If you want to watch some giant shark action this weekend, you’re in luck. Meg 2: The Trench will be available digitally to purchase and rent starting tomorrow.
Meg 2: The Trench was a weird release in a very weird summer for big-budget films. The first one opened in August 2018 and wasn’t a critical success, but people seemed to like it well enough, and it brought in over $500 million at the worldwide box office. Someone at Warner Bros. had not given into the box office brain rot of the time, looked at that number, and said, “Half a billion for a big shark movie in August is sweet; let’s do it again,” and thus Meg 2: The Trench came to be. Unlike the first time, this one had pretty much zero critical acclaim, but people at the box office seemed to like it all right. It brought in over $300 million at the worldwide box office, putting it ahead of a release like The Flash from the same studio [$268M]. It’s not surprising that Warner Bros. is keeping up with the trend of moving its movies to streaming pretty quickly. IGN revealed that if you want more giant shark action, the film will be out on digital tomorrow. It will be available to buy at home for $24.99 and for 48-hour rental via PVOD for $19.99 on platforms like Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, and more. If you’re more of a home-release kind of person, you have a longer wait. The 4K UHD, Blu-Ray, and DVD release won’t be until October 24th, just in time for some giant shark fun times in spooky season.
“The premium digital ownership, 4K UHD, and Blu-ray releases will contain the following special features:
- The Making of Meg 2: The Trench – Cast and crew revisit the making of the film and working with new and returning cast members, then highlight the beauty and challenges of working with a Meg they can’t see!
- Up From the Depths: Even More Beasts – Director Ben Wheatley, cast, and producers guide fans through the creation and design of the new creatures seen in Meg 2: The Trench.”
