Airdate: Sharknado

2013-07-22_1637After such huge publicity, Universal Channel has today announced it will bring forward the premiere of US cult film, Sharknado.

It will now premiere in Australia this Friday July 26th at 8.30pm.

In Sharknado, regulars of a beachside bar including owner Fin (Ian Ziering/Beverly Hills 90210), bartender Nova (Cassie Scerbo/Make It Or Break It) and local drunk George (John Heard/Home Alone) team up with Fin’s ex-wife April (Tara Reid/Scrubs) to investigate the ecological nightmare that has sharks swimming through the streets of Los Angeles and falling from the skies.

Sharknado sent social media into a frenzy after its recent broadcast on Syfy in the US becoming the biggest film event of the American summer. A sequel has since been announced.

Repeat screenings on Saturday July 27th at 10.30am, Monday September 9th at 8.30pm and Tuesday September 10th at 12.15pm.

Chupacabra – 8.30pm Monday July 29
Super Tanker – 10.15pm Monday July 29
Swarm– 8.30pm Monday August 12

Age of Dinosaurs– 8.30pm Monday August 19

  1. Looks like it was such a snap decision they haven’t updated the EPG guide with the change yet. Looked for Sharknado so I could put a record in, not there.

    It is on the Foxtel website though, so it is just a formality to update the EPG side of things.

  2. you thought the digital fx in The Bible were bad, this is worse. Forced my self to sit through the show and thought, well thats time ill never get back!!

  3. I agree with everyone else that a movie with such a large amount of special effects would have greatly benefited from being shown in HD. Once again you realise how Foxtel haven’t spent enough money on Entertainment-genre HD channels.
