I have gotten a plethora of cool press releases have been flooding my inbox recently that you may find interesting. This post will include blurbs on AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Mel Brooks, The Cheshire Murders, Sharknado, Ghost Shark, Streetcorner Symphony, Ginger and Rosa, Ray Donovan, and American Dad.
- Wednesday is the AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Mel Brooks starting at 8:00 on TCM and you can watch a clip from the special below:
- Next week, HBO returns with a riveting new documentary that explores strange circumstances surrounding the murders that took place in Connecticut back in 2007. The Cheshire Murders premieres Monday at 9:00, exclusively on HBO. Watch the trailer below:
- If you liked Sharknado, get ready for more because the Syfy movie will get a sequel next year. Even better, you can help name the movie. Just tweet your subtitle to @SyfyMovies using #Sharknado. Syfy will select the best submission as the subtitle for Sharknado 2 which will be taking place in NYC. If you cannot wait next year for another shark fix, do not worry, on Thursday, August 22 at 9:00, Syfy will premiere Ghost Shark. And like every other Syfy original movie, the title is self explanatory.
- You may remember Street Corner Symphony from the second season of The Sing-Off and they recently released their new album Southern Autumn Nostalgia which features an acapella version of The Black Crows (by way of Otis Redding) Hard to Handle.
- Out on DVD this week is Ginger & Rosa, the "exhilarating and heartbreaking" (Wall Street Journal) film that tells the emotional coming-of-age story of two best friends whose relationship is effected by the events of the 1960s starring Ella Fanning.
- If you have been enjoying the new Showtime series Ray Donovan, get ready for another season because the network has already renewed it for a second season after becoming its most watched series premiere ever and is set to premiere sometime next year.
- If you enjoy American Dad, I hope you have cable, because the animated show will be moving to TBS in late 2014
