“MEG 2: The Trench The Success of International Markets and Collaboration”
The movie “MEG 2: The Trench” has made a stir in overseas markets despite a slightly poor domestic start during its first week, demonstrating the importance of a global box office and cross-border collaboration in filmmaking. The movie may have had a slow start here, but it has soared internationally, earning an incredible $250 million by itself.

The film’s remarkable international success has been largely attributed to the cooperation between the United States and China in its co-production. If anyone ever wondered how important overseas box office receipts for particular films were, go no further than The sequel to the astounding 2018 smash “The Meg,” in which Jason Statham played Jonas Taylor, is titled “MEG 2: The Trench.” With its enormous prehistoric shark stalking the ocean’s depths, “The Meg” was an exciting, slightly more serious movie, but it nevertheless managed to earn $529 million globally.

In the follow-up, Ben Wheatley makes his debut. He is recognized for helming cerebral and action-packed movies including “Free Fire,” “High-Rise,” “Kill List,” and “Sightseers.” Although all of Wheatley’s movies have a strong sense of comedy, the humor in “MEG 2,” in which Statham makes a second appearance to take on not one, but three megalodons, is heightened tenfold. The movie made a huge sensation in overseas markets, achieving an astonishing total of $316 million in just 16 days, despite its phenomenal start at the home box office with a solid $30 million opening weekend. Notably, $250 million of this total comes from foreign box office receipts.

This is really important for a number of reasons. The fact that this sum represents 79% of the movie’s overall revenue highlights the crucial importance of international cooperation.Like its predecessor “The Meg,” “MEG 2” was jointly produced by the US and China with a large financial contribution from CMC Pictures (China Media Capital). Winston Chao, a famous and heroic figure in China, is also featured.

Chao, who coincidentally played Changjin Lake in “The Battle of Lake Changjin,” a big box office hit that became the highest-grossing Chinese movie of all time globally, has contributed to closing the international success gap for the movie, which may soon disappear.

Indeed, the strength of this teamwork is never undercut in the movie, which is better for everyone. Due in large part to its impressive performance in international markets, it has gained notoriety on a global scale. Despite having a $129 million budget, China accounts for nearly a third (94.8 million) of the movie’s worldwide earnings. Therefore, if you’ve ever downplayed the significance of global markets, learn from Statham and his shark-punching friends. “MEG 3” appears prepared to ride this confidence wave forward
