'Sharknado' Releases 'Star Wars'-Esque Poster for 'The 4th Awakens'
The poster for the latest installment of Syfy's Sharknado series has been released, and as is only appropriate for Star Wars Day, it might seem just a little familiar for anyone who happened to wander past a movie theater last December.
The familiar poster design follows the earlier reveal of the Star Wars-esque title of the movie, Sharknado: The 4th Awakens. (It could be worse. We could've had Revenge of The Fish.)
Following last year's Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, The 4th Awakens sees Ian Ziering, David Hasselhoff and Tara Reid return to the series, with the latter revealing the outcome of last year's social media campaign to decide whether her character lives or dies. New additions to the cast for the fourth outing include Gary Busey, Tommy Davidson, Imani Hakim and Cheryl Tiegs.
As always, the movie promises all manner of celebrity cameos, with Shark Tank's Robert Herjavec and Lori Greiner, The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Cynthia Bailey and Dancing with the Stars' Kym Johnson all showing up, alongside Baywatch's Gena Lee Nolin and Alexandra Paul.
Also making appearances will be Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Wayne Newton, Stacey Dash, Vince Neil, Dr. Drew Pinsky, The Howard Stern Show's Benjy Bronk, Dog the Bounty Hunter's Duane Chapman and The Millionaire Matchmaker herself, Patti Stanger.
Once again produced by The Asylum, Sharknado: The 4th Awakens is directed by Sharknado 3's Anthony C. Ferrante from a screenplay by Thunder Levin. It airs July 31 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy.
