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.]
