Want to know about all the awesome geeky stuff that’s being released going into the week of Sept. 17? Stick around for our very first SYFY WIRE Blast weekend edition where Jackie Jennings is being joined by Editor-in-chief, Adam Swiderski.

So, what do we have in store for you? Well, if you’ve been pondering what to watch in movie theaters over the weekend (and during this coming week), look no further than Shane Black’s The Predator.

Despite opening to (ahem) mediocre reviews and a casting controversy, the newest entry into the Predator movie franchise took the box office’s number one spot away from last weekend’s horror champ, The Nun. The fall blockbuster also boasted some great Easter eggs for the fans of the first two Predator films and a few new surprises.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for something a bit more under the radar than The Predator, look no further than director Panos Cosmatos’ revenge thriller, Mandy. The supernatural bloody movie starring Nicholas Cage and Andrea Riseborough got some great reviews in January when it was shown during Sundance. Surprisingly, the film currently boasts an impressive rating of 93% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

However, if you don’t feel like going out and would rather stay at home, we totally recommend playing Marvel’s Spider-Man video game for PS4. There’s really nothing like swinging around Manhattan and taking down some Spidey baddies to make you feel that, indeed, with great power comes great responsibility.

What are you going to do going into the week of Sept. 17? Let us know in the comments below!
