Last summer, fans couldn’t stop talking about the SyFy Channel’s cheesy film “Sharknado.” It’s popularity has spawned a well-deserved cheesy sequel. So back in February, we announced that “Sharknado 2: The Second One” was set to start filming in New York. Now, the SyFy Channel has made it official, “Sharknado 2 will air on July 30th. Coincidentally, this comes the week after San Diego’s Comic-Con. So, no doubt the cable channel will push the hype for their star-studded sequel to the limit at the convention. To celebrate this momentous occasion, SyFy has released a first look at the official “Sharknado 2: The Second One” poster. One can’t help but wonder if this was inspired by J.J. Abrams’ famous one-sheet for his giant monster classic “Cloverfield.” Check it out!
