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.
As many of you long time readers know, I visited the set of Sharknado 3 earlier this year and took part in the filming of one of the earlier scenes in the film. So of course I’ve been dying to know if I made the final cut or not. The swag bag that came with the screener is very nice. It included a selfie stick – something I’ve been dying to try, but scared to put my iPhone on one of these things, some caramel popcorn, socks (who doesn’t need a nice pair of socks during a Sharknado?) and of course the cooler style bag. Look for my review next week! Sharknado 3 hits the SyFy channel next Wednesday, July 22, at 9pm.
Syfy will host six panels at San Diego’s Comic-Con 2015 – including two exclusive screenings for Dominion and new, epic series, The Expanse (followed by a panel with the show’s executive producers and cast – moderated by the writer of the novels).
Other panels will include: Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (writer, director, cast), Childhood’s End (screenwriter and stars), 12 Monkeys (executive producers and cast) and Z Nation (executive producer, writer-producer and cast).

Syfy has been snatching up all kinds of cool stuff to adapt for television: Frank Miller’s sci-fi miniseries, Ronin; Jonathan Hickman’s military SF/time travel graphic novel, Pax Roman; Robert Kirkman’s clone/conspiracy thriller, Clone; and Lev Grossman’s fantasy novels series, The Magicians. Also, the previously mentioned Letter 44.
Plus (under the category of retread/WHY?) Sharknado 3. For details on all of the above, check out the press releases following the jump.
