Shark mechs, sharks flying through the effing sky with planes, sharks and Debbie Gibson: welcome to the Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark trailer from mockbuster studio the Asylum. The company is continuing to bank on its recent Sharknado craze with a tale about dueling sharks — because Asylum’s sharks have already battled a Crocosaurus and a giant octopus, so why the hell not. We’re still not sure why it took so long for the masses to discover the ridiculousness of movies like Sharknado, but the film became a social media sensation when it debuted on Syfy in July. The combination of Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering and party-girl disaster Tara Reid will be hard to beat, but we’re counting on former teen idol Gibson and Stargate...

On Saturday, July 11, a perfect storm hit Twitter in the form of Syfy’s original movie Sharknado, an L.A.-set “unnatural disaster” creature feature starring Beverly Hills 90210′s Ian Ziering and American Pie’s Tara Reid. With 387,000 total tweets, the film came within 2,500 tweets of tying Game of Thrones’ “Red Wedding” episode. Here, Syfy’s Evp of Programming and Original Movies, Thomas Vitale — who’s in the midst of developing a New York-set sequel to air in summer 2014 — explains how the phenomenon happened. And people still want to know: Vitale apologized for phoning EW late because, “I had a movie producer in here saying, »

It was revealed on Monday (Dec. 2) that Garth will release "Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde," a humorous tell-all that will cover her days filming the hit Fox series, her relationships with other cast members and her newly single life after splitting from Peter Facinelli.
While die-hard "90210" fans will have to wait until April 1, 2014, when the book is released, to find out just what dirt Garth spills about her glory days, there's certainly a few stories we're certain must be told.
1. The truth about her reported friction with diva co-star Shannen Doherty
Sure, the two have made up, even appearing on-screen together as their former characters during the first season of The CW's reboot, but, while they've skirted around the story of an alleged on-set skirmish, it's time Garth spill all about their former feud. »
The Sharknado juggernaut is carving out a path of destruction at this year's Afm, and we have the first good look at the artwork for Sharknado 2: The Second One Right Here!

"Live with Kelly and Michael" definitely did Halloween right. With the help of a few celebrity guest stars, Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan costumed the world of pop culture. Miley Cyrus (VMAs version and "Wrecking Ball"), "Breaking Bad," "Duck Dynasty," "Honey Boo Boo," "Sharknado" and more all made appearances.
Check out the costume photos and this full list of everything Kelly and Michael brought on stage.
The hosts did separate, music video-themed costumes after that. Kelly was still Miley, but this time she was on a "Wrecking Ball." Michael, meanwhile, portrayed Kanye West in his "Blood on the Leaves" video. Did you know there was a chicken dance in an early take of that one?

We don't know what was more upsetting in last night's The Walking Dead. The fact that zombies were literally falling from the sky, or that an entire aisle of wine was decimated in the process. People, there are no more vineyards. There are no more grapes. Can you imagine?! In case you missed it, and want to see how The Walking Dead's zombie deluge compared to SyFy's shark-tornado movie Sharknado when it comes to scary Sci Fi natural disasters, we have the video highlights of both for you. We know this is what you have been waiting for, and you are welcome! It wasn't sharks falling from the sky on Walking Dead, and Ian Ziering wasn't there, but Twd's zombie rain scene was still pretty epic »
★★☆☆☆ Every wondered what would happen should a tornado whip up a frenzy of sharks from the ocean and deposit them onto an unsuspecting American public? Well have no fear, as purveyors of Dtv schlock The Asylum have stepped up to answer that question in their imaginatively titled Syfy Channel feature, Sharknado (2013). Swimming with ropey special effects, groan-inducing dialogue and a narrative so ridiculous it makes the title seem run-of-the-mill, it's fun. "We shouldn't be afraid of the sharks. They're the ones that should be afraid of us," claims a snarling sea captain in the film's nefarious shark fishing opening.
The captain, of course, soon meets a grisly end courtesy of hundreds of razor sharp teeth and the action jumps to Los Angeles and an aptly-monickered protagonist, Fin (Ian Ziering); pro surfer and waterfront barman. When the storm, and a wave of black-eyed predators, hits the coast, Fin and a band »

When a freak tornado swamps Los Angeles, thousands of man-eating sharks are sucked into the swirling vortex, terrorizing the waterlogged populace and flooding the city with shark-infested seawater. Surfer and bar-owner Fin (Ziering) sets out with his friends Baz (Simmons) and Nova (Scerbo) to rescue his estranged wife April (Reid) and teenage daughter Claudia from the sharks raining down from the skies. With nature’s deadliest killer ruling sea, land, and air, they soon realise that the best chance they have to survive the deadly shark-infested maelstrom is to find a way to destroy it themselves.

It seems that White House Press Secretary Jay Carney isn’t a fan of “Sharknado.” When CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to slip a reference to the popular Syfy movie, in which tornadoes full of deadly sharks attack Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, into his question during Wednesday’s briefing, Carney seemed confused. “Are we looking at sort of a Gridlocknado, where we could have the government shutdown at the end of the month, and then go into default a couple of weeks later?” Acosta asked.

I suppose back-to-school, as a time of year, has some sell to it already – something to stuff in dorm boxes, and/or the kids are finally busy again, I have a minute to watch something – but, there’s a lot showing up this year, and the battle for your attention is going to be a big one.

The summer of North West, Amanda Bynes, Superman and foam fingers is coming to a close, and we thought we could use a little more eye candy to get us through the Labor Day weekend (all that sunshine and BBQ gets old after a while). But this isn’t just any eye candy.
These are the beautiful, sexy people who we totally didn’t expect to be the beautiful sexy people of the summer (for that, you can go back to the Bikini Awards posts). No, here we present to you the folks like Benedict Cumberbatch, Ian Ziering, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Tatiana Maslani, Taylor Schilling and more. Their talent, daring and Sharknado-battling skills made these slow months so much more exciting. Will their hotness continue on into the fall months? We can’t wait to find out! »

In preparation of the 38th anniversary of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, we give you a list of the top five must see cult films. By traditional measures (acting, coherent screenplay, special effects etc.) these movies are terrible. And yet they have some indefinable quality that makes people want to see them again and again. Each has spawned a dedicated fanbase, viewers who know every line by heart and engage in elaborate audience participation at midnight screenings. If there’s any on this list you haven’t seen– or haven’t seen recently- you’re depriving yourself. Call up your friends and schedule a viewing party right away!
The movie has a reputation for being the worst movie ever made. Written, directed and produced by Tommy Wiseau (who also is the star in the film), The Room is known for its terrible acting, poor production and dubbed-over dialogue. »

When TV shows proved popular in the past, networks would take old, favorite characters and launch them in new programs. If viewers liked “Alice,” so the theory went, they’d love “Flo.” If fans enjoyed “Grey’s Anatomy,” they’d go crazy for “Private Practice.”
Now some TV outlets have determined they can give viewers more of what they want without risking a fortune to do it. Who needs to invest in a scripted spinoff when all viewers really want is to hear chatter about their favorite program on an aftershow?
“In order for networks to be able to make these incredibly expensive dramas, they need to be able to make some programs at a lower cost,” said Michael Davies, president of Embassy Row, the Sony Pictures Entertainment shop behind “Talking Dead,” made for fans of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” which began as a half hour following the show, »

Look, I understand there was a lot of hype for Sharknado, but when I watched it, I couldn't wait for it to end. The movie was terrible in every way, and I don't think it even falls into the "so bad, it's good" territory. I didn't like the movie at all, but I know a lot of you did. It made for a great trailer, but that's it. I just think it was a waste.
Now they're making the sequel, which is even more of a waste! It will be called Sharknado 2: The Second One, and it will be released July of 2014.
I just don't like the fact that people are making poorly made movies on purpose. It's like, "Hey! Let's take a few million dollars and make a bad movie on purpose!" That just sounds like a terrible plan, especially when they could »
