Sharknado 4 Trailer Has Strippers Fighting Sharks in Las Vegas

1 June 2016 5:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After invading both the West and East Coasts in the first three movies, the Sharknado sensation is heading to the Las Vegas desert in Sharknado: The 4th Awakens. Last month, Syfy took advantage of Star Wars Day (May 4) to debut a new, yet very familiar poster for this sequel, which spoofed last year's blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens. With just under two months left until this sequel debuts, the network has debuted a new trailer, which shows how some of Sin City's finest strippers and Elvis impersonators defend themselves from this onslaught of sharks.

Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and April Wexler (Tara Reid) reprise their roles from the first three Sharknado movies, with Gary Busey signing on to play April's father. Sharknado: The 4th Awakens takes place five years after the East Coast was ravaged in last summer's Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!. Fin (Ziering »

Starting with footage of the controversial comic from his arena-filling heyday, the series proceeds to introduce him, not very imaginatively, as a slightly worn-down version of himself, eking out a living while enduring various indignities in the colorful confines of Las Vegas. The show has its moments, spread over six episodes, but as showbiz perches goes, this one is hardly the top of the world, ma.

Dice” presents Clay as an insecure and misunderstood funny man, one who seldom misses an opportunity to remind people that he’s Andrew, not the boorish guy he played on stage. Eschewing much of a support system, in terms of series regulars, the show flanks him only with a live-in girlfriend (played by comic Natasha Leggero, who deserves better »
