Sharks Take Over The World In Sharknado 5 Teaser Trailer

Sharks are destroying the world in the first teaser trailer for Sharknado 5: Global Swarming. The trailer features giant sharks pummeling everything from Big Ben to the Great Wall to the Sphinx. "You see where this is going... right?" it asks. 

The newest film will see things get personal for Ian Ziering's Fin and Tara Reid's April, as their son gets caught up in a traveling Sharknado and transported all over the world, from London to Rio to Tokyo to Rome to Amsterdam. The pair gets help from royals, scholars, Olympians, and TV news anchors throughout their quest to get him back. 

Like previous installments, the movie has recruited quite the cast of guest stars to assist. Romance novel model Fabio will play the pope, while famed singer Charo will be the Queen of England and comedian Chris Kattan will play the English prime minister. Other guest stars will include Tony Hawk, Clay Aiken, Olivia Newton John, Bret Michaels, Margaret Cho, Gilbert Gottfried, Greg Louganis, Tom Daley, Porsha Williams, Dan Fogler, and Ross Mullan. Al Roker, Kathie Lee Giffords, and Hoda Kotb will all appear as themselves.

The fifth installment in the franchise, which is advertising itself with the politically-relevant tagline "Make America Bait Again," was directed by Anthony C. Ferrante, who has directed all of the previous installments, based off a script from Scotty Mullen (King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table). The movie will air on Aug. 6 at 8 p.m. on SyFy; in the meantime, see some of the best shark movies ever.
