The Asylum are back!
If you thought that Mega Piranha was the pinnacle of this straight to DVD production house's achievements then you were mistaken.
I've only recently become aware of this kind of film and I can't help but think they're great. Yes, they are ripping off other stories but, as discussed in the last post, that's just what happens. They're silly and nonsensical. They have hammy acting and crappy special effects. They are oddly endearing though.
The Asylum also made Paranormal Entity, Snakes on a Train and, who could forget, Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus.
Behold! Titanic 2 in all its trailery glory.
“I'd like to thank all of you for joining me on this day that'll go down in this nation's history. A day where the lives lost on board this ship's predecessor were remembered with the creation of the greatest, fastest, most sophisticated ship ever created. The Titanic 2!” Is it just me or is there an issue with tenses in this opening?
“Let’s make history.” What? By not sinking this time around?
Bruce Davison has a “bad feeling”. I’d have one too if I was on a boat called the TITANIC 2!
“It looks like history’s repeating itself.” Maybe that’s because you’re on the TITANIC 2! On the same course as the first one? I don’t know much about icebergs, and maybe the killer one from the first movie (or, you know, real life!) has moved or something, but surely this new ship has got like, radar… and navigation equipment? No? Ok.
Maybe there’s no iceberg this time. It could all be to do with the wave that’s mentioned at the end of the trailer. Maybe it’s a political commentary on global warming.
It looks like good, crappy fun to me. But if this isn’t your thing, and you prefer the creature features, never fear! Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus is coming soon!
