If you thought the Sharknado craze was waning, think again. The SyFy network’s B-movie and award winner for most accurate title of all time (it features shark tornados, so, you know) is coming to the big screen.
According to THR, Sharknado is coming to a cinema near you. Regal Cinemas have announced that they will put on midnight shows around the country on August 2nd. Apparently, the film is coming to roughly 200 theaters around the U.S.
SyFy has been airing ridiculous (..ly awesome?) made-for-TV movies like this more years, but something about Sharknado struck a chord with the internet – especially on social media sites like Twitter. I guess it had something to do with the sharks and tornados. Go figure.
“You know how audiences have had fun with Rocky Horror Picture Show over the years. If the internet reactions to this film are any indication, then our moviegoers are primed and ready to enjoy Sharknado larger than life in cinemas,” says Chris Sylvia, Regal’s digital marketing head. “Regal is proud to be giving our guests this chance to fuel the social media whirlwind by inviting friends to come to the show and tweeting reactions.”
That won’t be the last sharknado you see either, as SyFy has confirmed that they will be making a sequel (working title: Sharknado 2). It’s set to hit the network some time in 2014. The sharks will invade New York City in that sure-to-be-hit.
And don’t forget Ghost Shark. For the love of all that’s good and holy, don’t you dare forget about Ghost Shark.
