Familiar "Sharknado: The 4th Awakens" Poster
The Syfy Channel and The Asylum are gearing up for the fourth chapter in their "Sharknado" series of films. They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery and there was no better time than May the Fourth Be With You Day to debut the poster art for "Sharknado: The 4th Awakens." As you can see from the image above, there's a lot borrowed from a pretty famous poster for a little movie called "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
The title of the new sequel and the look of its poster will come as no surprise to anyone who keeps up with The Asylum's low-budget mockbusters, which are usually released within days of their big-budget counterparts. For example, how about "Battle for Los Angeles" hitting DVD shelves a few days before or after "Battle: Los Angeles." Wal-marts were stocked full of "American Warships" right around the same time "Battleship" hit multiplexes around the world. "Star Wars" fans should take it as a tribute to the greatest space saga of all time.
"Sharknado: The 4th Awakens" picks up five years after the events of "Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!," in which shark-infested tornadoes destroyed the “Feast Coast” (that is, the East Coast). Fin (Ian Ziering) and his family have been enjoying a blissful sharknado-free existence, but all of a sudden these freakish weather events start popping up in unexpected places. This sharknado could be the last for Tara Reid‘s April, as Syfy is inviting fans to vote whether #AprilLives or #AprilDies.
