How can an action film starring Jason Statham be any better? If we see him (potentially) punch a prehistoric shark in the face. Strap in, as The Stath returns as the world’s best and objectively sexiest deep sea rescue diver, Jonas Taylor. This time around he’s been recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer to save the world from an unstoppable threat.

Directed By Ben Wheatley, this larger-than-life thrill ride promises to dwarf the enormously successful original film. The Stath and global action icon Wu Jing are pitted against relentless environmental plunderers and the terrors of the deep, having to outrun, outsmart and outswim their merciless predators in a pulse-pounding race against time.
