Listen, I’ve seen my share of B-movies. I have a special place in my heart for the B-movie. “Sharknado 2” takes B-movie next level. This SyFy original (emphasis on original), the sequel to the runaway hit “Sharknado,” was much anticipated and premiered Wednesday night.
There were legitimate warnings that “Sharknado 2” might break the internet with the twitter storm that would ensue during the broadcast. And sure enough, twitter was lit up with #Sharknado2TheSecondOne. Celebrities and commoners alike were tweeting up a virtual Sharknado. Woe unto the person who was not tweeting about “Sharknado 2.” Those tweets were buried deeper than dinosaur bones.
And who can blame them?
The film had an incredible cameo list, including Biz Markie, Andy Dick, Judd Hirsch (who drove a taxi), Kelly Osbourne, Matt Lauer, Al Roker, Kelly Ripa, Michael Strahan, Billy Ray Cyrus, Perez Hilton, Jared from Subway… the list goes on and on. It’s actually a wonder YOU didn’t have a cameo.
In case you missed it, you’re not out of luck. Not only can you catch it during its multiple replays on SyFy, it will be in theaters on August 2, ONLY. You can see it locally atShowplace Icon in the West End.
A word to the wise, when “Sharknado 3” makes its inevitable premiere, you might want to consider watching it live. 90% of the fun of watching the movie is watching it on social media.
And the tweets keep coming. This morning, we’re all feeling a lot like @phillykelly.0
