Sharknado Trailer Barely Scratches the Surface of its Divine Madness

The first trailer for The Asylum’s masterpiece Sharknado has finally arrived. Technically, it’s a 30-second spot for the film’s July 11th Syfy premiere. The world gets Sharknado and Pacific Rim all in a span of 48 hours. What a time to be alive!

Sharknado Syfy and Blu-ray Release Dates; The Asylum Announces 13/13/13 and The Bell Witch Hauntings

Several of you who read my Sharknado review have asked when you’ll get a chance to see this astounding motion picture about Los Angeles under siege from a hurricane, shark-infested flood waters, and tornadoes full of apex predators.

Sharknado (2013)

Starring Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, John Heard, Cassie Scerbo, and lots and lots of sharks flying at you from every direction

Age of Dinosaurs (2013)

Starring Treat Williams, Ronny Cox, Jillian Rose Reed, Andray Johnson, Max Ari Directed by Joseph J. Lawson

The Asylum's Atlantic Rim Trailer Goes Big with Giant Robots Battling Giant Monsters

Atlantic Rim may look like lawsuit bait after the last year’s legal woes The Asylum had over their Battleship and Hobbit mockbusters. It better not because it also looks pretty damn cool if you’re like me and believe you can never have enough movies about giant robots battling giant monsters.

Tara Reid, a 90210 Hunk, and a C.H.U.D. Star to Brave the Sharknado

Tara Reid starring in an Asylum movie about a tornado filled with hungry sharks? Why am I not surprised? Read on to find out which stars of “Beverly Hills 90210” and the cult classic C.H.U.D. will be joining her when Sharknado touches down later this year.

Rampaging Dinos Deliver the Goods in the Shockingly Great Looking Trailer for The Asylum's Age of Dinosaurs

Having seen my fair share of dinosaur movies made for Syfy and even by The Asylum, I can only marvel at the quality of most of the dino f/x on display in the trailer for The Asylum’s Age of Dinosaurs.

The Asylum's Atlantic Rim Comes From the Sea

Amazing the things you can find by complete accident when conducting a Google search. Like a Pensacola, Florida, news site spilling the beans about the cast and crew of the Asylum’s Pacific Rim mockbuster Atlantic Rim/From the Sea shooting in their area.

Asylum Filmmaker Thunder Levin Dishes on his Sci-Fi Epic AE Apocalypse Earth and the Astounding Sharknado

It was last summer when I interviewed Asylum filmmaker Thunder Levin before the release of his litigious and surprisingly superior Battleship mockbuster American Warships.

Would You Trade Some Magic Beans for Artwork and a Trailer for The Asylum’s Jack the Giant Killer?

The Asylum’s Jack the Giant Killer likely won’t prompt legal action from Bryan Singer’s similarly titled blockbuster since it appears to be set in the early 20th century, the giants are dinosaur-like monsters, and I’m unaware of any version of “Jack & the Beanstalk” that includes a giant robot.

Hansel & Gretel (Blu-ray / DVD)

Starring Dee Wallace, Stephanie Greco, Brent Lyric Directed by Anthony C. Ferrante

Treat Williams and Ronny Cox Brave the Age of Dinosaurs

Treat Williams barely survived carnivorous sea monsters in Deep Rising, and Ronny Cox famously fell victim to Robocop. Together they will now face a prehistoric threat reborn when bioengineered dinos threaten to transform Los Angeles into a new Age of Dinosaurs.

More on The Asylum / Warner Bros. Hobbit Fiasco

Curiously enough, even before the recent court ruling suspending the release of The Asylum's latest mockbuster, Age of the Hobbits, Redbox’s website has a listing for the film, slating it for Redbox rental on December 31st.

Warner Bros. Blocks Release of Asylum's Age of the Hobbits

For a long time The Asylum has made its way (for better or worse) into the hearts of movie lovers and haters everywhere by releasing mockbuster after mockbuster after... well... mockbuster. However, Warner Brothers and New Line have just had their latest attempt for second breakfast.
