In early August, "Sharknado" clouds are going to gather once again.
But instead of witnessing the devastation on TV, fans can catch the so-bad-it's-good epic at the movies. (Yes, that's right: You'll get to see Ian Ziering chainsaw his way out of a flying shark on the big screen.)
Regal Entertainment Group plans to host midnight screenings of "Sharknado" at roughly 200 theaters across the country just after 12 a.m. on August 2.
The purposely cheesy Syfy flick starred Ziering and Tara Reid as two Californians trying to survive a sudden tornado of sharks hits land. Its July 11 premiere didn't have that many viewers - about 1.4 million tuned in - but it did have massive buzz on social media, with more than a few celebrities chiming in on Twitter.
And thanks to the evident fandom for "Sharknado," there's now also a sequel on the way, this time set in New York.
It looks like Regal Entertainment is banking that those clamoring for more #Sharknado are going to dish out $12.50 for access to their one-night-only event.
“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," Regal Entertainment Group’s director of digital marketing Chris Sylvia said in a statement.
To see if "Sharknado" will touch down near you, check out this list of participating theaters.
Snarknado was supposed to be sharks, that were caught up in a tornado, over the Pacific Ocean. But these sharks were so big, they were swallowing people whole. Can't wait to see how much bigger, New York sharks are.
these guys remind me of the dudes at the shore...the surfboards the sun glasses...hysterical
Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the supermarket.

When are they going to air the "Purple Nurple" movie?
Im now completely embarassed to be American
I like a crappy movie as much as the next person but I wont ever pay to go see a crappy movie. I can DVR it and watch it when I want to.
Bad movies can be fun to watch. Sometimes I love watching a bad movie....."Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" is a GOOD BAD MOVIE
It said purposely cheesy, and that it was. My husband and I had to watch it to see what everyone was talking about, and it was bad, but so badly good!
I had to watch this just cuz everyone was raving about how it was 'so bad it was good'. It was not. It was the absolute worst POS I have ever seen! The 'acting' was so atrocious, wasn't that Ziering guy on 90210 for like 12 years?? How could he not know how to deliver one single line believably? And as for the 'sharknado' part...that was so freakin' lame.
Sorry. Not even remotely funny. Just AWFUL.
1st – CNN Blog Moderator, control the spam. This 'dating' blogger is way ahead of you. You take our post down for random reasons, but allow this??
2nd – Movie execs still haven't grasped what a 'social trend' is. Up in a minute and down within 24 hours. No one is going to pay for this in movie theaters. Can the people who convinced you to do this. Terrible. Then again, you are the ones who probably think Kris and the Kardashians are still in vogue *vomit*
It should be called "Shark-nami: Invasion of NYC !"
Sharknado was so weird, funny and so goofy ! More of the same !
Or Shark-quake ! Earthquake + Sharks = Shark-quake ! There's your third sequel !
I would gladly pick the corn out of Tara Reid's poops and stuff them in my mouth.
I SHOVED A TOY SHARK FIGURINE UP MY BUTT ONE TIME AND HAD TO CALL 911!
Who is Zeiring? Can't CNN find reporters to proofread stories and give us the actual full name of the actor? No wonder they are at the bottom of the ratings.

This movie was a large steaming pile of poop. Now I want to eat it.
You are boring and pathetic.
you're making the usual boring and pathetic retort, with the same verbage you always use. Do us all a favor and die already.
I want to bathe in an Indian port-a-potty.
The ran the movie again last night, so I watched it, sort of. I got to say, this was one of the worst acting, worst story lines, worst everything that I have seen in a movie in a long time. Now, they are going to make a sequel? That is just crazy. They got their 15 minutes of media coverage for the first one, but another one? Isn't that like trying to milk a dead cow? I got to say, I did laugh many times through the movie. Tara Reid trying to run in high heals carrying that chainsaw was hilarious just in itself. This movie sure had the hype running in their favor, that's for sure.
I thought we were smarter than this.
That's the problem, no one else is doing any thinking.
Sad moment in cinema.
I'm working on Poopnado right now.
Orcanami for west coast is next
Then in Florida Gatorcane !
Out-of-touch companies have been trying to pander to these mythical 'internet dollars' for ages. Have they already forgotten the lesson of Snakes on a Plane??
I think they have.
another sign of the coming apocalypse
I actually enjoy the syfy movies. Prefer when they were on Sat. nights though. This is nothing but a case of a marketing team targeting how pathetic the internet has become. This movie was just bad, not campy bad. The next time I hear the words viral and meme I'm going to hit someone.
Sharks in NYC? Oy to the vey!
Schlocks and bagles.
A tornado of sharks. Hey, that's creative. You want something more horrifying? A tornado of cheesy car insurance commercials, starring Flo.
that was hilarious, i spilled coffee my pants because of that, which is not hilarious.
Uh oh... now they will make "Cobraquake" and "Killer Beezzard", shortly after that the versus movies willl start... "Sharknado VS Pirranhaphoon"
Yeah, no kidding. I was going to watch the second run of the movie, just to see what all the hype was about. I forgot to record it. I flipped into it just when the shark came down on Ziering holding the chainsaw. I thought to myself, this must be a comedy, because I laughed my butt off on that one. Who thinks of this stuff?
Does Tara Reid die that would be nice
It is like a train wreck. It is so bad that you can't turn your head away. It is kinda funny-bad. I think I will watch it like a comedy.
OH HAI MARK
hORRIBLE FILM WITH LOSUY ACTORS
DUH! Thats the whole point!
hORRIBLE CAPITALIZATION WITH LOSUY SPELLING
Horrible comment with lousy spelling. :)~
But it wasn't "so bad it's good". It was just plain bad. I fully expected all the parts involving sharks and tornadoes to be terrible but I was hoping the rest would have endearing traits to make up for it. Sort of like how Flash Gordon is the greatest movie ever made, despite the fact that it's technically "bad". But that didn't happen with Sharknado. It was just bad between two slices of bad, grilled in a light sauce of bad and worse.
I watched the second broadcast on TV and it wasn't all that bad. The plot was so outrageous that it made perfect sense.
Ok now they're just jumping the shark.
Pun absolutely intended.
Say what you will. This movie's catapult to the box office is a direct result of the Howard Stern Show.
"Say what you will..... " but it's a success...? How about this: "You Will Never Go Broke Underestimating the Intelligence of the American Public” – PT Barnum
Dude! Howard Stern Show? REALLY????
Since Stern jumped to satellite....he has DISAPPEARED from the culture.
You have GOT to be delusional to think that he has ANY influence any longer.
Yer one-a them hermasechsurals, aren'tcha, Pliny? I kin tell by yer writin'.
i would see this it looks funny
Her film is exactly what we expected.
still want the musician don't care if he can't act.
Say what you will, it was good.Better than most big budget disaster films.
And what rock have you been living under?
that was a good one
Welp than I guess it was nice knowing you^^ This movie is a must for people to see especially people that love Sci-Fi Movies.
