Highlights of Cable’s Movies On Demand (MOD) new release schedule for July, 2011 include “Source Code” premiering July 8, “Limitless,” premiering July 19 and “Rango” on July 29. Almost every major studio new release listed below comes to cable’s MOD schedule either before or the same day as DVD (details below). A wide array of indie films are also premiering in July (small selection listed below). Two infamous (and very different) “on the road” documentaries are also playing: “Magic Trip” about the famed author Ken Kesey’s legendary psychedelic bus trip and “Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop,” O’Brien’s 32-city comedy tour after he was booted from “The Tonight Show.” Cable viewers can catch many of these before or same day they hit theaters or DVD.
