‘Sharknado: The 4th Awakens’ Trailer Finally Brings Giant Robots Vs. Sharks
The third in the Sharknado franchise (a real phrase I just typed) already took us to space, so how might The 4th Awakens top it? Anything you can imagine, whether fire-nados, cow-nados, Chippendales dancers crotch-thrusting sharks to the ground, and of course, giant chainsaws and mech suits. Don’t believe us? See the trailer for yourself.
Syfy released the first official trailer for Sharknado: The 4th Awakens, which, if nothing else, at least drops a shark on Carrot Top. This time around, the sharks seem to be weaponizing all manner of new tornados, and … wait, did we spy a dragon shark in there?
Check out some additional sneak peeks:
Sharknado: The 4th Awakens will premiere on July 31, again directed by Anthony C. Ferrante from a Thunder Levin screenplay. Ian Ziering, David Hasselhoff and Ryan Newman have also confirmed returns, while the first synopsis reads thusly:
The fourth installment of the SHARKNADO franchise will take place five years after the East Coast was ravaged in last summer’s SHARKNADO 3: OH HELL NO!. Fin (Ian Ziering), his family and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the intervening years, but now sharks – and ‘nados! – are being whipped up in places (and ways) least expected.
Gary Busey (“Lethal Weapon,” ”Celebrity Apprentice”), as Wilford Wexler, April’s father and a lead scientist at Astro-X. He’s at the forefront of advances in the field of robotics.
Tommy Davidson (“Black Dynamite,” “In Living Color”), as Aston Reynolds, playboy tech billionaire. Aston is the CEO of tech company Astro-X, developers of a revolutionary energy system that can stabilize the atmosphere and prevent the formation of tornadoes.
Imani Hakim (“Everybody Hates Chris”), as Gabrielle, Matt’s best friend and a fellow soldier. Gabrielle is tough and no-nonsense, can take care of herself and isn’t afraid to show what she’s capable of doing.
Cody Linley (“Hannah Montana,” “Melissa & Joey”), as Matt, Fin and April’s eldest son. After surviving the first Sharknado, Matt finished flight school and joined the Army. He’s experienced the events of the last six years from afar and longs to reunite with his American Hero father.
Masiela Lusha (“George Lopez”), as Gemini, Fin’s cousin. Ever resourceful, Gemini is chock full of shark-busting attitude and is ready to dive into the fight once the sharks hit the fan.
Cheryl Tiegs (“The Apprentice”), as Raye, Fin’s mother and Col. Gil Shepard’s ex-wife. Raye is a little bit of a former flower child, but not afraid to speak her mind or protect her family.
While we wait for more, Sharknado: The 4th Awakens will debut on July 31.
