Boxing, The Sixties and Mordor
By Elise DeVoe
It's a good weekend for boxing fans. On Saturday, the Kazakh sensation known as "GGG," Gennady Golovkin, is looking for his 17th consecutive knockout against former IBF king Daniel Geale. The matchup is just as exciting as it sounds. Watch HBO's "Road to Golovkin/Geale" below in anticipation of Saturday's main event.
On Monday, TCM is remembering James Garner with a 12-film lineup including the classic The Thrill Of It All and others. It's a nice tribute to a much-loved actor and movie buffs should tune in.
On the darker side of Monday, the disturbing side of online gaming addiction is front and center with the premiere of Love Child on HBO. A couple neglected their real-life premature baby in favor of the virtual world they'd created together. This is unfortunately not a joke, watch the trailer below.
On a (much) lighter note, the WB Shop is having a massive Comic-Con sale now through July 31. Speaking of Comic-Con, have you heard all of the cool stuff we have going on at the annual convention? Check it out.
If you've got some extra cash (or a credit card) burning a hole in your pocket, the new Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor videogame is available for preorder. As if you need another reason, you'll get access to The Dark Ranger when you preorder.
A little something for everyone this week, if I do say so myself. Enjoy!
