Possible minor SPOILERS about Guardians of the Galaxy. This isn’t really anything that you wouldn’t know from watching trailers, but if you’re trying to avoid everything about GotG before you go in, you might want to sit this one out.

Sharkndo 2Did you miss last week’s premiere of Sharknado 2: The Second One, the inexplicably popular Syfy creature feature? Did you also miss one of the numerous subsequent rebroadcasts? Perhaps you just really, really want to see former Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering wielding a chainsaw Bruce Campbell-style on the big screen. If that’s the case, you’re in luck, because that’s going to happen. The made-for-TV Sharknado 2 will get a turn in movie theaters, but if you’re interested in this, you can’t rest on your laurels, because it’s only for one night.

The Wrap reports that Fathom Events will bring the schlocky, social media-driven hit to theaters for a single night on August 21, screening at 8pm local time across the country. Fathom are the folks who are responsible for bringing all kinds of live events into movie theaters, including stage performances and concerts, as well as big ticket MMA and boxing matches. They’ve also recently staged events with the likes of Riff Trax and even showed the Monty Python reunion performances.

Outlander Blends Time Travel, Romance, And Men In Kilts: This Week’s Sci-Fi TV

fb share tweet share

OutlanderFans have been eagerly awaiting Ronald D. Moore’s return to television for years now. Regardless of how you felt about the show’s ending, there’s no question that Moore and company accomplished something amazing with the Battlestar Galactica reboot, proving once again that there is an audience out there for smart, complex science fiction drama…if only the powers that be will actually greenlight it (and not put it on Fox). But of all the shows Moore could have chosen for his return to the small screen, I never would have guessed he would pick a time-traveling romance series about a World War I nurse dropped into 18th century Scotland. Yet here comes Outlander.

Based on author Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling book series, Outlander is the tale of Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), who passes out near some mysterious standing stones, only to awaken, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court-style, two centuries earlier in “an unknown world where her freedom and very life are at risk.” Soon she finds her loyalty to her 20th-century husband strained when she’s force to marry a strapping Scottish warrior named Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan). Even if Claire can find a way back to her native time, will she still want to return when that would mean giving up the hot dude in the kilt? Time will tell.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Sets August Box Office Record, James Gunn Is Very Thankful

fb share tweet share

guardians of the galaxyDefying all odds – or at least the highly subjective odds that studio executives are fond of talking about — James Gunn’s spacey sci-fi adventure Guardians of the Galaxy is the number one movie in the country right now, bringing in a whopping $94 million over the weekend. For those who don’t have immediate memory recall for all the movies ever released in August, this is definitely a box office record for the month, with Guardians’s total completely outshining The Bourne Ultimatum’s $69 million August weekend back in 2007. Sci-fi fans couldn’t be happier, Groot couldn’t be more Groot, and James Gunn couldn’t be more thankful for audiences taking a chance on one of the weirdest blockbusters Hollywood has ever known.

Check Out This Classic Press Video For James Cameron’s Aliens

fb share tweet share

Being the 35th anniversary of Ridley Scott’s horror sci-fi classic Alien it’s easy to overlook that James Cameron’s follow up, 1986’s Aliens is also a badass piece of sci-fi cinema in its own right. If you need a reminder of that fact—you probably don’t need anyone to remind you about how awesome this movie is—just check out this vintage behind the scenes look at the film from the original release.

Aliens picks up 50 years after the events of the original. Heroine Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) has been asleep the entire time, haunted by dreams of what happened on the Nostromo, which, we all know, would be more than enough to traumatize every last one of us. When she wakes up, she finds herself in another kind of nightmare, one where no one believes her and acts like she’s crazy. There can’t possibly be an unholy army of armor plated alien killing machines with acid for blood lurking out there in space, can there?
