Meg 2 the Trench on OTT: Big shark movie to stream on JioCinema, Netflix or Prime Video in India?

The sequel to the 2018 The Meg is a Warner Bros Pictures release, but will that make Meg 2: The Trench an HBO Max OTT presentation?

Last Thursday (August 3), the Jason Statham-led sequel to the 2018 hit The Meg, Meg 2: The Trench, released in theatres worldwide. Loosely adapted from the novel series by Steve Alten – Meg: A novel of deep terror for The Meg and The Trench for Meg 2: The Trench – the film series follows a bunch of oceanographers who’ve stumbled on the existence of pre-historic Megalodons, which were previously thought to be extinct. This is, of course, followed by a man vs monster fight, with no prizes for guessing who wins in the end.


While The Meg was a big hit, raking in USD 530 million worldwide, Meg 2: The Trench has opened at a time when Greta Gerwig’s Barbie and Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer are still going strong at the box office. Made at a budget of USD 185 million (approx.), Meg 2: The Trench opened well in the overseas market, but its domestic box office in the US was tepid.

Monster movies with money shots are, no doubt, meant for big-screen viewing, but there’s a section of audience that’s waiting to catch all the action in the comfort of their homes. So, the question is, where will Meg 2: the Trench be available to stream after its theatrical run. The earlier film, The Meg, is currently available on Amazon Prime Video, but on rental basis only. But with Warner Bros Pictures content coming to India through JioCinema now, the question is if Meg 2: The Trench will be part of its subscription package. Some reports suggest that the film could bypass this route and settle for a streaming partner with a global subscription base, like Netflix, for instance. For now, Meg 2: The Trench still has a long way to go at the box office to break even.
