Couple bits of Sharknado-related news:
- The release date for the sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One (tagline: “Shark Happens”), which, as a reminder, features every D-list celebrity you can think of and is set in New York City, because shark-filled tornadoes are bi-coastal weather events now, has been pushed up to Wednesday, July 30. Please make a note in your calendars, or wherever you keep notes about sequels that appear to be trying very, very hard.
- Syfy has released the official poster for the film, which (a) you can see above, and (b) features a storm full of giant sharks destroying the Statue of Liberty after apparently carrying it into greater Manhattan from the sea. Considering the first Sharknado film ended with a Beverly Hills 90210 alum chainsawing himself and a spunky bartender out of the stomach of a Great White shark that had just torpedoed to Earth from the heavens, I suppose this course of events is actually pretty reasonable.
As for me, I’m continuing to protest this film until they bring back Nova the Bartender. Or cast Coolio as a meteorologist. Either one will do.
