How Much $$ Did THE MEG Make This Weekend?

This weekend we finally saw the release of The Meg starring Jason Statham and today we know just how well the new shark attack flick did at the box-office.

Turns out The Meg scored a truly impressive $44 million!

That said, the creature feature cost a reported $130 million so we’ll have to see if it’s a bonafide “hit” later this summer.

The Meg is produced by di Bonaventura Pictures, Apelles Entertainment, Maeday Productions, Inc., and Flagship Entertainment, in association with Beijing Digital Impression (BDI) Film. The screenplay is written by Dean Georgaris along with Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber, based on the New York Times best-selling book by Steve Alten.

In addition to Jason Statham and Li Bingbing, the cast includes Winston Chao, Masi Oka, New Zealander Cliff Curtis, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Page Kennedy, Jessica McNamee, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Robert Taylor, and Sophia Shuya Cai.

The film is currently playing nationwide.


The story involves a deep-sea submersible attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct. The vessel lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific with its crew trapped inside.
