'Sharknado' will blow through Lawrence and Kansas City on August 2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Sharknado is not only taking the country by storm, but it's looking to take a big bite out two movie theaters across the metro.

The Syfy hit is launching its attack on August 2 at Regal Cinemas Kansas City Stadium 18. It will also be playing at the Regal Southwind Stadium 12 in Lawrence, Kan.

Sharknado originally aired on television July 11. It drew a modest 1.37 million viewers, but it became a phenomenon after trending worldwide for hours on twitter during its premiere.

At one point the hastag (# sharknado) received about 5,000 tweets per minute, and accumulated more than 600,000 social media mentions.

It drew so much attention through social media, that it sparked a sequel which is expected to air on Syfy in July 2014.

If you haven't seen Sharknado watch the trailer below ... if you dare.
