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!
If you’ve read my 4-1/2 out of 5 review of Sharknado, then you know I wasn’t being sarcastic when I used the word “masterpiece” above. I really mean it. It’s 85 minutes of non-stop LOL, OMG, and WTF moments. Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, and John Heard star in this cult classic in the making. Let me again quote my review of this unhinged piece of b-movie pop art:
There are sharks everywhere. Everywhere, I tell you. Nobody is safe anywhere. Not on land or in the air. Not in a boat. Not in a car. Not in a helicopter. Not in a building. They’ll get you in the ocean. They’ll get you on the streets. They’ll get you in the air. They’re coming through windows. Out of the sewers… Out of drainage pipes… Out of swimming pools… Into your living room… On top of your car… On top of you! They’re falling from the sky. It’s raining sharks, hallelujah!
And that aspect of the film is what’s showcased in the 30-second TV trailer Syfy has at long last released for Sharknado. I assure you what you see here is but a mere drop in the bucket of the supreme lunacy that gets unleashed.
Sharknado premieres on Thursday, July 11th, on Syfy at 9/8 Central. Unless you’re part of the protest group that want their Syfy original movies back on Saturday nights (instead of the ratings bomb combo of “Sinbad” and “Primeval: New World”) who have taken to DVR’ing the films on Thursday and then gathering together on social media the following Saturday at 9/8 Central to watch and live riff on the films. Fight the power!
