One of the strangest film franchises out there is Sharknado. For four films, Ian Ziering and Tara Reid played a couple who experience “sharknadoes,” or tornadoes filled with sharks, wherever they go. It seems to be doing well as it will be returning for a fifth film called Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, and the trailer is out now!
Watch the trailer below:
The fifth film is ambitious as it takes on a more global scale, with sharknadoes occuring in the United States of America, Brazil, the United Kingdom, Italy, Japan, and Egypt. As Ziering said in the trailer, “They’re bigger, stronger, and stranger.”
The creators seem to be aware of how surreal Sharknado is, with the trailer mentioning reviews like “gloriously idiotic” by Newsday and “absolutely pointless” by RogerEbert.com.
The first film was received well by critics, with Rotten Tomatoes saying, “Proudly, shamelessly, and gloriously brainless, Sharknado redefines ‘so bad it’s good’ for a new generation.”
Sharknado 5: Global Swarming will premiere on August 6, 2017.
