Celebrate the return of Shark Week with “Sharknado 2”
Shark Week has arrived, and it’s bigger and toothier than ever. Flick to the Discovery Channel and you’ll be attacked with enough random facts about our ancient, boneless and electro-receptive friends to make anybody an expert. It may even tempt you to throw on some scuba gear, adopt an Australian accent and go find one. I don’t advise that.
If you want the thrill but have basic common sense that prevents you from getting into the water with one of the world’s most feared predators, then the East Ridge 18 Cinemas has the solution: “Sharknado 2: The Second One”’ Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
“Sharknado” was first released in 2013, and was so outlandish that it became an instant cult classic. Its sequel is based on the same tornado-leads-to-massive-shark-outbreak storyline. Why fix something when it isn’t broken? Husband and ex-wife team Finn and April also return, and are en route to promote their new book, How To Survive a Sharknado, when the inevitable ensues. Oh, the murderous irony! This time, however, it’s New York City’s turn. And nothing is safe, not even its famous landmarks.
