What exactly does it show and how long is the footage?? Can any pics be posted?? When it jumps out of the water, does it look really big and more importantly, does it look like this will at LEAST be better than the Direct To Video movies like SHARK ATTACK 3 or The SHARKHUNTER?? :-k

I think the effects look good, even though you can really tell its CGI ( I could see the cartoony aspect too) but the thing I find interesting is that the shark can go faster than a helecopter more or less going 100 mph.

COLOR ME EXTREMELY IMPRESSED!!! :whaa: I'm not seeing the discerning eye for recognizing this is CGI and looks pretty damn impressive for what something like this would look like at 70 Foot.. These pics give me great hope this will look far better than any of those Direct To DVD movies based on this..

I believe I read somewhere (perhaps on Steve Alten's site) that they were making MEG a bit smaller.

I don't care how big or small she is. The 3 books were fantastic, and a fourth is coming out in conjunction with the film.

I think they said the shark would be 60 foot in the movie.. I've only read the 1st Novel "MEG" and while it was a good summer thriller, I'm hoping and praying the movie doesn't have the ending of the 1st Novel being HIGHLIGHT FOR SPOILER: They take a page from the Bible with "Jonah and the Whale" and have Dr. Jonas Taylor aim straight for the MEG'S Mouth with his submersible sub and he enters the monster.. Once inside, he proceeds to take the MEG Tooth he carries with him for luck and cut out the shark's beating heart causing the MEG to instantly die.. Problem with this scenario is your expecting the audience to by the theory that a Man could survive the digestive juices of this Shark and that it wouldn't eat through his wet suit and kill him.. Better to just kill this thing in the movie with a Torpedo cause in real life, that's the ONLY way it could be done.. The audience will laugh if they use the ending of the 1st novel in the movie..

heres the thing

i hate the premise. a shark found at the bottom of the ocean now all the way to the top. the pressure would kill it. this fish shouldn't have any physical characteristics they're showing.

now all i need to do is get over that premise because that footage is awesome

send me the book. explanations are always good. lack of explanations with acknowledgement to the issue (example: How is this even possible. this is how it should be) is also good. that puts my worrys to rest.

Impressive considering the FX isn't even final yet.

The xplanation for something like that was actually given in the novel JAWS. Hooper says that because the fish survived so long at the bottom of the ocean, doesn't mean that they were never higher up. The pressure would therefore not kill them because they have adapted over time to the bottom of the ocean. Therefore because they are adpaptable creatures, they could survive near the top but would not need to as the food chain near the bottot of the ocean is abundant enough to negate the need to surface.

so meg is a fish that may have lived closer to the surface, then moved all the way down about 29000 feet and then came all the way back up?

Not the actual fish in the movie, but the species of it, yes.

I PRAY that they keep the opening scene from the book in the film.

MEG takes out a T-Rex that wanders too close to waters edge.

When the book first came out, the quote that made the media rounds was

Jurassic Shark :biggrin:

There are three books

MEG (first and still the best)
The Trench (good, adds a new aquatic monster, and a Blofeld type villian.
Primal Waters (great follow-up, has a reality show spin)

The opening with the T-Rex BTW in MEG, is not present day (not to confuse anyone). It just sets up how 65 Million years ago, the T-Rex definitely wasn't the apex hunter.

I hope they land Dennis Quaid for the lead. I know I know, he was in JAWS 3D.

But Dr. Jonas Taylor screams Dennis Quaid.

I hate Dennis Quad. He ruined Jaws 3D

(No, it wasn't the fact that it was a crappy second sequel with a low budget and shit production values)
