Sharknado 5 Global Swarming

Sharknado 5: Global Swarming
Directed by Anthony C Ferrante
Written by Thunder Levin, Scotty Mullen
Starring Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Cassandra Scerbo, Masiela Lusha, Cody Linley, Charo, Chris Kattan, Fabio, Olivia Newton-John
SyFy | Asylum Productions
Release Date: Sunday, August 6th, 2017, 8:00pm ET

The most wonderful time of the summer is upon us; it’s Sharknado Time! Back in 2013, the Asylum produced the first Sharknado and it “stormed” social media and became an overnight sensation. Here we are, 4 films later ready for the fifth installment of the franchise that helped resurrect the careers of Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. These films are very dear to me, as this marks my 4-year anniversary writing and reviewing for Geeks of Doom. The Sharknado franchise checks all the boxes: sharks, disaster movies, celebrity cameos, hilariously awful special effects… in other words, it’s event TV. This time, the ‘nado has gone global!

Let’s be real, reviewing Sharknado 5: Global Swarming in the same way you review other films or television series it just pointless. You knew years ago from the title alone if these movies were for you. This is now an annual American event, like Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. Fans gather to watch the ridiculousness, laugh at the cameos, and see what crazy stuff the creators come up with next.

Sharknado 5 Global Swarming

It’s summer, it was just Shark Week, so it must be time for another Sharknado! Syfy channel’s annual event is soon approaching and this time, the ‘nados are going all over the planet, hitting some of the biggest cities with the largest populations of people aka bait. Whereas the 2013 original from The Asylum focused the hilarious weather phenomenon over Los Angeles, and its sequel went east to New York, things got out of hand quickly, heading to outer space by the time we got to sequels 3 and 4. This time, the jokes seems to edge political, with its title: Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, and its catchphrase, “Make America Bait Again.” No one and nowhere is off limits this time including the Queen of England (Charo), the Prime Minister (Chris Kattan), and the Pope (Fabio)!

Interview With The ‘Sharknado’ Series’ Baddest Momma – Tara Reid
Dr. Zaius   |  

Tara Reid Sharknado

It’s Summer! That means sun, beaches, blockbuster movies, and of course… shark infested tornadoes! That’s right, it’s time for another Sharknado! Back in 2013, the original Syfy channel film from the schlock studio kings The Asylum debuted, and became an instant hit on social media developing a huge following on twitter. The film’s two big stars were 90s icons Ian Ziering (90210) as Fin Shepard and Tara Reid (American Pie) as his ex-wife April Wexler. The craze around the first film has led to a new sequel each year since then, each one more ridiculous than the one before, and each featuring more and more celebrity cameos. The Sharknado films have taken these characters to space and back, across the United States, and now in the 5th installment, Global Swarming, around the world. Geeks of Doom got a chance to speak with April herself, Tara Reid, to discuss the upcoming Sharknado film, the franchise and her career.

Check out the interview below.

Sharknado 5

Topical political satire is the trendy thing. Even Netflix’s House of Cards felt cut and pasted out of the newspaper headlines. So with climate change on everyone’s mind, and the same week President Donald Trump withdrew from the Paris Accords, we now get the brand new title for SyFy’s newest entry in the “in”famous Sharknado series… Sharknado 5: Global Swarming! The fifth film will debut on SyFy channel on August 6th, carrying the tagline, “Make America Bait Again.”

‘Sharknado 4’ Is Happening; Fans Decide If Tara Reid’s Character Lives Or Dies
The Movie God   |  

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!

That’s right, folks, after Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! premiered last night (read our review right here), and at the end of the movie-ish mish-mash of moving imagery it was revealed that Sharknado 4 is indeed on the way. You’re not at all shocked, are you? I can feel it. I can feel your lack of shock radiating from my computer screen right now, long before this is fully written and any other human eyes read it. But hey, when one of these wacky, nonsensical carnival freak show productions Syfy and The Asylum are known for catches on as big as the Sharknado movies have, they’re going to make as many of them as they possibly can.

The announcement came with a bit of a twist, as well. At the end of Sharknado 3 (spoiler alert…I guess), some space shuttle wreckage is heading right for April Wexler (played by Tara Reid) before it cuts to black. This is where the fans come in, as they’ll use the hashtags #AprilLives or #AprilDies to decided whether the character will survive in Sharknado 4.

The cast and crew talked about the ending, including Reid and co-star Ian Ziering. You can see what they had to say below.

The day is here, the time is now… it’s time for SHARKNADO 3!!! This actually means a lot more to me than the normal schmo watching Syfy original movies. Last year around this time, Sharknado 2: The Second One was my first review for GoD. The movie that became a twitter sensation thanks to its ridiculous (even for Syfy) title and plot, helping to resurrected the careers for 90s stars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. It gained such a quick cult status that A – D list stars, including athletes, talk show hosts, rappers, and politicians were lining up for cameos in the sequels. Without further ado… the day we’ve all waited patiently for… Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!

Sharknado 3 Trailer

The Summer of the Shark continues! Weeks after Discovery Channel finished up another thrilling Shark Week, and days after World Champion surfer Mitch Fanning got attacked by a Great White ON CAMERA, it’s finally time to culminate the greatest trilogy ever… that’s right… it’s SHARKNADO TIME!!! In preparation for Wednesday night’s debut of Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No, Syfy is running the gamut of its giant, mutant, sea creature movies in marathon form. Titles such as Sharktopus vs. Whalewolf, Zombie Shark, 3-Headed Shark Attack, and Mega Shark Vs Kolossus will help you beat the summer heat on the couch. Just grab some friends and lotsa beer.

‘Sharknado 3’: Behind The Sharks (Video)

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! Header

Sharks! Sharks everywhere! If I could’ve bought stock in shark before this summer, I’d be rich right now. First Jaws, the original summer blockbuster turned 40. Coincidentally, or maybe not, there were numerous shark attacks reported in the Carolina area making national news. And of course, we are smack-dab in the middle of Discovery Channel’s annual smorgasbord of shark related science (and occasional fiction) known as Shark Week.

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! could not have picked a better time to come out. Now we get a couple of “behind the shark” videos to prep us for the oncoming storms.

Check out both videos below.

Sharknado 2: The Second One
Directed by Anthony C Ferrante
Written by Thunder Levin
Starring Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Vivica A. Fox, and Mark McGrath
SyFy | Asylum Productions
Rated TV 14 | 86 Minutes
Release Date: July 30, 2014

“They’re sharks, they’re scary. No one wants to be eaten. I’ve been eaten, and I’m here to tell ya, it takes more than that to keep a good man down!”

You know a movie is a certain type of special when it begins with a shark attack on an airplane. Welcome back to the world of Sharknado! Capitalizing on the Discovery Channel’s money grab “Shark Week,” SyFy’s Asylum Productions hit gold with 2013’s Sharknado. Since Jaws in 1975, sharks have captivated American audiences and no one in recent years has profited more than SyFy channel, which has produced countless “epic” shark films including Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, Ghost Shark, and last year’s Sharknado, a film about ferocious storms sweeping up all types of monster sharks and sending them flying into coastal California.

Following the mantra of “go big or go home,” Sharknado 2: The Second One begins with the titular weather event arriving in New York at the same time as Finn Shephard and April Wexler (Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, respectively), our heroes from part 1. He is a Sharknado celebrity and is immediately called upon to save the city from the horrors of flying CGI Great Whites.
