I can see this being a guilty pleasure of mine like the deep blue sea

This movie is meant to be cheesy so dont go in expecting a serious film. Havent seen it yet but i think its more in the vein of Piranha than anything else.

It's a "12A" certificate so maybe not quite in the same vein as any of the PIRANHA films although the poster idea would be fun.

As for the artwork: would be fun to see aJAWS or PIRANHA homage . . .

. . . and re: tooth size - just to keep the JURASSIC PARK reference going (Meg vs. Rexy):-

As for my favourite shark film - even though a shark is rarely seen - it's got to be OPEN WATER

Ok, so Jaws is untouchable, but I don't understand why they have to turn these films cheesy? I haven't yet seen The Meg but when I first saw snippets I had high hopes that this film could be something special.
Parts of the trailer look decent and parts look silly. Why can't they go down the 'serious' route? I mean, looking back on Jaws there are some silly moments in there of course but it's stood the test of time because of when it was made.
Nothing like that will happen now. We won't remember The Meg in 30 years from now and I don't get why these films aren't being made to be serious (well, as serious as a prehistoric shark attacking you can be that is).

Watched the trailer and I think this film is gonna be a hoot! Something that you don't need to get invested in, can put on for a easy watch. I may just get this steelbook, ideally using my HMV points so I get it free. lol

Trailer looked awful to me, and I've been told the film is exactly that... I'll pass.

Yeah but that ending was as ridiculous as anything that happens in the deep blue sea lol. Really didn’t like the shallows

What’s that other recent one with Mandy Moore? That wasn’t bad
