Behold the dreaded dragon-sharks in the full trailer for final Sharknado movie

SHARKNADO 6 "Shark VS T-Rex" Trailer (NEW 2018) The Last Sharknado Movie HD

SyFy will end its campy cult Sharknado franchise when The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time premieres August 19. As the title implies, this installment will be about time travel, as intrepid hero Fin (Ian Ziering) tries to undo all the havoc he has wrought since the first movie in 2013.

A full-length trailer for the movie was released August 17. We’ve already seen the teaser, which gave us a look at the bizarre time-travel theme of the latest fil,. However, this new trailer also gives us a look at something even more absurd than sharks in tornadoes. Namely, shark-dragon hybrids, which is fitting considering part of the movie appears to take place in a medieval era.

As you may recall from the end of the last film, Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, Fin was left alone wandering the Earth after a global sharkpocalypse. Bloody Disgusting revealed some plot details for the upcoming adventure back in February: “All is lost, or is it? Fin unlocks the time-traveling power of the Sharknadoes in order to save the world and resurrect his family. In his quest, Fin fights Nazis, dinosaurs, knights, and even takes a ride on Noah’s Ark. This time, it’s not how to stop the sharknadoes, it’s when.”

Series regulars Tara Reid, Cassie Scerbo, and Vivica A. Fox will be along for the ride, with veteran Sharknado director Anthony C. Ferrante at the helm. According to Geek Tyrant, guest stars this time around will include Tori Spelling, Dean McDermott, La Toya Jackson, Dee Snider, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Alaska, and Darrell Hammond.

The series has always embraced its cheesy effects and low production values, but later entries in the franchise have attracted cameos from a variety of celebrities and public figures such as Mark Cuban, Ann Coulter, Jerry Springer, Wayne Newton, Gary Busey, and David Hasselhoff. The first Sharknado in 2013 became a social media sensation, and the sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, pulled in 3.9 million total viewers, according to TV Line. Since then, we’ve been treated to Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! and Sharknado: The 4th Awakens, but viewership has steadily declined, dropping to 1.89 million for last year’s installment.

SyFy will celebrate the premiere with a week of themed programming appropriately dubbed Sharknado Week. Along with all five movies in the series, you can enjoy cinematic masterpieces such as Nightmare Shark, 6-Headed Shark Attack, and Deep Blue Sea 2.

The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time will premiere on SyFy at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday, August 19, so set your DVRs accordingly.

How to watch Gervonta Davis vs Frank Martin live stream: PPV cost, time, and more
Davis, Martin, Benavidez and Gvozdyk on a promotional poster.

Gervonta "Tank" Davis (29-0, 27 KOs) is making his long awaited return to the ring this weekend. In June of 2023 he got a decisive win over Ryan Garcia in the highest-selling PPV event since Mayweather-McGregor. Garcia took a knee after a crippling liver shot and couldn't beat the count. Davis has since spent a short stint in prison, which calls into question his readiness for the fight. Frank Martin (18-0, 12 KOs) is undefeated and may try to take advantage of Davis' long layoff.

The co-feature fight sees David Benavidez (28-0, 24 KOs), the undefeated super middleweight who has long sought a fight with Canelo Alvarez, step up to the light heavyweight division and challenge Oleksandr Gvozdyk (20-1, 16 KOs) for the WBC Interim belt. Gvozdyk's only defeat was to Artur Beterbiev, another potential opponent for Benavidez if he wins tonight and decides to stay in the light heavyweight division.
