Meg 2: The Trench Trailer Teases Bonkers Monster Mayhem

I have to be honest, I’m not a huge fan of shark movies. Jaws is so good it pretty much ruined the subgenre for me, but there is one big exception (and I do mean big!): The Meg. As a kaiju fanatic, I love the idea of a giant shark running rampant, and I have a ton of fun every time I watch that film. So naturally, I’m really looking forward to the sequel, Meg 2: The Trench, and after getting a chance to check out the trailer, I’m more excited for it than ever.

Much like the first movie, this one is about a group of scientists who embark on an exploratory deep-sea dive and discover a prehistoric ecosystem that no human has ever laid eyes on. While there, they come face to face with megalodons and other monsters from the distant past, and when they get back to the surface, they find that some of those creatures have followed them.

That premise has the potential to be absolutely bonkers, and if the trailer is any indication, Meg 2: The Trench is not going to disappoint. Not only does it feature a whole bunch of fun megalodon action, but it also teases some of the other ancient beasts this film has in store for us, and they look really cool.

Most notably, there’s some sort of giant squid or octopus that seems to be terrorizing a beach, and there even appear to be some land animals too. To be frank, I don’t know how anything non-aquatic could’ve come from the bottom of the ocean, but I can’t wait to find out. This movie looks like an all-out prehistoric monster mash, so I’m absolutely chomping at the bit to see it.

Meg 2: The Trench is set to arrive in theaters on August 4.
