The Meg (2018):
My god this looks terrible... And is that really the best name they could come up with? lol
Don't go in the water.
Just what we need, another bad shark movie. It's been months
Is that a theatrical release? It looks like a Saturday night SyFy flick. Did they learn nothing from Geostorm?
As terrible as shark week. I'll stick to jaws
Just saw the trailers for this.
Sharknado is probably better.
Looks like a box office success.
Finally, a movie about me.
Box Office: ‘The Meg’ Bites Off Strong $44.5 Million Debut
Production Budget: $130 million
Domestic: $44,500,000 31.4%
+ Foreign: $97,000,000 68.6%

The books were good, but it looks like they changed a number of things in the movie
Interesting article from Deadline on how Warner Bros. were able to turn a movie that sounded ridiculous and was tracking badly into a hit through good marketing:
"How Warner Bros. Tore Up B.O. Projections & Audaciously Sold 'Meg' As a Horror Comedy for a $44.5M Weekend Win"
I watched this today. Better than I expected.
Domestic: $88,886,915 27.7%

= Worldwide: $321,086,915

The Guppie just might get a sequel with those numbers.
When I read "The Meg" I thought "Another Family Guy spin off"? Why her?
