The new Comic-Con teaser trailer for the upcoming shark disaster film Sharknado 5 has been released and it’s all about creating a narrative that the kinds of devastating events that have plagued people for the four previous films are actually historic problems. Turns out our heroes need to go to where it all began in order to end it once and for all…or until a sixth film is green lit, but that’s a discussion for another time!

The latest installment in the pop culture franchise premieres on Syfy Sunday, August 6th, at 8/7c and will air in more than 100 countries.

Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, a production of The Asylum, is directed by Anthony C. Ferrante based on an original screenplay by Scotty Mullen.

The mission gets personal for Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and his bionic wife, April (Tara Reid), when their young son gets trapped in a traveling ‘nado and transported all over the world. From London to Rio, Tokyo, Rome, Amsterdam, and beyond, our globetrotting heroes will seek assistance from a highly-skilled squad of royals, scholars, and Olympians, enlisting famous faces from news, entertainment, and sports in their most epic battle yet.

Also reprising their roles from previous installments are Cassie Scerbo, Masiela Lusha, and Cody Linley.
