by, among others, IMDb, according to which Meg 2 is rated PG-13 in the United States, matching our K12 label.
The sequel is directed by Ben Wheatley, who typically makes genre films with smaller budgets. His earlier films, for example, Kill List, High-Rise, A Field in England and In the Earth are really rough work.

Meg 2 is written by John Hoeber, Erich Hoeber and Dean Georgaris.
In addition to Statham, the film also stars Wu Jing, Sienna Guillory, Cliff Curtis, Skyler Samuels, Paige Kennedy, Shuya Sophia Cai, and Sergio Parisse-Menchetta.
The first film, known in Finland as Megalodon, received only 1½ stars in a review by Muropacket and said the following about it:
“Megalodon isn’t stupid enough and not serious enough to be a giant monster horror movie. As a version for kids, the CGI shark mostly makes the adult viewer yawn, at least”.
Review: Megalodon is a giant shark flick that’s way too bloodthirsty — no wonder Jason Statham barked at his own movie
The Meg 2: The Trench will premiere on August 4.
