Video: You know, after the car witchcraft in Fate of the Furious, maybe I shouldn’t be surprised. But it seems as though the Fast and Furious franchise’s evolution to blockbuster superheroics has finally happened.

Though they are complete tonal opposites, The Meg feels like an unlikely and very unconventional love letter to Steven Spielberg's Jaws. It's as if the film's writers sat down to watch that 1975 masterpiece and just kept asking "What if?" What if the shark really ate people off the beach? What if the heroes could fight the shark underwater? What if they actually did get a bigger boat?
Jason Statham specialises in action movies, especially crime thrillers where he plays some variation on a special forces agent who doesn’t talk a lot but can fold you in half with a punch. But every once in a while, he steps out of that familiar zone and lets some weirdness infiltrate his tough-guy typecasting. And we love it.
Video: Seemingly every Fast & Furious movie builds up to one moment: Vin Diesel fighting the big bad guy. Usually, that big bad guy is also, well, big -- someone like the Rock or Jason Statham. And as cool as that moment usually is, a new video proves that one thing can make it so much better: Lightsabers.
Forget that movie where Blake Lively hides from a shark on a rock. Give us, instead, Jason Bloody Statham going up against a bloodthirsty, 18m-long Megalodon that's somehow been chilling in the Mariana Trench for millions and millions of years. We're gonna need a bigger boat... full of popcorn.
