From the Asylum: Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus

Images from Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus (US-2010; dir. Christopher Ray) — Asylum’s sequel to their most successful creature feature, Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus — have been released, though the only images of the titular beasts appear on the poster, albeit pretty cool ones:


The massive prehistoric shark has survived the last battle, and the world is again threatened when a new, more dangerous foe is discovered in the jungles of Africa.

The much-anticipated sequel is directed by Christopher Ray, son of B-film legend Fred Olen Ray and director of the 2008 giant monster flick Reptisaurus (see other Backbrain articles on Reptisaurus) and the anticipated giant snake flick Megaconda. It stars Jaleel White, Gary Stretch, Sarah Lieving, and Robert Picardo. So, the film features the famous sitcom “nerd” caricature Steve Urkel (“Whoa, Mama!”), along with an ex-boxer and action star, the non-monstrous co-star of the upcoming Super Shark (and many other B-monster films) and a Star Trek: Voyager/Stargate alumni (who has been in much else besides, including the recently released Monsterwolf) — quite a line-up. With Jaleel White, the Asylum continues its “tradition” of including a reincarnated (and re-fashioned) star in its giant monster film casts.

… while Robert Picardo looks bemused.

Of course, the biggest star of the lot — he of the “grab the plane out of the sky” and “chomp on the Golden Gate Bridge” fame — is back, this tiime around to take on an amphibious monstrosity of the mutant croc kind. This could be seen as an advance over a Giant Octopus, as this opponent at least has a big mouth full of teeth.

And what do the humans do? They run!

The film hits the streets on December 21, 2010. Let’s hope the city destruction that’s on the poster actually appears in the film!

More pics (non-destructive) appear in the Gallery below.

    I wish that “whoever wins, we lose” logo wasn’t there. That’s quickly becoming a B-Movie cliche. 😛

    Tim, there seems to me to be few taglines that aren’t a cliché…

    Rob the tagline is from Anderson’s AvP movie, slightly concerning the Asylum are now pinching taglines of all things.

    Really wish the Distributor would get their act together with Asylum movies Downunder. Am going to have to import them by the looks of things 🙁

    Jeff, Asylum movies are being distributed in Australia by Peacock Films:

    They’re amenable to review copies, so give them a buzz. Unfortunately the release happens some time after the US release — and sometimes not at all. I notice they’ve got “Mega Piranha” though.
