Told through the eyes of those closest to them, as well as the communities they served, these stories offer a sobering glimpse into a routinely overlooked and misunderstood reality." Here's the trailer:"The Limehouse Golem"
    Bill Nighy stars in this thriller, based on the novel by Peter Ackroyd, which will be in select theaters and available on VOD and Digital HD on September 8. "The city of London is gripped with fear as a serial killer – dubbed The Limehouse Golem – is on the loose and leaving cryptic messages written in his victim's blood.

    "Power" Season 4 (Sunday on Starz at 9 p.m.)
    It's also finale night for "Power," with Season 4, Episode 10 titled "You Can't Fix This." Here's the synopsis: "Ghost and Tommy seek retribution after tragedy befalls the St. Patrick family; Tasha tries to keep things together at home; Angela attempts to figure out what Ghost is hiding." If there's any kind of cliffhanger, don't worry: Starz already renewed the Omari Hardwick series for Season 5.

    "American Experience: Walt Disney" (Tuesday on PBS at 8 p.m.)
    There are a few other season finales this week, before the start of the Fall 2017-2018 TV season, but that's not the only thing worth watching. There are also specials like this, which actually first aired in 2015. PBS is bringing it back August 29, sharing the life and legacy of Walt Disney, from his creation of Mickey Mouse through the making of his first full-length animated film, "Snow White." The two-hour doc (which you can actually stream right now, if you're ready) airs Tuesday night, right before "Frontline" re-airs its own special, "League of Denial: The NFL's Concussion Crisis."

    "Game of Thrones" (Sunday on HBO at 9 p.m.)
    This is it. The Season 7 finale. Already. I know. How? Gods willing, Season 7, Episode 7 won't already be on the Internet by the time you read this, but ... maybe. Watch it with the rest of the nation anyway, 'cause Twitter is going to melt down. This is the last episode of GoT until the final Season 8 airs, and we don't know if that will be in 2018 or 2019. It could be a very long wait for those final six episodes of the series. We want them now ... but we also want this show to go on forever.

    TV Worth Watching

    "Episodes" Season 5 (Sunday on Showtime at 10 p.m.)
    Pitch your best farewell to Matt LeBlanc's Showtime comedy, which launches its fifth and final season on Aug. 20. Here's the synopsis for the first of the season's seven episodes, fittingly titled "Episode One": "Matt's gameshow is a hit, but he must also have daily contact with Merc Lapidus; Sean and Beverly work for Sean's ex-partner; Carol goes into a tailspin.""Bachelor in Paradise" Season 4 (Monday on ABC at 8 p.m.)
    Is this really "TV Worth Watching?" Well, like all Bachelor Nation programming, it's a guilty pleasure. Considering all the drama that happened months before the season aired, a lot of viewers may want to watch for the rubber-necking factor. The first episode is meant to address the "scandal" of whatever happened between Corinne and DeMario, shutting down production while they investigated what happened. "They" ultimately decided nothing happened, so everyone returned for more casual hookups on the beach, and plenty of love triangles, tears, and drama.

    "Marlon" Season 1 (Wednesday on NBC at 9 p.m.)
    This new comedy is loosely inspired by the life of star Marlon Wayans, following a loving but immature father committed to co-parenting his two kids with his very-together ex-wife. In the August 16 pilot, "Marlon and Ashley's attempt to have a friendly divorce gets complicated when Ashley starts dating; Marlon struggles to keep a sponsor for his online channel."

    "Project Runway" Season 16 (Thursday on Lifetime at 8 p.m.)
    Will this season make it work? They're certainly making drama, with the trailer focusing on one of the designers walking off the runway mid-critique and an angry Tim Gunn making speeches about "cheating" and "atrocious" behavior. Also, there will be clothes? We think? In a first, the models this season will be all sizes, ranging from size 0 to 22. Guest judges will include Demi Lovato, Katie Holmes, Olivia Munn, Yolanda Hadid, Kate Upton, Maggie Q, Kelsea Ballerini, Dove Cameron, China Anne McClain, Asia Kate Dillon, Carly Chaikin, Maddie Ziegler, Sophia Stallone, Georgina Chapman, Rachel Brosnahan, and Anne Fulenwider.

    This action movie hit theaters on August 4, and you can check it out August 8 on VOD and iTunes. In 1959 Indochina, a Wild West town is controlled by the criminal class: Vietnamese warlords and European war criminals. "Den-Dhin-Chan Labor Camp is run by four such dangerous men.

Keanu Reeves never does TV, but he has a recurring role in this 10-episode first season, and you'll also spot Anthony LaPaglia, Eric Roberts, and Margaret Cho. Here's the synopsis for the first half-hour episode, which premieres August 9: "Ingmar (Peter Stormare), a former stuntman, is trying to get by as a private investigator. A private dick, as they used to say. One day, a case leads him to an incredibly annoying DJ, Axel (Johan Glans). But it's not just irritation that Axel awakens in Ingmar."

  23. 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Extras Will Include at Least 10 Captain America PSAs

    "Spider-Man: Homecoming" fans can look forward to a wealth of bonus material on the DVD and Blu-ray, but first they'll have to exercise some *patience.*

    Light SPOILERS ahead from the movie.

    We all knew Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) was starring in "Homecoming" with Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), but who knew that Captain America (Chris Evans) would steal every scene with his PSAs? Turns out, high school kids have to watch videos of Cap talking about detention, P.E., and (awkward) body changes as part of the curriculum. Each little cameo was a delight, and we can expect to see more in the home release.

    Director Jon Watts told Collider he had Chris Evans for a set amount of time, so he just wrote a bunch of PSAs and had Evans read off a teleprompter.

    "We put it together like it was the actual DVD that they show at the school, so it just is clicking from one to another to another. [...] It was like Captain America just showed up and had to do this stuff for the government... He's just reading it off the scrolling thing and being like, 'Are you sure you want me to say this?'"

    Watts told Collider there will be at least 10 PSAs for the home release, adding that there should be a "Play All" feature showing them all back-to-back.

    So at least we can look forward to that extra, even if Marisa Tomei's big Aunt May scene won't be featured, since it never even got filmed. Marvel has yet to set an official home release date, 'cause the movie just opened in theaters last week, but it should arrive this fall.

    POST-CREDITS SPOILER AHEAD.

    Some fans loved the irony of that "patience" Cap PSA in the post-credits, while others thought it was lame and disappointing (especially after it was teased as one of the best-end-credits scenes ever.) We're on the love side, but in case you're wondering why they decided to go with that, Watts told Collider:

    "When we were shooting, Eric Carroll, one of the Marvel producers and I just started laughing about, 'What if we did one about patience and make that be a final thing?'"

    And it's not like they didn't have a more meaty mid-credits scene to satisfy people wanting a link to future MCU movies. The tone of the final Cap PSA seemed to fit the rest of "Homecoming," but not everyone appreciated waiting so long for that. Too bad!

    TV Worth Watching

    July 4th Marathons
    Every holiday brings marathon TV programming, so in case you want to spend the day off from work/school at home instead of at BBQs or the beach, you have options. A personal favorite is Syfy's "The Twilight Zone" marathon, a holiday binge-ing staple. Or, in honor of Independence Day, why not watch E!'s "Independence Day" marathon, starting Tuesday from 6 to 9 a.m., and then just replaying over and over until 3 a.m. the next morning. You can also pair that 1996 movie with the 2016 sequel, "Independence Day: Resurgence," which HBO is playing right before "The Words That Built America" (see below).

    "The Words That Built America" (Tuesday on HBO at 7 p.m.)
