If the thought of a Great White, makes your heart jump, then the pre-historic shark called Megalodon, will have you running for your life!

The re-appearance of the giant sea creature, thought to be extinct, that comes alive in the action, horror, science fiction film The Meg, is frightening and exciting at the same time. And with action-hero Jason Statham in the lead role, the film is sure to be a winner!

Should you be as hungry as Megalodon, a MEG-Giant combo is also on offer. The combo includes a giant popcorn, two regular sodas and two packets of wine gums (125g). 

The Meg will release nationwide on Women’s Day, 9 August 2018, at selected Ster-Kinekor cinemas, as well as in IMAX, Cine Prestige and D-BOX equipped theatres.

Don’t miss the action, so book your tickets now to avoid disappointment.

The Meg is based on the 1997 science fiction book Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror by Steve Alten. The film follows expert sea diver and former Naval Captain Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham), who five years prior encountered a mega monster that forced him to abort his mission and abandon half his crew.  The incident cost him his career and marriage.

Fast forward five years, and a group of scientists must stop a 22m-long Megalodon shark when it rises from the depths of the ocean and attacks their research submersible, leaving the crew stranded. Taylor is called to help rescue the crew and stop the shark before it attacks the mainland and makes a meal of those off-shore.

The film also stars Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, and Cliff Curtis, and Cine Prestige theatres will make for an extra special treat, so you can enjoy The Meg in luxury.

Watch the movie at an IMAX theatre for a truly immersive experience, with its unmatched visual clarity and surround sound that will make you feel like a diver who must face his fears, and the teeth of the giant marine predator. Feel his courage when he chooses to risk his life to save the lives of everyone trapped in the sea vessel. See the terror in his eyes as he faces the largest shark that ever existed and hear his heart beat when he realises that the creature could be on the hunt.

Watch The Meg in D-BOX and move like the giant shark in the deep ocean and go through the motions as if you were in the submersible.
