From “Jaws” to…
When something is so bad, it’s good.
This is the undeniable truth regarding the cultural phenomenon known as Sharknado. It swept up audiences into a frenzy like the killer sharks swirling around in the tornadoes0. Written, acted and directed as a cheesy Syfy movie of the week, the combination of sharks (Jaws) and tornadoes (Twister) was too much to resist for people of all ages (suitable for the graphic content, of course). Sharks and tornadoes are eternally fascinating and, thankfully, someone had the genius idea (well, the idea at least) to join these two powerful forces of nature together. Plus, who could resist the father from Home Alone, 90210’s Ian Ziering and Tara Reid fighting off sharks swimming around her house on a hill?
And now, the sequel!
Yes, it’s true. The trailer was recently released for the world to see and, rest assured, it doesn’t disappoint (is that Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath?). My recommendation on how to effectively watch the trailer below after an initial viewing right here at Jimmy’s Daily Planet? Go to 7-11, get your free slurpee from 11:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. and enjoy the cinematic madness of sharks, tornadoes, Matt Lauer and the subway system in New York City again with a perfect refreshment and care-free attitude.
It’s a suggestion that’s so bad, it’s good.
Ladies and gentlemen, it happened again:
Come July 30th at 9:00 p.m. on the Syfy channel, you know you’re going to watch Sharknado 2: The Second One.
P.S. Clearly, lots of time and resources were spent on the title…
