The night Sharknado 2: The Second One airs, what do you think will generate the most social media traffic? Those watching and snarking, those not watching but still snarking, or those bitching about all the Sharknado snarking as if this movieâ€™s existence is their new 9/11?
Love it or hate it, The Asylumâ€™s Sharknado is a bona fide pop culture phenomenon, one bolstered almost entirely by social media. But can lightning strike twice, or has Sharknado already jumped the proverbial shark?
Syfy has finally put up the full trailer for this summerâ€™s biggest schlockbuster (though you did give it a run for its money, Amazing Spider-Man 2), and it looks like the same movie as before only now in New York City with more sharks, more Ian Ziering trying to become the most iconic chainsaw-wielding b-movie hero since Ash, more celebrity cameos (Perez Hilton, Kelly Osbourne, Andy Dick, Kurt Angle, Al Roker, Matt Lauer, Pepa, Biz Markie, Judah Friedlander, and more), and 100x more self-awareness. That self-awareness could ultimately prove to be the filmâ€™s undoing or its saving grace.
We will all find out on July 30th on Syfy at 9/8 Central when Sharknado 2: The Second One attempts to take television by storm and become all the rage on Twitter, Facebook, tumblr, Tinder, Instagram, Reddit, LinkedIn, Pinterest, MySpace, Live Journalâ€¦ ummm, 4Chan, Buzzfeed, Match.com, Drudge Report, Craigslist, Pornhubâ€¦ You get the idea.
And donâ€™tâ€™ forget the original Sharknado returns to theaters this Thursday when Rifftrax Live gives the film the MST3K treatment.
