'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.]

    Don't underestimate Robert Kenner's "Merchants of Doubt." It may sound like a standard-issue advocacy documentary concerned, as so many are, with the perils of global warming, but it's a lot more than that.

    The cuddliest alien invasion movie ever, "Home" contains nifty turns of phrase and some actual, verifiable verbal wit, owing in large part to its source material, Adam Rex's 2007 children's book "The True Meaning of Smekday."

    Review: 'Get Hard'

    An awful lot of "Get Hard" depends on gay-panic humor of a weirdly squirmy and dated sort, making you wonder if this new Will Ferrell/Kevin Hart mystery might best be viewed alongside reissues of "Cruising" and "Norman … Is That You?"
