U.S. President Mark Cuban gets gun-happy in teaser for Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No

Skarknado 3: Oh Hell No! - Wednesday July 22nd 9/8c | Syfy
Just when you thought the skies were free of airborne apex predators, Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! comes along to remind you that you are never, ever safe from shark-filled meteorological events — even if you live in the nation’s capital.

This week, SyFy released the first teaser for the upcoming television movie that will turn the Sharknado franchise into a bona fide trilogy. And along with the requisite shots of flying sharks, the teaser also features a few scenes with some of the film’s celebrity cameos, most notably entrepreneur and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban as the U.S. President.

Given what we’re shown in the teaser, Cuban’s version of the U.S. President doesn’t seem to shy away from taking up arms to defend the White House from the threat of flying sharks.

Where previous installments of the franchise have chronicled the historic clash between man and storm-riding shark in Los Angeles (Sharknado) and New York City (Sharknado 2: The Second One), the third film brings the battle to Washington, D.C. before churning its way down the East Coast.

Franchise stars Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, and Cassie Scerbo return for Sharknado 3, and they’re joined by a long list of familiar faces in supporting roles and cameo appearances. Along with Cuban, the new additions to the Sharknado family include David Hasselhoff, Bo Derek, Ann Coulter (playing the Vice President of the U.S.), Michele Bachmann, Jerry Springer, *NSYNC singer Chris Kirkpatrick, and professional wrestler Chris Jericho.

Like its predecessors, Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! will be directed by Anthony C. Ferrante.

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! premieres Wednesday, July 22 at 9:00 p.m. EST on SyFy. The film will be broadcast across all Syfy channels around the world — including channels in the UK, Australia, Asia, and Latin America — within 24 hours of its U.S. debut.

And while you’re watching the film, make sure to keep in mind one very important question posed by the third installment of the Sharknado franchise. Who would win in a fight: Mark Cuban’s gun-toting, shark-killing U.S. President or Bill Pullman’s fighter-pilot president in Independence Day? (Be prepared to show your work).

8 most surprising TV show cancellations of 2023
Jon Stewart talking passionately with guests in a scene from The Problem with Jon Stewart.

Some shows run their course and come to a natural end. Among the ones that fell into that category this year are Sex Education, Doom Patrol, and Reservation Dogs. Other shows are canceled to no one’s surprise. The most notable of those shows this year is The Idol, which was marred with controversy from the get-go. Sometimes, shows are canceled and revived due to fan pushback, like Warrior Nun, which was canceled in December 2022 after two seasons, but will be brought back as a film trilogy.

It really catches fans off guard when a show cancellation happens even when the series is well received and hasn't had the chance to resolve its stories. The reasons run the gamut, from low viewership to high production costs and other issues behind the scenes. This year, a few shows may have become victims of the writer’s strike. Whatever the case, these eight show cancellations in 2023 were surprising. Interestingly, while Netflix is notorious for prematurely canceling shows fans love, none of the shows on this list are from that streaming service.

10 best sci-fi TV characters ever, ranked
An older Picard looks concerned in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

While you may not think of genre storytelling as the most fertile ground for developing fascinating, complex characters, sci-fi TV proves the two don't have to be mutually exclusive. Over the long history of sci-fi on television, we've gotten a number of hugely compelling characters who have grown and changed over the course of seasons and years.

Whether these characters are human, alien, or something else entirely, each one of them has compelled us, and sometimes, they've even managed to worm their way into our hearts forever.
