We have a fresh trailer for Sky Sharks. This genre flick is a long time coming. Case in point, we’ve had more than a dozen posters for it through the years, as well as a different trailer that debuted back 2016. But now, finally, the insanity is coming as the movie has set its premiere at this year’s FrightFest, which can be holding a virtual edition for 2020. As we are able to see in this new trailer, the movie features a whole lot to provide, including life-threatening mechanical sharks, Nazis, zombies and so far more.
The new Sky Sharks trailer opens with a cascade of big, sweeping CGI shots. We quickly get a go through the mechanical sharks at the middle of the action, which are indeed with the capacity of flying. They are called “perfect weapon systems.” It quickly can become a massive spectacle, with so much happening all at once it is hard to process the insanity. One takeaway from the footage is they seem to be taking the whole thing very seriously, in comparison with other B-movies with similarly insane premises. There is little or no tongue-in-cheek. Whether or not that’s for the higher is up for the average person viewer to choose.
Sky Sharks focuses on a team of Arctic geologists who stumble upon an abandoned laboratory that the Nazis used to develop a secret weapon during the final months of World War II. Deep in the ice, they accidentally awaken an army of life-threatening flying zombie sharks, who’re ridden by genetically mutated, undead superhumans. These creations take to the skies, seeking bloodthirsty revenge on any aircraft they come across. An elite task force is assembled to defend myself against this new threat and prevent them from conquering the air. But with the clock ticking away, the job force discovers they will have to fight fire with fire. The stage is then set for the greatest flying super-mutant zombie shark air battle the planet has ever seen.
As area of the FrightFest lineup, Sky Sharks will open this year’s event. It is directed by Mark Fehse. This will serve as the movie’s official U.K. premiere. FrightFest co-director Alan Jones had this to say about doing the function virtually in 2010.
“We will desperately miss seeing all of you in person this August Bank Holiday but are looking forward to our virtual connection where we can say hello to the best family in the world, the FrightFest community. And if you’ve never experienced a FrightFest before, and have always yearned to join in with the fear, fun and fabulousness now is your chance to find out what you’ve been missing for 21 years.”
The cast includes Tony Todd, Lyn Lowry, Mick Garris and Barbara Nedeljakova. There is no word yet on a possible release date. But the upcoming debut could lead to an acquisition, or announcement of a release strategy. FrightFest is set to occur August 27 through 31.
