Hilarious new Sharknado 3 trailer aligns itself with the epic trilogies of all time

You're gonna need a bigger TV to absorb all the insanity in Syfy's toothy new eco-disaster sequel when Sharknado 3:  Oh Hell No! lands on July 22.  (FULL DISCLOSURE: Syfy is parent company of Blastr.)  Check out this latest teaser, wherein the campy franchise is playfully compared to the classic cinematic trilogies in history like The Lord of the Rings, The Dark Knight and The Godfather, with a hail of hulking sharks, a rain of bullets and a Great White flopping onto Abraham Lincoln's lap.  Wearing its outrageous premise as a battered badge of honor, Sharknado 3 and its filmmakers are going for the jugular with this new installment, set amid the suited sharks of our nation's capital.

Here's the official synopsis:

Sharknado 3 will cause mass destruction in Washington, D.C. before roaring down the Eastern Seaboard and into Florida, and stars Ian Ziering as Fin, Tara Reid as April and Cassie Scerbo as Nova. Joining them will be David Hasselhoff as Fin’s father, Gil; Bo Derek will play April’s mother, May; Ryan Newman will play April and Fin’s daughter, Claudia Shepard, and Jack Griffo will portray Claudia’s friend, Billy.
Additional cameo roles include Mark Cuban as the President of the United States; Ann Coulter as the Vice President; Michele Bachmann as herself; Jerry Springer as Mr. White, a manic tourist; Washington Redskins tackle Tom Compton as a reporter; *NSYNC singer Chris Kirkpatrick as a pool lifeguard, and Chris Jericho, who will portray Bruce the roller coaster ride operator.

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! storms onto Syfy on July 22, 2015, at 9/8c.  Are you hooked on its fishy brand of absurdist disaster flicks?
