It’s here. The moment shark enthusiasts and film-lovers alike have been waiting all year for.
The official trailer for the much-anticipated sequel to last summer’s blockbuster smash has just arrived. Titled Sharknado 2: the Second One, it takes the ‘Tornado of Sharks’ premise and transplants it from LA to New York.
Bigger city. Bigger stakes. Bigger sharks.
That’s about it, as far as plot goes. But then, if you’re watching these films for the plot, I’m very sorry to tell you that you’ve come to wrong place.
Look, I’ll be honest with you. No combination of words written here would do the cinematic brilliance that awaits justice. Just hit play and let the magic happen.
It’s hard to pick a favorite moment, but Ian Ziering’s inspirational monologue to a room of frightened New Yorker’s is sitting somewhere at the top:
“They’re sharks. They’re scary. Nobody wants to get eaten – but I’ve been eaten. ANd I’m here to tell you, it takes a lot more than that to bring a man down!”
The film will be released July 30th in the US, and is set to become available in Australia within minutes of this initial screening. We’re excited.
