Meg finally makes its way to the big screen with The Meg, a new shark-tastic film from National Treasure director Jon Turteltaub.

Empire has a first look image from the film, which shows Statham looking very befuddled as the shark just chills in the background.

Jason Statham stars as a former Navy diver who gets hired to rescue a scientists trapped in an underwater research facility.

The Meg has had to face choppy waters on its way to the big screen – when the film first got the greenlight, it was intended for a 2008 release, but then the project found itself swimming in circles in development hell.

Jan de Bont and Guillermo Del Toro were two possible directors named for the film, and in 2015, Hostel director Eli Roth became officially attached. Roth sailed away from the project in 2016, and National Treasure filmmaker Jon Turteltaub took over.

The Meg will be swimming in your theaters in August 10, 2018.
