'The Meg' flooded in tons of dollars at the Boxoffice. When you would make a mockbuster about 'The Meg' - What name would it have? (According titles to existing shark-mockbusters - with completely fictitious second lines.) Making fun of it.

The movie is solid action. I saw it and it's ok. I saw what the trailer promised. Not more, not less. I didn't regret it. It's ok and I liked it. But making fun of it is also ok, I think. ;) When you look closer - the poll is more about doing fun of shark movie-clichés. ;)

Haha, this is great! :)

May I suggest some edits?

A Megalodon is a prehistoric shark with a length of about 20 meters or more. Ever since scientists explored relics of this extinct creature, mankind has fantasized about it. The Meg is now in theaters, and has flooded the box office with tons of dollars.

If you would make a mockbuster about 'The Meg' - What name of these below would you pick for it?

(The following titles are existing shark mockbusters - with completely fictitious second lines.) Making fun of it as mockbusters do, usually.

Typos:

#4: 'Megnado 4: The Fish Awakens'
#11: 'Zombie Meg - Trash Meets Danger !'
#13: 'Megtopuss vs. Barracuda: Kitten Eats Fish'

Thank you Jessica. :D
That was helpful for sure. I corrected all of except #4 and #11. These are intended puns. I literally meant 'meat' in #4 and 'Aweakens' in #11. I thought that puns would be obviously. Now I'm not so sure. Aweakens (to become weak) is a pun for the second title 'The 4th Awakens' on the cover of 'Sharknado 4'. And 'Trash Meats Danger !' is meant as a pun for the title 'Zombie Sharks'. I thought it would be easy to connect and compare that in mind. But maybe I was wrong. Anyway - thank you very much. :)

Maybe someone has a better pun. Then I would put it to the title. I'm open for suggestions. But it should match with the idea of the poll suggestion. It's for fun. And I corrected the #13: Barracuda. That typo was not intended.

Yeah,  the actor and his peers were laughing at his own death scene. Too bad he wasn't able to properly extract the content of the movie.

The CGIs are so cheap, no one could take that for serious. But it's fun to watch these trashys. I guess I understand why he had to cut some scenes that were not in the content. These are kids in the background and shouldn't see the whole scenes. But it still shows the intellectual spirit of these movies. ;) And so the kids had fun, too.

FYC: 
Megoladon (2018)
(although this title is actually proper Megalodon in Russian: something went wrong with submission, I guess)

But the point of the poll is to invent a funny title, no?

Yes, it is. The poster from the movies mostly contain second lines. I took sharkmovies and sharktitles then I turn the sharktitle to a Megtitle. Then I look at the second line of the poster and change it to something funny. (hope so).
