SYFY WILL CELEBRATE THANKSGIVING WEEKEND WITH FIFTEEN JAMES BOND MOVIES – FROM CONNERY TO CRAIG – NOVEMBER 23-25
SYFY SATURDAY ORIGINAL MOVIE STORM WAR PREMIERES NOVEMBER 26 AT 9PM
NEW YORK – November 7, 2011 – Syfy will shake and stir the Thanksgiving holiday weekend with 15 James Bond movies – from Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig – beginning Wednesday, November 23 with the midnight showing of You Only Live Twice.
Syfy’s Thanksgiving holiday programming centerpiece will be the world premiere of the Saturday Original Movie Storm War, airing on Saturday, November 26 at 9PM (ET/PT). In the movie, two rival brothers learn that their father, a brilliant but deranged scientist, has created diabolical weather weapons which he unleashes on his enemies – and the city of Washington, DC. Starring Stacy Keach (American History X) and Jason London (Dazed and Confused), Storm War is a production of Active Entertainment.
Storm War will be surrounded by holiday programming stunts all weekend. On Thanksgiving Day, November 24, the 007 marathon – including Thunderball, Goldfinger, Die Another Day, The Spy Who Loved Me and Quantum of Solace – airs from 8AM-3AM (ET/PT), continuing on Friday, November 25, at 8:30AM with six more Bond films which will air throughout the day.
Syfy wraps up the weekend with all-day theatricals on Sunday, November 26, highlighted by the channel premieres of The Invisible (3PM), An American Werewolf in London (5PM) and Drag Me to Hell (7PM).
Thanksgiving weekend is just the start of Syfy’s 2011 holiday festivities. The second annual Countdown to Christmas Week (December 4-10) will feature the original miniseries Neverland, holiday episodes of Eureka, Warehouse 13, Haven and Ghost Hunters, and the Christmas-themed Saturday Original Movie Snowmageddon.
