The event took place on March 23, 2017 and was live streamed across the country. It kicked off with a long press conference which offered a lot of sweet and funny moments followed by a red carpet premiere where fans had the chance to get up close with our favorite Brit. Today we finally bring you the whole coverage so sit back and enjoy all the Jason goodness. And yes, there is a lot of it.
The film’s cast is featured in the British magazine “Total Film” May 2017 edition. Spoilers ahead so proceed with caution.
Michelle Rodriguez about working with Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham: “They’re ballers, you know?” Rodriguez marvels. “They come from that world that died in the ‘90s. They bring it back to life in full force.”
Several promotional posters and banners had been released a while ago. You can find them all in our gallery.
Jason gave a short interview about the eighth installment which was recorded during the press junket in Los Angeles, California on February 23, 2017.
What a joy to be spoiled with a brand new photoshoot of our favorite Brit. As usual he was photographed by his pal Dan Smith during his time filming “MEG” in Auckland, New Zealand. The magazine also features a very lengthy interview with Jason about his workout, turning 50 this summer and that he wants to be in “The Expendables 4” but that there is no real concept for it yet.
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.
A brand new trailer debuted during the 2017 Super Bowl featuring more of our favorite Brit as Deckard Shaw. It sure will be interesting to watch him “team up” with the enemy and find out his ulterior motive.
