'Sharknado 2' is coming to theaters in August after Syfy success
According to The Wrap, "Sharknado 2" will hit theaters Aug. 21 at 8 p.m. local time. In addition to the movie itself -- which really ought to be enough for anyone -- those in the audience will get to watch an exclusive, behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of the movie.
This marks the second theatrical release for the "Sharknado" series. The original movie sold out in midnight viewings during the summer of 2013 after a run of TV airings that eventually brought in several million viewers (1.4 million tuned in for the premiere).
It's hard to say if "Sharknado 2" will have the same box-office draw as its predecessor. The New York-based disaster flick had almost 4 million viewers when it hit Syfy on Wednesday, July 30. "Sharknado 3" is expected at some point in 2015.
