SALT LAKE CITY — The Sharknado series on Syfy is no stranger to silly situations, and in the series’ next installment, Salt Lake City’s Salt Palace is featured along with Gov. Gary Herbert and Salt Lake Comic Con founder Dan Farr.

Salt Lake Comic Con posted footage from the upcoming movie, “Sharknado: The 4th Awakens”, which features the predator-packed weather phenomenon touching down during Salt Lake Comic Con. Gov. Gary Herbert also appears, evacuating the city in one scene and fighting off a shark or two while wielding a tennis racket in another.

While the film is primarily set in Las Vegas, Salt Lake City is one of several other locations to appear in the movie.

The movie premieres on Syfy on July 31.
