Sharknado 3

Syfy stumbled into a monster hit with Sharknado, a joke of a thriller created by The Asylumn — a company best known for their mockbuster direct-to-video b-movies starring c-level stars. The ridiculous concept of Sharknado took the twittosphere by storm (pun intended) and has, like it or not, now become a modern cult classic. A sequel was quickly announced, and Sharknado 2: The Second One is set to air on Syfy on Wednesday, July 30 at 9/8c. But it doesn’t stop there, The Asylum and Syfy want to make it a trilogy, today announcing that Sharknado 3 will be released in Summer 2015. No word on a title or if “stars”┬áIan Ziering and Tara Reid will return.

The first film destroyed Los Angeles and the sequel is set in New York City, but we don’t know which city will be destroyed in the third installment. We only know that the story will be set in a new city. One would assume that the movie needs to be set in a big city near a ocean. Possible options include Atlantic City, Miami, Palm Beach, Honolulu, Orlando and many others. New Orleans might be in very bad taste. Its also possible the series could go international with the third film. Read the full press release after the jump, and let the speculation begin.

Have you ever noticed that a lot of those crappy mockbuster movies have a title that begin with the letters A, B, C or D? Me neither, but now that Gizmodo mentioned it, it does seem a bit strange. Find out the answer after the jump.

LOL: Asylum’s ‘Almighty Thor’ Trailer

Yesterday we showed you the VW knock-off ad Little Thor and some of you weren’t amused. Fair enough, but let’s try again. Here’s the trailer for Almighty Thor, a film from Asylum that tells of an Earth-bound conflict between the Almighty Thor and Loki. At least, I think it is on Earth…aside from a few shots where we see extras running from the conflict, this movie appears to feature only about five actors. And one of them is Richard Grieco, naturally playing Loki. Check it out after the break. Read More »

the termiantors
The Asylum, a direct-to-dvd production company responsible for producing cheap knock-offs of the latest big budget Hollywood movies (termed “Knockbusters) takes on Terminator Salvation with a movie titled The Terminators. The Asylum’s past titles include: Street Racer , Sunday School Musical , Transmorphers, Snakes on a Train, I Am Omega, Da Vinci Treasure, Temple of the Skulls, HG Wells’ War of the Worlds, AVH: Alien vs. Hunter, Monster (the Cloverfield rip) and Pirates of Treasure Island.

The movie, which will be released direct to DVD on April 28th (around the same time that Terminator Salvation hits theaters), follows the story of “a small band of resistance fighters battle the cyborgs that have taken control of the planet.” Wow, sounds familuar, doesn’t it? The film stars Jeremy London, best known as TS from Kevin Smith’s Mallrats, the tv shows Party of Five and 7th Heaven. No trailer has yet been released, but I’m sure when one s, it will be funnier than a Uwe Boll movie. Thanks to /Film reader averyguerra for the tip.

LOL: The Asylum’s Sunday School Musical

For those who don’t know, The Asylum is a direct-to-dvd production company responsible for producing cheap knock-offs of the latest big budget Hollywood movies (termed “Knockbusters). For example their films have included: Transmorphers, Snakes on a Train, I Am Omega, Da Vinci Treasure, Temple of the Skulls, HG Wells’ War of the Worlds, AVH: Alien vs. Hunter, Monster (the Cloverfield rip) and Pirates of Treasure Island.

Their latest effort is a knock off of Disney’s High School Musical called Sunday School Musical. The poster (and by poster, I mean the DVD cover art) instantly made me laugh. On the other hand, the trailer, available online at this link, is not funny. Actually, it’s rather depressing. But that always seems to be the case with The Asylum’s productions. I love the idea of a stupid knock off, but the actual films are kidn of depressing. I think I’d rather The Asylum take the Troma approach and create some fun really bad B-movies rather than what it is they actual do. But as long as they keep producing movies, I’ll keep laughing at the names and cover art. I’m pretty sure that will never get old.
