Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus!! Who are you rooting for???

Welcome to the rebellion.

Finally... the ultra-stars you love. The
colossal talents you've been dying to see share the big screen. But can it ever be big enough for... ...Deborah Gibson and Lorenzo Lamas?

Feast your eyes on the wonder that is Asylum Film's MEGA SHARK VS. GIANT OCTOPUS!!

Who are you rooting for? Take the poll at EW.com!

I love this crazy world.

Deborah Gibson always strikes as pretty down to Earth in her interviews. And very accepting of her place in Pop Culture history and her career. She's a pro through and through and more talented than people give her credit for. She says she had a ball on this over at her

I give her a big thumbs up here.
And she's even founded a charity to help kids who can't afford it attend arts camps. It named, appropriately enough, Deborah Gibson's Electric Youth.

Zappin it to ya
The pressures everywhere
Goin right through ya
The fevers in the air
Oh yeah, its there!
Dont underestimate the power
Of a lifetime ahead

Electric youth
Feel the power, you see the energy
Comin up
Coming on strong
The future only belongs
To the future itself/in the hands of itself
And the future is
Electric youth
Its true you cant fight it
Live by it
The next generation...

Its electric

Lorenzo Lamas? Tougher to call.

Debbie's ex-husband doesn't get a lot of respect from the public and I have a bit of a personal reason not to gravitate to the guy. But he does co-chair a number of charities and the dude is doing summer stock, for heaven's sake.

This time out the shark and octopus put Mr. Lamas over the top.

The sheer joy and sublime ridiculousness of the flick (and it's "You get what we promise you" trailer) has caught the public's fancy. It's one of the highest rated searches for the last week and already has over 800 thousand views on youtube. It's the kind of buzz filmmakers of any budget level dream of.

So leave logic at the door and just enjoy the trailer, again and again.

And oh, remember that dusty script in my drawer I thought no one would buy?

I was
sooooo wrong.



  1. Insert Will Ferrell into this Mega Shark movie and it instantly becomes a "blockbuster comedy hit"

  2. thought that shark WAS Will Ferrell! It was the teeth that convinced me.
