- Tickets sold out for a theater screening of the first "Sharknado"
- The sequel nabbed 3.9 million viewers
Maybe you're a Sharknado super-fan. You watched both movies live. You bought the tie-in book. You even considered getting Tara Reid's Shark-themed perfume. Well, now there's a way to spend even more money and time on the Sharknado franchise.
The Wrap reports that Sharknado 2: The Second One will hit theaters for a one-night-only showing on August 21, 8 p.m. local time. The Syfy original movie will be presented in partnership with Fathom Events. Tickets are already available on their website.
This marks the second time that a Sharknado film has been propelled, like a deadly ocean predator in the midst of a freak weather event, into theaters. Tickets sold out for midnight showings of the first installment of the made-for-TV franchise in select Regal cinemas last year, prompting theaters to offer another set of screenings.
Sharknado 2: The Second One nabbed 3.9 million viewers on the night of its premiere, a record for Syfy original movies. As a comparison, the first Sharknado brought in 1.4 million viewers. Viewership data among sharks is not currently available.
