Blast Vegas gambles its way to SyFy Thursday

Blast Vegas

Freakin’ Hangover sequels!

[adrotate banner=”1″]Just when you thought the Sharknado had passed, SyFy is still bringing the storm of original movies to Thursday nights! Next on the chopping block is Blast Vegas (aka Destruction: Los Vegas) on July 18th, which features Frankie Muniz, Barry Bostwick, and Maggie Castle.

As a group of college students celebrate in Las Vegas over Spring Break, a furious windstorm unlike any other descends upon the city. Hotel after hotel, the famed Vegas Strip is ripped apart by massive tornadoes of sand and hurricane-like winds. Nelson and Olive discover that an ancient Egyptian curse has been awakened, and together with classic Vegas singer Sal, they must find a way to stop it before the legendary city is entirely destroyed.

You can see the trailer on the Starz Global site. Blast Vegas also features Summer Bishil, Michael Steger, Andrew Lawrence, Brooke Anne Smith, Jillian Nelson, and even cameos by directors John Landis and Joe Dante. Director Jack Perez also gave us Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus and Wild Things 2!

FDR: American Badass!

In this throwback to the original 1966 Batman movie, FDR rides a “wheelchair of death” to stop the world from werewolves who carry the polio virus, including werewolf versions of Hitler, Mussolini, and Emperor Hirohito.

Garrett Brawith directs, with Barry Bostwick is FDR, with Lin Shaye, Bruce McGill, Ray Wise, William Mapother, and Paul Ben-Victor. Kevin Sorbo gives us yet another Abraham Lincoln in a film, with Lincoln making more film appearances this year that reality stars in sex tapes! I think we’ve finally found a history mashup film I’m actually interested in seeing.
