Longview, Texas (KETK) — One of the most buzz-worthy movies of the summer hasn't even been in movie theaters, until now.
Friday night, for one night only, Sharknado will make a social media-fueled leap onto the silver screen at Regal 14 in Longview at midnight.
A cable-tv sensation, Sharknado, reeled in a modest audience of 1.4 million viewers for its July premiere on the Syfy Channel, but it spawned a Twitter feed frenzy of 5,000 tweets per minute.
Perhaps, Sharknado sensed box office blood in the water, like Jaws, almost 40 years ago.
