As this satellite image from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration clearly shows, our nation’s capital was the target of a massive shark-shaped weather pattern this week—a real-life sharknado. We may never know how Washington DC and U.S. officials actually survived the sharknado, but it’s safe to assume that Nicolas Cage was somehow involved in personally intervening to keep the president safe ...

Look out Peter Jackson, there’s a new trilogy about to conquer Hollywood. The makers of Sharknado and Sharknado 2: The Second One, have announced that the (possible) final chapter is now in the works. And even though the film will be made-for-TV and air on the SyFy network, it will inevitably be the cause of a major financial blow to several competing studios who are unfortunate enough to also be releasing big budget features in the summer of 2015 like Batman vs. Superman, Jurassic Park IV, Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 2, Star Wars Episode VII and Pirates of the Caribbean 5. Sorry Hollywood, if there’s anything we’ve learned from the first two films, it’s that nothing can stand in the way of a Sharknado ... Discuss

Hoping to capitalize on the social media frenzy that is Sharknado, Regal Entertainment will be showing the SyFy Channel’s instant classic on the big screen on Aug. 2. And, for the first time ever, it sounds like they’ll actually be encouraging people to use their smart phones during the movie. In a statement, a Regal spokesperson said that the theater chain is “proud to be giving our guests this chance to fuel the social media whirlwind by inviting friends to come to the show and tweeting reactions.” On the surface, this sounds like a decent idea, but something about trying to manufacture a spontaneous Twitter event for a second time, seems a little fishy. It’s very possible that Sharknado is about to jump the shark … Discuss

Sharknado, the SyFy Channel film that recently took the Internet by storm (see what we did there?), is getting the most well-deserved sequel in the history of movies about shark-filled tornados. The movie, which is from the same filmmaker of classics like Mutant Vampire Zombies From the 'Hood!, was responsible for nearly 5,000 tweets per minute when it aired on Thursday night. Though there are currently few details about the plot of the sequel, screenwriter Thunder Levin told Mashable he has received several fan-suggestions. His favorite? SnailQuakeDiscuss

Just in case you were one of the millions of people who tuned into the SyFy Channel film Sharknado and immediately stocked up on a supply of shark-killing chainsaws, you may want to go ahead and return them to Home Depot. The good folks at AccuWeather have eased our national fear—according to “meteorology” and “science,” a horrific tornado comprised of man-eating sharks is unlikely to strike the city of Los Angeles as the film would have you believe. In this article, in which they “take the opportunity to debunk some of the more ridiculous aspects” of the made-for-TV movie, AccuWeather meteorologists, who obviously have nothing better to do, point out that a “tornado would not have the ability to sweep up marine life,” “California is relatively safe from these storms” and “climate change would have to continue exponentially for hundreds of years to create the conditions described in the film.” Thanks AccuWeather! You’ve put our fears to rest. We haven’t been able to sleep since Sharknado premiered … Discuss
