"The Meg" is a surprise box office monster



LOS ANGELES – At the weekend, "The Meg" for Warner Bros. looked like a big, fat bellyflop.

Surveys showed little interest in the killer shark movie, which should cost and market at least $ 200 million. Rival Studios chuckled that Warner's new marketing director had made a rookie mistake in supporting The Meg with a campaigned campaign: Make a joke of your own non-comic film that holds Hollywood wisdom and ticket shoppers stay home.

Do you guess who gets the last laugh? "The Meg," an ugly, mindless, computer-generated mishmash, spent $ 44.5 million in North American cinemas-about 1

20 percent more than most analysts expected. "The Meg" raised an additional $ 97 million overseas, with China contributing half of it.

"The Meg" was co-funded and co-produced by Gravity Pictures, a Chinese company, and developed for the sale of tickets in China. The film plays a starring role in a Chinese actress, Li Bingbing, and the 70-foot shark in its midst threatens a crowded Chinese beach in an action sequence. "The Meg" plays Jason Statham and was directed by Jon Turteltaub, whose last big-budget movie was the 2010 flop "The Sorcerer's Apprentice."
