Warner Bros. Pictures’ giant shark thriller “The Meg” took the biggest bite off the Philippine box office this weekend to open at No.1.

The Meg

The Jason Statham actioner grossed a splashy P63.4-million for the five-day opening weekend (Aug. 8 to 12) in only 274 screens, becoming Warner’s best opener for the year todate after “Rampage” (P59.7-M) and “Tomb Raider” (P57.6-M).

The slasher film’s above-expectations performance bodes well for its anticipated robust second frame.  “The Meg” will continue playing in IMAX and 4D screens this week, enabling moviegoers to still enjoy the ocean-bound adventure’s escapist fun.

“The Meg’s” worldwide total gross now stands at $141-M, including $44.5-M in North America.

The film is distributed in the Philippines by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Entertainment Company.

The Meg Poster

A deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest part of the Pacific Ocean…with its crew trapped inside.  With time running out, former deep-sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is drawn out of self-imposed exile by a visionary Chinese oceanographer, Dr. Zhang (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter, Suyin (Li Bingbing), who thinks she can rescue the crew on her own.  But it will take their combined efforts to save the crew, and the ocean itself, from this seemingly unstoppable threat—a prehistoric 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon.  Thought to be extinct, the Meg turns out to be very much alive…and on the hunt.

Five years before, Jonas had encountered this same terrifying creature, but no one had believed him.  Now, teamed with Suyin, Jonas must confront his fears and risk his own life to return to the ocean depths…bringing him face to face once more with the apex predator of all time.
