Closely following on Jim’s heels, everyone’s favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premieres on EPIX Saturday, May 30th at 8pm ET. This big budget reboot is the perfect watch for the family. TMNT packs quite a few laughs as well as awesome fight scenes and special effects, so grab the family, order some pizza and hang with the heroes in a half-shell for a couple hours!
Wrap up the weekend with Deep Web, the story of Ross Ulbricht, suspected Dread Pirate Roberts and leader of the Silk Road.

The Cat’s Meow, a sort-of true story about a murder on William Randolph Hearst’s yacht in 1924. Directed by Peter Bogdanovich, The Cat’s Meow stars Kirsten Dunst, Jennifer Tilly, Eddie Izzard, Cary Elwes and the late Edward Herrmann. The film is a visual feast for the eyes and an entertaining take on one of Hollywood’s oldest mysteries.
Chloe Grace Moretz plays Mia Hall in If I Stay, the story of a girl who must decide whether or not to wake up and live a life she never expected after a terrible car accident puts her in a coma. Based on the novel by Gayle Forman, this film is an emotional, yet beautiful one.
