'Sharkalanche!' The Best Entries in Syfy's Twitter Contest to Name 'Sharknado 2'
Following the social media success of its original movie "Sharknado," Syfy is taking to Twitter to ask fans to name the sequel.
Syfy green lit "Sharknado 2" on Wednesday, less than a week after the first movie garnered as much as 5,000 Tweets per minute during its two-hour airing last Thursday. In total, "Sharknado" resulted in 387,000 online comments, according to Syfy.
Despite the social-media chatter, however, the movie only pulled in 1.4 million viewers. Earlier this year its "Chupacabra vs. the Alamo" attracted 1.5 million viewers. And the series premiere of "Defiance," which in fairness was heavily marketed, drew 2.7 million.
The second go-round, which will be set in New York instead of Los Angeles like the first, is slated to air in 2014. For now here are some of the best user-generated titles currently floating around the Twittersphere.
Please please let the #Sharknado sequel be called "The Wizard of Jaws."— Team Coco (@TeamCoco) July 17, 2013
