We may still be waiting for Marvel to announce the official title of ‘Avengers 4’, but thanks to Syfy we now know what the biggest film of this year will be called! That’s right! The masterpiece in the making formerly known as ‘Sharknado 6’ finally has its title, and it doesn’t disappoint.
With the release of the first teaser, Syfy has confirmed the title for the sixth and final ‘Sharknado’ installment: ‘The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time’. Like any truly inspired title, this one works on multiple levels. The title itself (‘The Last Sharknado’) is simply descriptive. It is a ‘Sharknado’, and as was announced several months ago, serves to put this whole thing to bed. The real meat is in the subtitle, ‘It’s About Time’. The most obvious reading is as a reference to the series’ looming end, and the suggestion that maybe it’s gone on for too long. On another level, however, it also hints at the film’s plot. If you’ve been following the news, you may know that ‘The Last Sharknado’ features a time travel plot – just when you thought these movies couldn’t get crazier. Hence the subtitle, ‘It’s About Time’. It quite literally is.
Check out the teaser here:
The official synopsis for ‘The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time’ reads as follows:
“Our hero Fin has battled sharks all over the globe, but in this last installment, he will tackle
the final shark-tier – time travel. In the ending moments of ‘Sharknado 5: Global Swarming’,
Fin was seen wandering alone on Earth after it was destroyed. Now he must travel back in time
to stop the Sharknado that started it all. Will Fin and the gang be able to set everything right
and save the world once and for all?”
Series mainstay Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct ‘The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time’. The climactic ‘Sharknado’ masterpiece stars Ian Ziering alongside a cast of series veterans that includes Tara Reid, Cassie Scerbo, and Vivica A. Fox, all of whom will reprise their familiar roles. The sure-to-be classic conclusion to the epic ‘Sharknado’ saga is set to air on Syfy on August 19, 2018.
