Variety reports that the film’s original release date for March 2, 2018 has changed to August 10, 2018. Apparently an untitled Fox/Marvel film is scheduled to open that day so “MEG” was pushed back. It will be released in 3D and Imax.
Some fantastic photos surfaced of our favorite Brit filming in Sanya at the end of December 2016. We previously posted about it and now we finally have more material that gives us a really close look at Jason’s character, Jonas Taylor.
Our favorite Brit’s co-star shared the most adorable photos via one of her official social media accounts in the beginning of January. Even more special is the snapshot of her “MEG” novel filled with lovely messages from her cast mates including Jason’s which will most definitely melt your heart.
I send you lots of love and a big kiss. It was beyond a pleasure to work at your side. You made all of our scenes so special.
Flicks.co.nz visited the set of “MEG” at Auckland Film Studios in New Zealand in December 2016 and got to interview our favorite Brit and director Jon Turteltaub.
When asked if he’d [Jon Turteltaub] consulted with others about the technical aspects of shooting so much of a film on the water, the director answered in the affirmative. “I did. First of all, Jason’s done a ton and was very helpful in telling me how badly it was going to go: “It’s so hard. It’s horrible. It’s water. It’s a mess.” And he’s right. It’s tough. But I’ve talked with a lot of people, not just about shooting out in the water, but shooting in a tank, and what to do to make that look good, based on all the people who called and said, “Here’s what to do to make it look bad” So we’ve improved on it a lot”.
Taken at the end of December 2016 in Sanya, a city on the southern end of China’s Hainan Island, this lovely snapshot shows our favorite Brit with cast members Ruby Rose, Li Bingbing and Jessica McNamee pose for a group photo with the crew.

Kelsey Alten (“MEG” author Steve Alten’s daughter) met our favorite Brit in Sanya in December as well.
Jason’s co-star, Jessica McNamee, shared a gorgeous snapshot taken in Auckland, New Zealand in November. We also came across a set photo of director Jon Turteltaub, Li Bingbing and Jason.
Physiotherapist Peter Lee took care of Jason’s physical condition in Auckland, New Zealand and considered it one of his favorite 2016 moments.
One of the highlights of 2016. Get to work on this superstar. Genuinely a down to earth chap! Thanks for the photo op Jason!
