This afternoon, Westworld creators/showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy made a daring promise: in order to avoid having Redditors guess season 2’s major plot beats before the show itself revealed them to its audience, the showrunners said they would release a detailed video online ahead of its premiere that went …

The shark thriller has had quite a life in the many decades since Steven Spielberg’s landmark Jaws, but it was only a few years ago that we got a film that actually provided a similarly worthy jolt, with Jaume Collet-Serra’s brilliantly executed The Shallows.

Warner Bros has released the first official trailer for Jon Turtletaub’s giant shark movie The Meg, a long-awaited adaptation of Steve Alten’s novel, about a 70-foot long angry, prehistoric shark.

The Meg co-stars Winston Chao, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Page Kennedy, Jessica McNamee, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Robert Taylor, Cliff Curtis, Shuya Sophia Cai, and Masi Oka.
