Jason Statham’s return as an action hero in Meg 2: The Trench this summer thrilled fans of the 2018 shark blockbuster. However, despite a lukewarm critical reception and mixed audience feedback, the film managed to swim past the box office abyss and grossed $377.1 million globally.

If you missed it in theaters or want to watch it again, here’s what you need to know about the streaming release of Meg 2: The Trench.

Streaming Release Date

Meg 2: The Trench was distributed by Warner Bros., and as such, it will become available for online streaming on Warner Bros.’ own platform, HBO Max.

It has been 36 days since the film’s theatrical release, and it has already made its digital debut for purchase on August 25, just 21 days after hitting theaters. While an official streaming release date on HBO Max hasn’t been announced yet, Warner Bros. recently confirmed that the movie will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD starting October 24. Typically, significant blockbusters arrive on streaming platforms after their physical release, so we can expect the HBO Max debut to be at least a month away.

By the time Meg 2 is available for physical purchase, 81 days will have passed since its theatrical debut. This is slightly longer than the streaming release window for most Warner Bros. films, which usually range from 45 to 70 days, as seen in recent releases like The Batman” and Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.

If Meg 2 follows this pattern, it should be available on HBO Max in early November. However, Warner Bros. could opt for a more traditional streaming release timing, potentially bringing the movie to HBO Max in early to mid-October.

Where to Stream The Meg (2018)

For those eager to dive back into the world of giant sharks, the 2018 predecessor The Meg is currently available for streaming on HBO Max. Additionally, you can find it on streaming platforms like Fubo TV, DirecTV, TNT, TBS, and TruTV.

While Meg 2: The Trench is still making some waves at the box office, its main focus is shifting towards home release. With a substantial production budget and marketing costs, Warner Bros. aims to recoup its investment through digital and physical sales after a decent but not groundbreaking box office performance.

Fans of the franchise can expect to catch Meg 2 on HBO Max either in early November or possibly a bit earlier, depending on Warner Bros.’s release strategy. So, mark your calendars and get ready for more underwater thrills.
