Syfy's forthcoming 'Sharknado' sequel 'Sharknado 2: The Second One' has been admittedly light with the titular disaster in early teasers and clips, but at long last, the rain is come. Sharks are jumped, cameos are paraded, and we're pretty sure Ian Ziering hits a shark into a pizza oven in the first full trailer for 'Sharknado 2: The Second One'!
A few weeks ago Syfy's stupendous sequel 'Sharknado 2: The Second One' whipped us all into a frenzy with a brief teaser trailer that sadly lacked in, well, sharks! Now, the epic saga continues with a brand-new extended clip for the newest 'Sharknado,' which reveals that subways are no guarantee of safety for Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath.
Just when you thought it was safe to stay out of the water, Syfy's infamous 'Sharknado' is poised to take a bite out of the Big Apple, as 'Sharknado 2: The Second One' prepares to make landfall on July 30. The first teaser trailer for the second sharkening has arrived, and if you were wondering whether or not sharks attack the New York Mets, we've got you covered.
In the grand tradition of 'The Godfather,' 'Star Wars' and 'Back to the Future,' Syfy ordered a 'Sharknado 3' because you just can't do an epic proper justice unless you make it into a trilogy, thus cementing (or forcefully trying to demand by default) its proper place in classic cinema.
Though The Asylum have produced many a schlocky exploitation film with catchy titles (when they're not busy making low-budget knock-offs of big studio movies), for whatever reason 'Sharknado' caught the public's attention, or at least gave Twitter a chance to snark for two hours. Though its initial debut wasn't that highly rated, the film has morphed into a cultural... Moment? Phenomenon? Something? And so now we're getting a sequel.
Would you pay to see something in the theater if it had already aired multiple times on television for free? Most of the time you'd say no, right? But, what if it's the pop culture joke of the summer? Of course, we're referring 'Sharknado' - the so-bad-its-good phenomenon that has taken the country by storm. Yes, you can soon see it on the big screen, you lucky dog you!
After years of pumping out amazingly awful, bargain bin TV movies, SyFy finally hit the big time with 'Sharknado.' For the first time, one of the network's movies was so silly, so dumb and so instantly meme-able that the world-at-large took notice and made it a thing. People were actually talking about 'Sharknado'! Real people! So it's no surprise that SyFy has announced a sequel. After all, they probably have a spare $137 lying around to fund it.
While many of us this week are still dealing with the crippling aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, we should all take a moment and be thankful that it wasn't worse. It could've been a Sharknado. What's a Sharknado? An upcoming movie is about to show you.
