The Meg chomps onto Blu-ray this November

I had every intention of checking out THE MEG (pre-order HERE) in theaters this past summer - but then life, as they say, got in the way. That said, I'm totally up for snagging the film on Blu-ray once it hits. And speaking of which, today we have word via Warner Bros, that the movie will be chomping its way onto 4K UHD Combo Pack, 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD Special Edition and Digital this November.

You can check out the bare-bones special features below. For those who need to know more about the film other than "Statham kicks the huge-gantic ass off of a prehistoric shark for 90 mins", the film's official synopsis goes like this:

A deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest part of the Pacific Ocean…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, former deep-sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is drawn out of self-imposed exile by a visionary Chinese oceanographer, Dr. Zhang (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter, Suyin (Li Bingbing), who thinks she can rescue the crew on her own. But it will take their combined efforts to save the crew, and the ocean itself, from this seemingly unstoppable threat—a prehistoric 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. Thought to be extinct, the Meg turns out to be very much alive…and on the hunt.

Five years before, Jonas had encountered this same terrifying creature, but no one had believed him. Now, teamed with Suyin, Jonas must confront his fears and risk his own life to return to the ocean depths…bringing him face-to-face once more with the apex predator of all time.
