Almost As Popular As Porn

Thursday, May 14th, 2009 @ 9:47 am | Headline, News, Other, Releases

Thanks to our friends at MTV.com, the trailer for MEGA SHARK VS GIANT OCTOPUS has become a small internet sensation.

We’ve had almost as many hits as Latt’s “leaked” sex tape.

If you haven’t already seen it, you can watch the trailer here.

      Guys. I have this little website devoted to cult and b-movie posters.
      So I’m asking your permission to post Asylum’s one-sheets / key art.
      If the answer’s ‘yes’ – where can I get them in decent quality?
      Many thanks!

      Hi guys,

      I’m glad that you are in France for the Canne Festival.
      I’m very happy that for once, your latest movie will come to France. Love what you do !

      See you,

      Mike from Paris

      When does this film come out in the U.K??
      Any film where a shark eats a plane is worth a look!!

    8. Robert Hood Says:

      I think I was the first to put the trailer up on YouTube (on 11 May) and since then it’s had 843,821 views and nearly 3000 comments. I was also the first to put up the pic of the Maga-Shark eating the Golden Gate bridge:

      http://roberthood.net/blog/index.php/2009/05/01/they-grow-em-big-in-the-asylum/

      – and that sent the hit-rate on my blog soaring — nearly, but not quite, as high as when I blogged early pics from “Cleavagefield”. So you’re not wrong re the header of this post. Many commenters have scorned it — but the interest levels sure are high. I think the fans are sending a message. More maga-giant monsters please!

      I’ll be reviewing the film as soon as I can get a copy.

      Hey uncle joe mccarthy – you burned 20 copies? Slow day in your parents basement eh?

    28. Admin Says:

      Funny and true story: After Latt received a number of particularly profane emails, he wrote back to the authors and politely told them he was sorry they didn’t like our movies. In every single case, a concerned parent wrote back with something along the lines of “I apologize for my son’s first email. He’s not supposed to use the family computer without permission.”

      In answer to your question, no, we weren’t trying to “rip off” anything with this film. We didn’t even know there was a series of books about megalodon (but then again, we can’t read…). The idea for MEGA SHARK VS GIANT OCTOPUS came from one of our Japanese buyers, who asked us if we could make a movie about a giant shark fighting a giant octopus…
