NEW YORK - April 27, 2011 - Richard Grieco (21 Jump Street) tries to destroy Los Angeles with a big hammer, while Manu Bennett (Spartacus: Blood and Sand) battles a scary Minotaur in the May Syfy Saturday Original Movies.

Starring Richard Grieco, Cody Deal (The Castle) and Patricia Velasquez (The Mummy), Almighty Thor premieres Saturday, May 7, at 9PM (ET/PT) on Syfy, the same weekend Thor opens in movie theatres.

Loki plans to obliterate Los Angeles using the Hammer -- and Thor (Deal) is the only one who can stop him. Almighty Thor is a production of The Asylum.

Manu Bennett plays the title role in Sinbad and the Minotaur, premiering Saturday, May 21, at 9PM (ET/PT) on Syfy. Sinbad and his men search tirelessly for the lost treasure of the Colossus of Rhodes, which is guarded by a terrifying Minotaur. Along the journey, Sinbad meets Princess Tara, a slave in the evil sorcerer Al-Jibar's harem. Now Sinbad must find the treasure, rescue the Princess and conquer the Minotaur, while defeating the enraged sorcerer. Sinbad and the Minotaur is a production of American World Pictures.
