Unless you’ve been living under a rock during the past year, you’re probably aware of the whole ‘Sharknado’ phenomenon. The movie, which debuted on the SyFy channel last year featured a tornado made of sharks. And yes, I’m being serious.
While the actual film was nothing short of horrible, the absurdity of the movie captured the heart of social media. Thousands upon thousands of people took to Twitter to talk about the film and there was enough buzz (maybe I should say bite) to create a sequel.
So what takes place during the second installment of the movie? Well, I’d venture to guess there are tornado’s made of sharks much like the one that happens at Citi Field, home to the New York Mets.
SyFy released the Sharknado 2 trailer on Tuesday morning featuring the whirlwind of sharks destroying the Queens ballpark.
In addition to bringing back most of the original cast, there are said to be more celebrity guest spots this go-around.
Sharknado 2: The Second One co-stars Vivica A. Fox and Mark McGrath. Among the guest stars are Kelly Osbourne, Judd Hirsch, Judah Friedlander, Andy Dick and Perez Hilton. The movie, which was filmed in New York City, is directed by Anthony C. Ferrante from a screenplay by Thunder Levin (both of whom worked on the first).
There’s a joke in here about Sandy Alderson and destroying the New York Mets, but I’m just not that witty.
