Americans can't get enough of two things: Shark Week and crappy disaster movies. Okay, fine, maybe more than two things, but it doesn't change the fact we definitely love the hell out of the first two.
And 2013 conclusively proved that when you put those two things together, we lose it completely. When the first Sharknado movie came out, it was all the internet talked about for a week. We were awash in a sea of ecstasy at having watched a movie so hilariously, purposefully bad that it came full circle to actually being amazing.
It was a thing, in other words.
And then, last year, came [Sharknado 2: The Second One](movie:1228437). Of course, there was the predictable avalanche of spin-off movies, such as [Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda](movie:1518668) and [Sharktopus vs Mermantula](movie:1571987), but really nothing could capture the coked-out script perfection of the original series, and nothing else will suffice.
Because - that's right! - we're getting a [Sharknado 3](movie:2366701). SyFy and The Asylum made a joint announcement today that both Tara Reid and Ian Ziering would be back for a third movie.
What new terror shall the sharks wreak upon humanity? According to the announcement, the sharks will turn their destruction upon that most unlucky of cities (at least in movies), Washington, D.C.
I don't know about you guys, but the idea of a shark crashing through the dome of the Capitol and then devouring a bunch of bickering politicians in a spray of blood is something I am down with. I am so 157% down with it.
Will you be tuning in to the third installment of this, our most glorious and revered of American cinematic masterpieces?
I mean, how could you not?
