Sharknado 5

Sharknado 5: Official Title, Cast List (Clay Aiken?!) Revealed

The annual comedy-horror show known as the Tara Reid Press Tour Sharknado is about to wash ashore.

Syfy on Thursday announced the official title, tagline and cast list for the fifth installment of its seafaring camptastrophe, which will make landfall on Sunday, Aug. 6 at 8/7c.

Underscoring its international theme, the latest sequel will be titled Sharknado 5: Global Swarming. Curiously, the Trump-inspired tagline — “Make America Bait Again!” —is decidedly U.S.-centric.

In chapter 5, “the mission gets personal for Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and his bionic wife, April (Tara Reid) when their young son gets trapped in a traveling ‘nado and transported all over the world. From London to Rio, Tokyo, Rome, Amsterdam and beyond, our globetrotting heroes will seek assistance from a highly-skilled squad of royals, scholars and Olympians, enlisting famous faces from news, entertainment, and sports in their most epic battle yet.”

The list of cameos is as eclectic as ever. Global Swarming will feature appearances by Fabio (as the Pope), Tony Hawk (as a masterful weapons operative strategist), Clay Aiken (as a cutting edge technology genius), Margaret Cho (as a fussy bride whose honeymoon is interrupted by sharks), Charo (as the Queen of England), and the list goes on.

    *sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhh* I’m out this time. The last two were too stupid.

    • Michael McGee says:

      too stupid? Like the first ones weren’t?

    • Mac says:

      The stupidity is why I watch. The first one was boringly grounded while 2-4 were hilariously insane

    • AngelWasHere says:

      The first one was meh, but amusing. The 2ND one was stupid funny to the point I was in tears by the end of it. 3 and 4 were just not funny. Too stupid to be funny almost. That’s just my opinion tho. Enjoy 5!

    I guess the thing with these Sharknado movies is to be as completely over the top ridiculous as possible?
    However, I might watch just for Clay as the tech genius. Probably record and just FF to his scene(s).

    Oh hell yes

    Awww, I was hoping for “Five For Biting”

  7. Sharknado 5 was actually rather enjoyable, looking forward to Sharknado 6 next year!
