Everyone who can guess all the ridiculous cameos in Sharknado 3 gets a shiny penny. Is it ok for me to hate this because I was cut out of the crowd scene for my movie debut? Gah! Damn you Director Anthony C. Ferrante! I’m glad I didn’t have that Sharknado 3 party, or I’d feel like Kevin Costner must have when he first saw The Big Chill. Anyhoo, SyFy’s new summer tradition returns for another round of, nonsensical insanity. Is that even a thing? Sharknado 3 throws any pretense of being a serious movie out the window with the opening homage to Bond movies.
The folks at SyFy Channel have always tried a tad too hard to come up with that one, cheesy, cult classic that they could milk for years to come. They had Dinosaurs, Tarantulas, Big Foot, Piranhas, and more. It took the old standby Sharks to give them their hearts desire. Who knew Sharknado would take the world by storm and become the movie everyone talked about at last year’s Comic Con? SyFy’s brilliant marketing campaign kept people talking about it months after it initially aired. Can the sequel Sharknado 2: The Second One bite again?
New York is under attack by a Sharknado and only Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and Vivica A. Fox can save the day! I had a chance to catch up with the cast and Director Anthony Ferrante of Sharknado 2: The Second one to chat about the franchises enormous success, the power of social media and taking on those damn sharks in the city that never sleeps. Sharknado 2: The Second One premieres Wednesday, July 30 at 9PM (ET/PT) on Syfy.
