Long Live Mega Shark!

Jun 21, 2011 in Headline, News, Other

We know when we’ve been beat.

As much as it pains us to say it, MEGA SHARK’s position as the king of  kitchy, over-the-top, giant sea creatures, has been usurped by a certain chondrichthyes-cephalapoda hybrid. Let’s face it, we were out-Mega Sharked by Sharktopus (and if any of you decide to bribe me with my favorite beverage… and then somehow convince me to start blogging after drinking said elixer… I might even reveal how we were almost involved in that film).

But even though he’s no longer on top, we’re happy to see that there’s still love out there for the Orginal:

Like this fan photo.

Or this kid’s fun zone in Santa Clarita.

Or this cool birthday cake.

Pop Culture References.

Even GQ (not that one).

Famous artists are inspired by Mega Shark.

And another masterpiece from our friend Stephen Staubman

Some fans have even made their own mockbusters.

Thanks for sharing everyone!

In case you missed it the first time around, the best movie theatre chain in America, Alamo Draft House, is screening an encore presentation of MEGA SHARK VS GIANT OCTOPUS on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 at 7pm CST.

The film will be shown in “Hecklevision,” where audience members will be able to express their love and admiration for this cinematic classic via live text, which will be streamed onto the screen alongside the feature.

It’s the only way you can use a cell phone in an Alamo Theatre without being publicly humiliated.

If you’re going to be in the Austin area next week, be sure to show your support for MEGA SHARK VS GIANT OCTOPUS (and for theatres that serve booze).

Go here to buy tickets or for more information.

I hope someone sues the Earth out of existence.
