'Sharknado 2' heading to theaters for one night only

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - "Sharknado 2: The Second One" will be the second one to hit theaters after a stunning TV debut.

The SyFy original movie will be presented by Fathom Events for one night only on Aug. 21 at 8 p.m. local time across the country.

In addition to watching Tara Reid and Ian Ziering battle another herd of swirling sharks - this time ripping through New York City - audiences will be treated to an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the sequel to 2013 hit "Sharknado."

The limited theatrical release for "Sharknado" was a success a year ago. Theaters not only quickly sold out of tickets, but added more screenings to meet the demand for the made-for-TV movie that premiered to nearly 1.4 million total viewers.

"Sharknado 2" pulled in 3.9 million total viewers when it premiered last week. A third installment has already been greenlit.

[Editor's note: "Sharknado 2" will screen at United Artists Snowden Square in Columbia, Regal Bel Air Cinema Stadium 14 in Abingdon and more Maryland theaters. See fathomevents.com/event/the-second-one for the full list of participating theaters.]

    Review: 'Mr. Turner'

    Some films assert their rightness and sureness in the opening shot. Mike Leigh's excellent "Mr. Turner" is one of them, though Leigh and his inspired cinematographer, Dick Pope, are less concerned with conspicuous camera movement than with a charged sort of stillness. It's a beautiful film, and...

    Review: 'Strange Magic'

    There are good things in the animated musical fantasy "Strange Magic": the ultra-detailed, photorealistic animation; the name-that-tune pleasures of a mashup jukebox soundtrack; fine vocal performances from the cast's actor-singers; and a transcendent sequence featuring the 1975 title song.

  • 'Wedding Ringer' is a winner

    "The Wedding Ringer" is "Wedding Crashers Redux," a "Hangover Lite" that softens manic funnyman Kevin Hart's persona into someone almost as funny, but more sentimental than abrasive. That helps "Ringer" work as a bromantic comedy that feels like a romantic comedy.

    People will take what they want to take from "American Sniper," director Clint Eastwood's latest film. Already it has turned into an ideological war to be won or lost, rather than a fictionalized biopic to be debated.
