Jason Statham’s Killer Shark Movie The Meg Introduces Its Bait

Imagine a really big shark. No, bigger than that. Really big. I can guarantee that whatever you’re picturing would still be but a snack for the gargantuan menace of The Meg. This upcoming shark caper is the next project from The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and National Treasure: Book of Secrets director John Turteltaub, who sounds like he’s way overdue changing his name to John Sharkeltaub.

Based on Steve Alten’s 1997 book Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror, the movie follows the crew of a deep sea submersible as they’re menaced by a giant, hungry monster. Said monster turns out to be a prehistoric Megalodon (hence ‘The Meg’), and its colossal razor-sharp jaws leave the sub trapped on the ocean floor. Only one man can face down ‘The Meg’ and save the crew, and he comes in the form of Jason Statham.

He’s got a past beef with this shark,

Why Nicolas Cage Is Everywhere at Independent Film Markets

Why Nicolas Cage Is Everywhere at Independent Film Markets
The Croods (which grossed $187 million in the U.S. and $573 million worldwide) in 2013, and his last live-action hit was 2007's National Treasure: Book of Secrets ($220 million domestic, $457 million global). But his diminishing value hasn't stopped foreign distributors from betting on the actor.

Like clockwork, a new Cage action-thriller was announced a week before the American Film Market's Nov. 1 opening — A Score to Settle,...

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge (aka Dead Men Tell No Tales) movie review: yo ho no

MaryAnn’s quick take… The franchise finally overstays its welcome with this cacophony of CGI spectacle, a contrived and confusing plot, and a newly cruel and stupid Jack Sparrow. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the original trilogy…

I’m “biast” (con): …but started to lose a little patience with the fourth film

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Okay, make it stop. This amusement-park ride has gone on long enough. It is no longer any fun. I’m feeling a bit nauseated, in fact.

I adored the original Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy: they were smart, fun popcorn flicks that worked as clever updates on the classic Hollywood swashbuckler, all adventure and movie-movie romance and total, wonderful nonsense. With the third installment, 2007’s At World’s End, the series even managed to whip up some satirical zing, in its plot about gig-economy independent-contractor pirates versus

How Diane Kruger Went From Ballet Dancer to Actress And Found Herself Along the Way

How Diane Kruger Went From Ballet Dancer to Actress And Found Herself Along the Way
“How are you not a big damn star?” This was the question I most itching to ask German actress Diane Kruger when we sat down to discuss her curious career and her latest lauded film, Alice Winocour’s surreal thriller “Disorder.”

A striking beauty with regal cheekbones, the tri-lingual Kruger has been awing audiences for years, thanks to turns in French prestige pictures like Benoît Jacquot’s “Farewell, My Queen” and bold American movies like Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds.” Yet somehow, Kruger’s path has not led her to A-list status. Retracing her steps from ballerina to model to internationally acclaimed thespian, we explored the whys and why bother of it all.

Nicolas Cage gives an update on National Treasure 3

Back in October of 2013, director Jon Turteltaub revealed that he hoped to go into production on National Treasure 3 “within two years”, only for things to fall deathly silent on the third chapter in Disney’s action-adventure series.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, star Nicolas Cage has confirmed that the project remains a possibility, but so far they’ve been unable to nail down the script:

“I haven’t really heard anything about that,” states Cage. “I do know that those scripts are very difficult to write, because there has to be some credibility in terms of the facts and fact-checking, because it was relying on historical events. And then you have to make it entertaining. I know that it’s been a challenge to get the script where it needs to be. That’s as much as I’ve heard. But they’re still working on it.”

Nicolas Cage gives an update on the status of National Treasure 3...

It's been a long, long time now since the second National Treasure movie, National Treasure: Book Of Secrets. The film, headlined of course by Nicolas Cage, made it into cinemas in 2007, and since then, there's been regular chatter about a National Treasure 3.

Crucially, though, there's been no National Treasure 3.

That said, producer Jerry Bruckheimer regularly insists that the film is in the works, and in a new interview, Nicolas Cage too has revealed that it's still being worked on.

Chatting to EW about the status of the project, he said that "I haven’t really heard anything about that. I do know that those scripts are very difficult to write, because there has to be some credibility in terms of the facts and fact-checking, because it was relying on historical events".

Why National Treasure 3 Is Taking So Long, According To Nicolas Cage

Ok, so the cinematic community might not be crying out for National Treasure 3, but the fact that its two previous instalments took in just over $815 million at the box office means that it's understandable that a third has been in development. However, it.s now been almost 9 years since National Treasure: Book Of Secrets was released, and the franchise.s star Nicholas Cage has admitted that we.re still nowhere nearer to it becoming a reality. During his discussion with Entertainment Weekly, Nicholas Cage admitted that National Treasure 3 has been in development for so long because of all the research that.s been involved in trying to get the script completely right.
