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” Ian 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.

Machete Kills (9)

3D trailers are great if you’re watching them in a 3D movie theater with your 3D glasses on, but so-called 3D trailers on the Internet usually aren’t anything special. Since the effects don’t work on our computers, most “3D trailers” just turn out to be 2D trailers with action-packed scenes that we can sorta-kinda picture looking exciting in 3D.

But leave it to Robert Rodriguez‘s gleefully over-the-top Machete Kills to go over-the-top with its 3D Internet trailer. No, not even the world’s toughest ex-Federale can make your laptop suddenly support 3D technology. But he can offer a video with explosions so big, they can’t be contained by your average video player. See what we mean after the jump.

Ghost Shark

Syfy sees your enthusiasm for shark-related B-movies, and is doubling down with more of the same. Next on the cable channel’s schedule is Ghost Shark, which is exactly what it sounds like.

The first clip offered but a tiny taste of this new monster’s fearsome abilities, but this new full-length trailer really shows off what he (she? it? Let’s just go with “he” for simplicity’s sake) can do. Hit the jump to find out what exactly that entails.

Robert Rodriguez sure seems to have a soft spot for PR-challenged celebs. 2010′s Machete saw him working with a notoriously troubled Lindsay Lohan, and for its sequel Machete Kills, Rodriguez is upping the ante with not one but two recovering trainwrecks.

Mel Gibson has been signed on to play a “Bond-style villain” since April, and now Charlie Sheen has signed on to play one of the apparent good guys — specifically, the president of the United States. Rodriguez himself made the announcement this week, along with a few snapshots from the set. Flip through the photos and read about Sheen’s casting after the jump.

Troma Entertainment may be famous for its low-budget, independent approach to filmmaking, but the B-movie house isn’t averse to the big-money kind, either. Last year saw the Fantastic Fest premiere of the Brett Ratner-produced Mother’s Day remake, as well as the announcement of a Toxic Avenger reimaginging by to be produced by Akiva Goldsman and directed by Steven Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine). Now comes news that the studio is interested in doing still more remakes, and is currently in negotiations to sell the rights to Class of Nuke ‘Em High and Poultrygeist. Read more after the jump.

The whole tongue-in-cheek, gory, B-movie grindhouse thing is so played out these days. How many ways can you film the explosion of the human head or the mutilation of a body part, really? Before Hobo With A Shotgun, I would have said there was some sort of ceiling to that kind of carnage. But co-writer and director Jason Eisener has come up with so many new, creative ways to destroy the human body (and insane dialogue to go along with it) that, I dare say, he’s taken the tongue-in-cheek, gory, B-movie grindhouse thing to a whole new level. Hobo With A Shotgun is so incredibly over the top with its excess, fans of this genre are going to be bowing to it. Read More »
