donald trump movie cameos

In a story that can only be published in the Year of Our Lord 2017, Donald Trump reportedly threatened to sue the producers of Sharknado 3 for casting Mark Cuban as their president instead of him. Yeah, you read that right.

It makes me wonder that if Trump had achieved his dream and been cast as president in SyFy’s schlocky disaster series, would that have put his presidential ambitions to rest? Is this his art school? Or would we just have gotten Mark Cuban running in 2016 instead? Who knows. But at least we were saved from one more Trump movie cameo in the process.

Rocko's Modern Life - Comic-Con TV Trailers

We’re still recovering from the insanity that is San Diego Comic-Con. Because there are so many movies and TV shows that get promoted at the massive pop culture convention, we simply don’t have the time to report on each and every one of them by attending all the panels that unfolded. But we still wanted to highlight some of the big shows with new footage to show off for fans.

So we’ve rounded up a slew of new trailers for upcoming TV shows, both returning and new programs, ranging from revivals of Nicktoons like Rocko’s Modern Life and Hey Arnold! to freshman shows like The Orville and Future Man, returning shows like Once Upon a Time and Doctor Who, and plenty more Comic-Con TV trailers from the 2017 convention.

Krypton trailer

Fans have been waiting to see the first official glimpse of the new Syfy series Krypton ever since it was first announced back in 2014. A trailer briefly made its way online earlier this year, but was quickly pulled down by the network. So if you weren’t part of the small group who managed to see that early preview, here’s your first look at the new Superman prequel series that follows the Man of Steel’s grandfather as he fights to save his family’s honor on his doomed planet.

Tremors TV

It’s been nearly two years since we’ve heard any updates about the Tremors TV show based on the cult classic sci-fi/horror monster movie, but now its star and executive producer has revealed that the project is not only still in the works, but it has finally found a cable network partner. Kevin Bacon, who starred in the original movie back in 1990 and will appear in the new TV sequel, says the pilot is heading to Syfy.

sharknado 5 global swarming

The Earth is round, gravity pulls you down, and there’s another Sharknado movie. Because why wouldn’t there be?

I’ll admit I’ve only watched one Sharknado movie while black out drunk I think it was Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! because I remember being upset that they cast Ann Coulter in the movie and didn’t kill her off but I get it, guys. I recall thinking at the time that Sharknado 3 was the best movie ever, and I’m pretty sure every Sharknado experience is like that. And now there’s a teaser for Sharknado 5 out, and the 20 seconds already point to it being another masterful movie about flying sharks.

Sharknado 5

The world was a much simpler place back in 2013 when the first Sharknado movie debuted on Syfy and took social media by storm. Remember the days when we’d gather around the digital campfire just to make fun of a cheesy movie, not to commiserate about the potential end of the world as we know it? Ah, good times.

Fast forward to 2017, though, and the unlikely franchise is somehow still swimming along. Now there are as many Sharknado movies as there are Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Sharknado 5: Global Swarming is the new official title for the fifth entry, and below we have a list of cameos that…well, I was going to say you wouldn’t believe some of these names, but if you’re the type of person who enjoys the Sharknado movies without irony (no judgment here), you’ll absolutely be able to believe these names.

the purge 3 trailer

The Purge and its sequels are built on a strong hook: what if, for one night each year, all crime was legalized and the citizens of the United States were allowed to murder and maim to their heart’s content? After two successful sequels (a fourth film is on the way), the series is looking to head to the small screen and now we know what the TV version will be about.

It will be about the the days when the Purge isn’t going on.

Blood Drive

This month marked the tenth anniversary of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse, an experiment the directors intended to replicate the experience of visiting a 1970s-style grindhouse theater. Although three spin-off movies have been made based on the fake trailers included in the presentation (Machete, Machete Kills, and Hobo with a Shotgun), Grindhouse flopped at the box office.

But now, a decade later, that spirit is being resurrected in a new Syfy series called Blood Drive. Are you ready for a show about cars that run on human blood? Buckle up.
