'Sharktopus' Trailer: Part Shark, Part Octopus, All Awesome

He's big and bad and he like pretty girls in bikinis on the beach.

No, we're not talking about Charles Atlas. It's 'Sharktopus,' and the trailer for the upcoming Syfy movie has been posted on the Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed. Sharktopus is part shark, part octopus, and darn it, he has a heart.

In the beginning of the trailer he saves a girl from being eaten by a real shark. Then some one in a laboratory flips a switch and Sharktopus is off on a rampage for the rest of trailer. Blame the Navy and the requisite evil scientist (Eric Roberts, how about that) who either created Sharktopus from scratch or tamed him -- we can't tell.

"The Navy said it wanted a killing machine and that's exactly what I gave them, but greatness comes at a price,'' says Roberts' mad scientist before a quick cut to an unsuspecting girl bungee jumping into the Sharktopus' mouth.

It's a wonderful thing, the fantasy world conjured up by CG animation and fake tentacles.

'Sharktopus,' produced by Syfy and B-movie legend Roger Corman, is the latest in the channel's campy creatures original movie programming. Interestingly, or maybe not so, the movies often feature mutant reptiles and fish: 'Dinocroc vs Supergator,' 'Mega Piranha,' 'Mega Snake' and 'Dinoshark.' Mammals need not apply. There's lot of buzz for the upcoming 'Mega Python vs. Gatoroid,' which also features a showdown between '80s music icons Deborah Gibson and Tiffany.

Judging by what we've seen, the Sharktopus would make mince meat out of both Mega Python and Gatoroid. Or chum, if you prefer.

DYIIIIIING to see this! best Killer beach scene ever? CORMAN!! Speaking of THE MAN, we just found this old ass interview, circa 1980, with him and Post Mortem's Mick Garris(he says he is NOT a 'B' movie director...dun dun dun). I had no idea it only took 2 days/1 night to film Little Shop of Horrors?! That's what makes his work MAGIC. Anyway, Corman is getting ready to grace us with his latest project and we always think its fun to look back and see where someone, as successful as he is in this genre, got his start. Enjoy this VID .Dude, like how young does Garris look?! Hahaha

It may be completely cheesy, but it is some kind of science fiction. Something that the Syfy channel seems to be getting further away from than ever before. What? You consider three Ghost Hunters shows science fiction. Then there's wrestling. Not to mention their latest - Mary Knows Best. If they wanted to do a show about a psychic, get reruns of Medium, but not another idiotic reality show. I'd rather be watching reruns of Auto Man. At least that was science fiction.
