The chill we feel in the air might increase with the news that the sequel to the hit SyFy movie “Sharknado” will be hitting the airwaves this July according to a report at Deadline.com. The sequel, titled “Sharknado 2: The Second One”, is guaranteed to clog up Twitter and the web for a good 72 hours. Here’s the gist of the report from Deadline.
Ian Ziering and Tara Reid are packing up their chainsaws and heading to Manhattan for Sharknado 2: The Second One, which will trend on Twitter some as-yet-unspecified day in July, Syfy warned today….In Sharknado 2, Syfy says, “a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a ‘sharknado’ on the city’s population and its most iconic sites, with Fin and April the only ones able to save the city.”
This is the movie we all deserve. The original “Sharknado” was so bad that it turned into camp gold. In that movie a tornado formed over the ocean, and picked up a whole gaggle of sharks who tormented Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. It was a movie where you were actually rooting for the character’s deaths. Here’s a two minute compilation of all the action from the original “Sharknado”.
The sequel raises the bar by bringing the deadly Shark/Tornado hybrid to the streets of New York City. How many yellow cabs will be smashed under the white belly’s of flying sharks? Could a toppling of the Statue of Liberty also be in store? One thing the article on Deadline points out is the opportunity for celebrity cameos. The “Sharknado” franchise is a pipeline to younger online viewers, and that’s very attractive to certain celebs. I’d love to see Richard Dreyfuss pop up before being impaled by a flying shark.
If that doesn’t get you excited than this poster will.
