Attempting to cash in on one of the most popular Discovery Channel events EVER (ok, at least among my friendship circle), SyFy has announced it's own challenge - from July 26 to August 2, you too can experience SHARKNADO WEEK!
You read that right...an entire week of Sharknado-themed special programming featuring the premiere of Sharknado 2: The Second One on July 30. It will also include Roger Corman’s Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda, and Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark, as well as a salute to the greatest moments in shark film history.
So, grab yourself a bigger boat and prepare to suspend all disbelief for the programming schedule experience of the Summer.
Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark – Saturday, July 26 – When the U.S. government creates an exact robotic copy of the original mega shark, this new mecha shark runs wild – with only the original mega shark standing in the way of global destruction.
Sharkmania: The Top 15 Biggest Baddest Bloodiest Bites – Premieres Sunday, July 27 – This original documentary special takes a light-hearted look back at the 15 best shark movie bites of all time. Comedians, actors and celebrities including Ian Ziering, Brooke Hogan, Richard Moll, Downtown Julie Brown and Mark McGrath discuss their favorite scenes – fun, ridiculous and frightening – from classic shark movies such as Jaws to the outrageous Sharktopus and Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.
Sharknado 2: The Second One – Wednesday, July 30 – In Sharknado 2: The Second One, the sequel to last summer’s global pop culture sensation, a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished iconic sites – and only Fin (Ian Ziering) and April (Tara Reid) can save the Big Apple.
Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda – Sunday, August 2 – In this new Roger Corman movie, the child of Sharktopus goes toe-to-toe with the latest science experiment “Pteracuda” – half Pteradactyl, half Barracuda — in a battle for monster supremacy.
I don't know about you...but I'm pretty sure that I have plans that week.
