After destroying Los Angeles, New York, and Disney, the Sharknado, (maybe the biggest sinful pleasure in TV history), finally heads to Sin City. Later this month on SyFy, the fourth entry into the franchise heads to Las Vegas, Nevada where once again, Finn Shepard must save the world, or in this case, D-List celebrities from an array of flying sharks. Set to appear along star Ian Ziering are a who’s who of celebs including Carrot Top, Vince Neil of Motley Crue, outspoken right wing actress Stacey Dash, and of course, Vegas legend Wayne Newton.
Watch the preview videos below.
The big question going in is whether April (Tara Reid) is still alive after the cliffhanger ending of Sharknado 3. Well spoiler alert… yep, she’s back, and after introducing Bo Derek as her mom, we get to meet… are you ready… her scientist father played by Gary F’n Busey! The plot this time around (because that’s why you come to watch), is that a billionaire decided to make a shark-themed Vegas casino and a “sand-nado” (no, you can’t make this up) hits, triggering another shark-filled disaster. The technology designed to prevent sharknados did not take into account sand… God this is pure gold. And by the end, the sharknados go nuclear! Again, written and directed by the same team as the previous three, Anthony Ferrante and Thunder Levin, the sharknados continue to stalk the Shepard clan across the nation, from Kansas where the film opens five years after Sharknado 3, to San Francisco, to of course the climactic finale in Vegas.
“Tara Reid and I will probably win awards for this,” said co-star, the legendary David Hasselhoff. “I’m not sure what award we’ll win, but we’ll definitely win.” You know, I wouldn’t doubt the Hoff!
Sharknado: The 4th Awakens premieres on SyFy on Sunday, July 31st.
