Let’s talk about the specifics of this upcoming film and when it will be released. Additionally, there are additional intriguing updates available for readers.
Release Date for The Meg 2: The Trench 2023
Now let’s talk about the release date. On August 4, 2023, Warner Bros. Pictures intends to release Meg 2: The Trench in the US. Yes, this forthcoming film’s release date of 2023 has been established, and production has already begun. A few months ago, Statham expressed his eagerness to return to the ocean.
Yes, we will begin filming in January. The film’s director is Ben Wheatley. I’m eager to collaborate with him. I can’t wait to start, you know. We’ve been waiting a while for the appropriate script and director to show up, and now we have both of those things.
Now they are all stacked. Ben is fantastic. We already have a fantastic abbreviation. We share similar interests, I enjoy his films, and I believe he is a talented director. I believe we have a fair chance of producing something worthwhile.
In his September 2020 email, Steve Alten said that the script for Meg 2: The Trench had been written. He expressed curiosity about the script’s “dark” nature and potential for an R rating (as opposed to the PG-13 rating for the first movie).
Meg 2: The Plan to Dig a Trench
If The Meg’s audience reception was positive, Jason Statham said in April 2018 that a sequel will be made.
The statement made by Jason was, “I think it’s like anything in this day and age – if it earns money, there’s clearly a desire to make more money. If it doesn’t work out, they’ll quickly sweep it under the rug. Hollywood operates in this manner, though.
Steve Alten claimed this franchise is worth $1 billion in August 2018.
“If done properly, I’ve always believed that this franchise has the potential to be worth a billion dollars. But for it to be done well, the shark, cast, and tone all have to be perfect. And Warner Bros. has perfectly nailed it. The creators have done a great job.

The Meg 2: the Plot
As previously established, Alten’s 1997 book Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror served as the basis for the first The Meg movie. The second book, The Trench, written by Alten two years later, served as the inspiration for the next movie. Even if we don’t yet know the sequel’s main plot, we can make educated guesses based on the book’s narrative.
A young megalodon kept in captivity is being studied by Jonas Taylor in The Trench, which begins a few years after the events of the first book. Other members of the research teams find the Kronosaurus while exploring the Mariana Trench, the location of the megalodon’s original discovery.
This was a big marine reptile that lived in the trench and had evolved to hunt in packs. Jonas now has to face his demons from the first book in order to try and maintain his life while he faces this new beast in addition to the megalodons.
