A decade after becoming an unexpected breakout hit on the SyFy Channel, spawning a low-budget B-movie franchise in the process, Shark – in which Tara Reid, Ian Ziering and John Heard battle a tornado that spits out white people and hammerheads and spews them over Los Angeles – is set to hit cinemas for the first time as part of a two-day 10th anniversary celebration.

And to help promote the return of its most famous creation, producers at The Asylum, not unlike their infamous series of fake titles, have turned to the current film for some inspiration. In another exclusive poster released exclusively by The Hollywood Reporter, Shark given a Barbie twist, with Barbie seen driving her pink convertible into a pink hurricane shaking killer sharks (some pink) out of the sky, and Ken wielding a chainsaw. It doesn’t look like this came courtesy of Mattel.

The “fully reformed” version of Shark will be released on August 15th and 16th and will reportedly feature hundreds of new special effects, including “new kills” and “new thrills” according to the trailer. “More sharks, more nado,” he announces proudly.

In a detailed oral history Shark released in 2018, the creative team behind the film, including director Anthony C. Ferrante, explained how it began life as a throwaway line in another low-budget feature (about a murderous leprechaun) that ended in a pitch session during the American Film Market. Not expected to go anywhere, on July 13 the $1 million film suddenly became an overnight cultural phenomenon on the SyFy channel, leading to five sequels and a Las Vegas musical , cementing The Asylum’s name in B-movie infamy.
