“Sharknado 3” has released the behind-the-scenes featurette that surely somebody was waiting for.
One year after Ian Ziering‘s Fin Shepard saved New York City from the last batch of Sharknados, the frenzied fish storms are attacking the entire Eastern Seaboard. This time around, the tornados full of sharks are even merging with other storms — Sharkicanes, per new star Frankie Muniz — and heading inland.
As such, the scope is far larger than “Sharknado 3’s” more localized predecessors.
“We get to do a whole bunch of mini-movies within our movie,” director Anthony C. Ferrante says in the peek behind the curtain. “We’re basically doing ‘White House Down’ with sharks at the beginning of the film.”
Later, Ziering explains why the “Sharknado” franchise is truly family entertainment. He then adds this claim: “We’re not only knocking it out of the park, we’re knocking it out of the world.”
The Asylum’s “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” also features Tara Reid, Holly Madison, Mark Cuban, Cassie Scerbo, Bo Derek, David Hasselhoff, Jack Griffo, Kendra Wilkinson, Rick Fox, Ryan Newman, Cindy Margolis, Penn Jillette, Chris Jericho, Jerry Springer, Chris Kirkpatrick, Ann Coulter and Michele Bachmann.
“Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” premieres Wednesday, July 22 at 9 p.m. on Syfy.
