Syfy will shake and stir the Thanksgiving holiday weekend with 15 James Bond movies - from Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig - beginning Wednesday, Nov. 23, with the midnight showing of "You Only Live Twice."

Syfy's Thanksgiving holiday programming centerpiece will be the world premiere of the Saturday Original Movie "Storm War," airing on Saturday, Nov. 26 at 9 p.m. In the movie, two rival brothers learn that their father, a brilliant but deranged scientist, has created diabolical weather weapons, which he unleashes on his enemies - and the city of Washington, D.C. Starring Stacy Keach ("American History X") and Jason London ("Dazed and Confused"), "Storm War" is a production of Active Entertainment.

"Storm War" will be surrounded by holiday programming stunts all weekend. On Thanksgiving day, the 007 marathon - including "Thunderball," "Goldfinger," "Die Another Day," "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "Quantum of Solace" - airs from 8 a.m. to 3 a.m. It continues on Friday, Nov. 25, at 8:30 a.m., with six more Bond films, which will air throughout the day.

Syfy wraps up the weekend with all-day theatricals on Sunday, Nov. 26, highlighted by the channel premieres of "The Invisible" (3 p.m.), "An American Werewolf in London" (5 p.m.) and "Drag Me to Hell" (7 p.m.).

Thanksgiving weekend is just the start of Syfy's 2011 holiday festivities. The second annual "Countdown to Christmas Week" (Dec. 4-10) will feature the original miniseries "Neverland," holiday episodes of "Eureka," "Warehouse 13," "Haven" and "Ghost Hunters," and the Christmas-themed Saturday Original Movie "Snowmageddon."
