Another The Meg poster has been released and it features Australian actress Ruby Rose.

Shot in New Zealand, the movie has some serious Jaws vibes. The sci-fi horror, directed by Jon Turteltaub and starring Jason Statham, is an adaptation of the 1997 novel by Steve Alten and will hit the screens later this summer.

Ruby Rose is badass Jaxx Herd

Rose plays the role of Jaxx Herd, one of the fearless members of the crew helping Statham saving the day.

The OITNB actress posted an image of the new poster for the movie on her Twitter account on 31 July.

Despite the laconic caption, fans couldn’t contain the excitement.

‘Without clicking on the photo and only seeing the name, I was hopeful it was a biography on Meg Ryan,’ a user tweeted.

‘[…] but this looks amazing too,’ she also wrote, adding a shark emoji.

While we’re eager to know more about her badass role, let’s get an idea of the movie by watching the trailer below:

The plot

Meg is short for a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon, thought to be extinct.

The massive creature, however, is alive and kicking. It, in fact, attacks a deep-sea submersible —part of an international undersea observation program— leaving its crew stranded.

With time running out, expert deep-sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao) against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew and the ocean itself from this unstoppable threat.

Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature years before. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below. This will, of course, brings him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.

An American-Chinese production, The Meg will hit theaters in both countries on 10 August.
