The movie that took social media by storm has a sequel. Get ready for a first look at "Sharknado 2!"

Admit it, when we saw the preview for the first installment of the Syfy original movie "Sharknado," most of us chuckled and thought "how bad can these movies get?"

Yet, a lot of us watched. It was so bad it was good. The horrendous acting, the terrible effects and of course the ridiculous plot. Thanks mostly in part to Twitter, It became a phenomenon and a hit for the network. It did so well, that Syfy immediately started production on a sequel.

This time, the Sharknado has followed the cast from Los Angeles to New York City for Tara Reid’s book tour (not even kidding) to promote: How to Survive a Sharknado and Other Unnatural Disasters: Fight Back When Monsters and Mother Nature Attack. Oh yes, the book is available for purchase.

Sharknado 2 stars Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Vivica A. Fox, Kelly Osbourne, Judah Friedlander, Andy Dick, Billy Ray Cyrus, Mark “Sugar Ray” McGrath and many, many others.

The tagline of the movie says it all.

Forget the umbrella. Grab a chainsaw.

 

Sharknado 2 premieres July 30 on Syfy. Here's a first look at what to expect.
