Shark Week: “Fin”-tastic Films

It's time to celebrate the most "fin"-tastic week of the year…Shark Week! The Discovery Channel's week of special programming celebrating these majestic creatures begins Sunday, June 26.

Can't get enough sharks? Here are a few "jaw"-some DVD picks.

In Shark Week: Jawsome Encounters and Shark Week: the 25th Anniversary, the Discovery Channel presents footage from around the world showcasing unique attributes of these lords of the sea.

Nova's Why Sharks Attack is an ecological look at sharks and the threat of their endangerment.

What weighs 2,400 pounds and can swim up to 25 mph? A great white shark! Great White Shark: a living legend is an intimate look at the largest predator of the seas.

And on the lighter side…It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a shark? It's nothing short of sharkpocalypse when a strange hurricane begins to deposit all species of shark onto the city of Los Angeles in Sharknado, the first in an irreverent sci-fi series that has become a cult classic.

What's your favorite shark-themed film?
