Movies on the Field: 'The Meg'
The ASU 365 Community Union presents, in collaboration with ASU Film Spark, a new series of events — Movies on the Field!
Bring a blanket, sit on the grass and enjoy a movie under the stars at Sun Devil Stadium!
Join us on Saturday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. for a screening of "The Meg" (2018).
Jason Statham (“Spy,” “Furious 7,” “The Expendables” films) and award-winning Chinese actress Li Bingbing (“Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “Forbidden Kingdom,” “The Message”) star in this science-fiction action thriller, directed by Jon Turteltaub (the “National Treasure” movies, “Last Vegas”).
In the film, a deep-sea submersible — part of an international undersea observation program — has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew — and the ocean itself — from this unstoppable threat: a prehistoric 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below, bringing him face-to-face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.
Rounding out the international main cast of “The Meg” are Rainn Wilson (TV’s “The Office,” “Super”); Ruby Rose (“xXx: Return of Xander Cage,” TV’s “Orange is the New Black”); Winston Chao (“Skiptrace,” “Kabali”); Page Kennedy (TV’s “Rush Hour”); Jessica McNamee (“The Vow,” TV’s “Sirens”); Olafur Darri Olafsson (“The BFG,” TV’s “The Missing”); Robert Taylor (“Focus,” TV’s “Longmire”); New Zealander Cliff Curtis (“The Dark Horse,” “Risen,” TV’s “Fear the Walking Dead”); Sophia Shuya Cai (“Somewhere Only We Know”); and Masi Oka (TV’s “Hawaii Five-0,” “Heroes”).
“The Meg” will be distributed in China by Gravity Pictures, and throughout the rest of the world by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Entertainment Company.
