Since Steven Spielberg’s iconic “Jaws” in 1975, sharks have had a significant impact on pop culture. While great whites have dominated the movie scene for decades, it’s time for a trendier toothy menace to take center stage – the megalodon. Films like “The Meg” franchise, including the new sequel “Meg 2: The Trench,” and the recent sea thriller “The Black Demon,” have brought this prehistoric shark species into the spotlight. With lengths of 50 to 60 feet and weighing around 50 tons, the megalodon surpasses modern great whites in size threefold, amplifying the fear factor. As the appeal lies in the sheer terror of encountering a colossal creature that could swallow you whole, it’s no wonder the megalodon is making waves in cinema, attempting to devour none other than Jason Statham on the big screen.
