Oh Hell Yes: The 'Sharknado 3' Trailer Compares Itself to 'The Dark Knight' and 'Lord of the Rings'

The Sharknado movies know exactly what they are and why people love 'em, and so they wisely play up the ridiculous factor because that's exactly why we're tuning in and live-tweeting whenever each new installment airs over on SyFy.

It's just fun... and weird, and absurd, and some of the silliest stuff we've ever watched, but that's what makes this franchise special. That, and the fact that it's turned Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering into the campy action hero you've always yearned for.

All that said, the first teaser for Sharknado 3 is here, and it's naturally comparing itself to all the best movie trilogies that exist. From Lord of the Rings to Christopher Nolan's Batman movies, the third Sharknado joins an esteemed list of part threes with their newest entry, set to air on SyFy this July 22. 

Check out the first teaser.


So just how ridiculous is Sharknado 3? Well for starters Mark Cuban plays the President of the United States, as part three takes us from Washington D.C. down the east coast towards Florida. David Hasselhoff is involved too, because of course he is -- and Tara Reid is returning as well -- but really it's those flying sharks that demand top billing. 

And we'll take a tornado of sharks over a plain 'ol swimming shark any day. How about you?
