There will be blood in the water.

Meg 2: The Trench–the sequel to the 2018 wet and wild horror thriller–splashes into theaters this summer, and now it has an official rating: PG-13.

Described as containing “action, violence, some bloody images, language and brief suggestive material”, the seaworthy sequel will release Aug. 4.

The film–directed by Ben Wheatley from a screenplay by Dean Georgaris and Erich and Jon Hoeber–brings back Jason Statham in the lead role–along with Cliff Curtis, Shuya Sophia Cai, Page Kennedy, Wu Jing, Sienna Guillory, Skyler Samuels and Sergio Peris-Mencheta.

The original The Meg–directed by Jon Turtelbaum and based on Steve Alten’s 1997 Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror–follows a U.S. Navy diver (Statham) who sets out to rescue a group of scientists from a 75-foot-long prehistoric shark known as a megalodon. A box office smash, the film raked in $530 million worldwide on a $150-million budget.
