Sharknado 2 sneak peek

Yep, the folks at Asylum have gone and done it again. With the crazy success of Sharknado (one of the most watched movies made for SyFy), it was inevitable that a sequel would come along. For your enjoyment, watch the sneak peek below (courtesy of SyFy).

Fin (Ian Ziering) and April (Tara Reid) return from the first film, as this time the shark infested storms threaten the Big Apple. Joining the cast for the shark mayhem in New York City this time around are Vivica A. Fox (Independence Day, Kill Bill) as Skye, and even a Brody family ( a nice nod to Jaws)  including Martin Brody (played by Mark McGrath), Ellen Brody (Kari Wuhrer, from Eight Legged Freaks), Mora Brody (Courtney Baxter), and Vaughn Brody (Dante Palminteri). The sequel is directed by Anthony C...

New releases for the week of Monday, July 14, 2014

Very, very slim pickings this week. Good week for those who want to catch up on their backlogs, or finally get around to play an earlier title that you missed. Only two games for the week, one for the PS4 and one for the PC. Elsewhere, we have the family film Rio 2 landing on home video, along with the sci-fi flick Under the Skin. In theaters this week we get Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel making a Sex Tape (and then trying to get it back), the planes returning for another family flick from Disney in Planes: Fire & Rescue, and crime gets a free pass again for a night in The Purge: Anarchy. Time now for this week’s list and , need I remind you, release dates are subject to change.

The Strain trailer

The vampire tale by Guillermo del Toro and Dennis Hogan is set to debut this coming Sunday on FX. Check out the trailer below (trailer courtesy of Movie Spawn).

The Strain follows Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, who heads up a team from the CDC that investigates an airliner that has landed in New York with all of its passengers apparently dead by a mysterious virus. The virus turns out to be a strain of ancient vampirism, and begins to spread throughout the city in an outbreak. Ephraim joins forces with others to combat the threat which could very well wipe out humanity on Earth.

The series stars David Bradley (Walder Frey in Game of Thrones), Anne Betancourt (The Young and the Restless), Nikolai Witschl (King & Maxwell), and Corey Stoll (Non-Stop).
