Syfy has released a trailer for its newest film, SharknadoTara Reid, one of the better character actors of our generation, finally gets the starring role she deserves as she plays the ex-wife of Fin, an aptly named beachside bar owner.

From the official press release:

Up in the sky. It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s a … shark! A supersized storm sucks sharks from the ocean and hurls them onto land in the new Syfy Original Movie Sharknado, premiering Thursday, July 11 at 9PM (ET/PT).

In the movie, regulars of a beachside bar including owner Fin (Ian Ziering/Beverly Hills 90210), bartender Nova (Casie Scerbo/Make It Or Break It) and local drunk George (John Heard/Home Alone) team up with Fin’s ex-wife April (Tara Reid/Scrubs) to investigate the ecological nightmare that has sharks swimming through the streets of Los Angeles and falling from the skies.

A cast with much talent and a transcendent, game-changing plot such as a series of shark tornados, I just can’t see how the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences can afford to overlook Syfy’s next surefire classic.

Watch the trailer over here.
