    Read the book. It's basically your typical monster movie. But if Directed well enough it could be good.

    It's possible that the information hasn't been updated. The Chinese release date was taken from wikipedia, right?

    Wouldn't it be funny if it turned out to be an Asylum Production and it aired on the Scyfy channel?

    The deep sea parts of the trailer look cool, but the beach/yacht attacks... meh.

    I'd love a nice deep sea monster movie :catblush

    From what I understand- and I'm going to put this in spoilers, but I don't know the answer to your question, so this is more speculation than spoiling
    Spoiler:
    There ends up being more than one, although I haven't read the series. It's possible this one dies and another appears in the sequel, or it's also possible that it's a twist in the first one, where they have to contend with multiple sharks. I know in one of the sequels, there are two Megs and they actually battle other prehistoric monsters.

    after reading the summary to the books, it looks like there’s a whole prehistoric ocean below ours where the books keep going back to, the sequels are centered around the first shark daughter and her kids.
