Screen Rant is debuting the first Shark Side of The Moon trailer revealing the shark-human hybrids at the center of the movie, which is set to premiere as a Tubi Original on Friday, August 12. The film blends the space-driven storytelling of Alien with the tongue-in-cheek filmmaking of Sharknado producers The Asylum.

Shark Side of the Moon is set in a world in which the USSR developed hyper-aggressive humanoid sharks in the height of the Cold War, though following the conflict passing and finding themselves unable to kill the creatures, they launched them all at the Moon. In the present day, a group of American astronauts travel to the planet to repair a module on the dark side of the moon, only to discover the humanoid sharks and finding themselves in a fight for survival.
