Jason Statham's big budget epic “The Meg” is eyeing a North American opening weekend in the $60 million range, early tracking shows.
The lower end of estimates come in at $48 million, while others are speculating earnings as high as $65 million.
Tracking also revealed that total awareness is at 82%, definite interest is at 42%, and unaided awareness is at 16% for the 125-million dollar picture, which is co-produced by Hollywood and China.
The Meg is being directed by Jon Turteltaub, the man responsible for the huge Nicolas Cage hit franchise "National Treasure".
The Meg is due to be released in theaters August 10th. The story, which is based on the 1997 science fiction novel, Meg: A Novel of Great Terror by Steve Alten, follows Jason Statham as he attempts to defeat the 75-foot, prehistoric Megalodon Shark.
