Sharknado was the surprise Syfy channel hit of last year, and became a bit of a phenomena, with everyone clamouring to watch it. Easily one of the cheesiest movies ever made, the film was an example of being one of those films that are so bad, it’s good.
The film starred American Pie actress Tara Reid and original Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering. The plot saw La experience a freak tornado storm, made all the worse after it sucked-up a gaggle of blood-thirsty sharks. Shortly after the resounding success became apparent, a sequel was announced days after the originals air date.
Ingeniously titled Sharknado 2: The Second One, the sequel will shift the story to New York. WWE wrestling star Kurt Angle is taking on one of the lead roles, whilst several other celebrities have been announced as having cameos, including the original pair, Kelly Osbourne and Perez Hilton. »

Sharknado 2: The Second One, the sequel to the summer 2013 hit Syfy TV movie, will premiere on the network July 31.
Sharknado 2 Gets Premiere Date
The Sharknado sequel has been spotted filming throughout New York City. Last month, returning star Ian Ziering shot a scene with Sharknado newcomer, Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath, on top of a cab in Times Square. Vivica A. Fox and Taxi star Judd Hirsch joined them for the scene in the center of the city.
American Pie actress Tara Reid is reprising her role of April Wexler in the reboot. In addition to McGrath, Fox and Hirsch, new faces will include Kelly Osbourne, Andy Dick and Judah Friedlander. Osbourne‘s character is a flight attendant, while Dick will be playing an NYPD cop.
When the behind-the-scenes indie filmmaking series Project Greenlight first aired in December of 2001 on HBO, producer Chris Moore had already made one Oscar-winning film (Good Will Hunting) and even had his own blockbuster franchise (the American Pie movies). But when the show hit airwaves, while his producing partners Ben Affleck and Matt Damon were the famous faces of the show, Moore himself became something he had never expected: a reality TV star. Project Greenlight, the first show to get eliminated in Vulture's reality TV bracket, which kicked off yesterday, detailed the process whereby a first-time writer and director, chosen through an online contest, was given a real budget and crew to make his or her first feature. Project Greenlight didn’t last long — just three seasons — and it may have just barely qualified as reality television anyway. Even today, Moore isn’t entirely comfortable using the term to describe »

Based on the best-selling memoir by Piper Kerman, Orange is the New Black stars Taylor Schilling (The Lucky One) as Piper Chapman, a Brooklynite who’s about to embark on a new business venture, selling custom candles, when her wild past with Alex Vause (Laura Prepon, The Kitchen) comes back to haunt her.
To pay her debt to society, Piper leaves behind her fiancee (Jason Biggs, American Reunion) and turns herself into a federal penitentiary, where she dons her orange jumpsuit and comes face to face with Alex as well as a cell full of eccentric inmates.
Every sentence has a story in the smash hit series Orange Is the New Black: Season One arriving on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital HD UltraViolet), DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet) and Digital HD May 13 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Hailed by critics as "magnificent and thoroughly engrossing" (Washington Post), the hugely popular dark comedy from Weeds creator Jenji Kohan broke viewing records for its premiere season. Starring Taylor Schilling (Argo, Stay) in a Golden Globe nominated performance, Orange Is the New Black also won "TV Program Of The Year" from the American Film Institute (AFI).
Based on the best-selling memoir by Piper Kerman, Orange Is the New Black also stars Jason Biggs (American Pie franchise), Laura Prepon (TV's That '70s Show), Kate Mulgrew (TV's Star Trek: Voyager, TV's Ntsf:sd:suv::), Pablo Schreiber (TV's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Showtime's Weeds), Natasha Lyonne (American Pie, G.B.F.), Taryn Manning (TV's Sons of Anarchy), Michael Harney (Showtime's Weeds, »
Why do people go into the woods at all? If horror movies have taught us anything it's that forests are full of beasts that will gladly terror you to ribbons. Friday the 13th gave us serial killers. Cabin in the Woods gave us Satanic undead hillbillies. Cabin Fever gave us a blood-curdling flesh-eating virus. Evil Dead gave us--well--evil dead. But still idiot twenty-somethings continue to frolic in the forests, and pay with blood. So, the next lesson in terror comes at the hands of Zombeavers. That's right: zombie beavers. Zombeavers. From the producers of Cabin Fever, The Ring and American Pie comes a creature feature squirming to make you scream with laughter. Entertainment Weekly (via Giant Freakin Robot) have offered us a glimpse behind the scenes of this bonkers B-movie, giving a close-up to its titular monsters. The image up top show Zombeavers star Lexi Atkins in between takes on »
There are plenty of awkward moments in film, especially in comedy. That makes sense because awkwardness, when intentional, is just pretty funny. Think of Ted getting his penis stuck in his zipper in There’s Something About Mary, the moments in American Pie when Jim’s father wants to talk about sex, or hell, most of the scenes in Meet The Parents. The recent comedy That Awkward Moment is even dedicated to the awkwardness of dating, even if it isn’t very good.
Not only comedy seems to be fond of awkwardness. It’s everywhere. An example many people would like to erase from their memory – Nicole Kidman masturbating in front of John Cusack in The Paperboy. Painfully awkward, but effective. People really dig awkwardness.
A scene can also be awkward while the director’s intention was to make it moving, sad, or shocking. Sometimes it’s awkward »

Models from the 2014 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition brought their beauty to our offices, and naturally we could barely turn away from their stunning good looks. And it seems like they can’t their eyes off each other either, because they’re totally into taking selfies! So how do the professionals capture the best seflies? Watch the video above and learn how it’s really done! If there’s anything Jason Biggs’ infant son has learned since he’s been in the world, it’s that his dad is the biggest over-sharer online. The American Pie actor and his wife posted photos from their son’s circumcision ceremony. Instead of learning the ABCs, »

Sid got snipped! Jason Biggs and his wife, Jenny Mollen, have revealed via Instagram that their son has been circumcised. In one pic, the American Pie star is all smiles. Understandably, the same can't be said for his little one, who received a loving kiss from Mommy. "Today was not a good day to be Sid's penis. #babybiggs #circumcision," the new mother captioned the photo. Another shot shows the family of three all wrapped up under a blanket, with Mollen writing, "Right after we decided not to bury the foreskin in our backyard for fear that Teets might find it and bring it into bed to sleep with us. That's so Teets!" Speaking of Teets, the cute canine and Sid »
The Iron Giant may not have been a box-office success upon its original 1999 release, but the animated film based in 1957 Maine has come to be loved and appreciated by many in the years since. The quirky, heartbreaking sci-fi tale pairs the beauty of its hand-drawn animation with a powerful message.
Hogarth (Eli Marienthal, American Pie) is a young boy in fictional coastal town Rockwell (presumably named after this Rockwell) who stumbles upon a ginormous alien machine one night. Hogarth befriends the giant, who has lost most of his memory, and attempts to pass knowledge on to the larger being. Harry Connick, Jr. figures into the voice cast as a hipster scrap metal collector/artist who supervises some of Hogarth and the giant's interactions.

The major studios may have shuttered their independent film banners, but studio digital divisions are starting to borrow some of the release strategies used to roll out smaller-budgeted movies.
After turning to Kickstarter to successfully raise over $5.7 million from more than 91,000 people for a feature-length adaptation of the WB-cw TV show, the studio has kept its promise, renting 270 theaters to show the film starting March 14. Most of those are operated by AMC, while 10 are independently-run screens.
But with a small but rabid fanbase, known as Marshmallows, for “Veronica Mars,” Warner Bros. and Thomas know they will make most of their money by renting and selling the film on video-on-demand and online platforms at the same time as the film plays in theaters. »

Zombeavers. It’s all in the title. And given that such a title excites us here at Dread Central (but not in a necrophilia-bestiality kind of way, we promise), we figured it was high time to sit down with director Jordan Rubin to get the skinny on his upcoming horror-comedy feature.
Starring Cortney Palm (Sushi Girl), Hutch Dano (Zeke and Luther), Peter Gilroy, Rachel Melvin (Dumb and Dumber To), Jake Weary, Lexi Atkins, and Bill Burr, Zombeavers was written by Jon Kaplan, Al Kaplan, and director Rubin.
It revolves around three college girls who go on a carefree vacation of drinking games, topless sunbathing, and sexual exploration, only to find that their frolicking fun comes to an abrupt end when toxic zombie beavers try to eat them.

Sharknado 2 Films In New York
While filming in "The Crossroads of the World" in the Big Apple, Ziering shot scenes with Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath on top of a yellow taxi. Also joining the guys on the hood of the cab were Vivica A. Fox and former Taxi star Judd Hirsch.
Sharknado 2: The Second One is the sequel to the surprisingly successful SyFy made-for-tv movie that came out last summer. The original movie, based in Los Angeles, was a hit with viewers. During the original airing on the network, Sharknado was the subject of 5,000 tweets per minute.
With the sequel, SyFy is moving the campy “natural” disaster epic across the country. "A freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, »
Netflix isn’t quite batting 1,000 with its original shows, but it’s doing far better than I bet they dared to hope, and Orange is the New Black is a big part of the reason. Following the announcement of the date the second season will be available, now you can also mark your calendar for the release of the first season on Blu-Ray, DVD, and digital. May 13th is the date (with digital outlets getting a week head start on the 6th), which gives you a couple of weeks to binge the season before… well, before you have to sign up for Netflix, I guess. Or, you could do that now, and have more time to watch.
Well, look, not everyone is going to sign up for Netflix, and those people want to watch the show everyone is talking about too. More importantly, the release comes with a lot of bonuses. »

Brandy Klark (Plaza) is an intellectually successful but socially inept student at an Idaho high school in 1993. This differentiates her starkly from her popular sister Amber (Bilson), who mocks Brandy for still being a virgin. Brandy protests that she almost slept with an older guy named Rusty (Scott Porter) once, but quickly realises that she will have to obtain greater experience soon or face further ridicule. She duly sets out to seduce Rusty by taking a job as a lifeguard at the pool where he works but faces several obstacles along the way. Can her fellow socially awkward friend Cameron (Simmons) help her out?
