Shark Movie ‘The Meg’ Surprises Box-Office Records
Despite the hype, people were convinced ‘The Meg’ was going to be a flop for Warner Bros leading up to the release of a movie. But guess what? ‘The Meg’ has already taken in US $44.5 million in North American theaters, collected an additional US $97 million overseas, half of that being China’s contribution.
The movie features a 70-foot shark threatening a crowded Chinese beach, and stars Jason Statham. The movie also co-stars a Chinese actress, Li Bingbing, which may be a big factor in China’s contributions to the movie ticket sales.
