Now this sounds a bit wackadoodle but yet a lot of fun for fans of Days of our Lives! TV Guide is reporting that some of your favorite Salemites go to the movies ( in a very imaginative way) on the upcoming July 4th holiday episode, which is time out of time episode!

According to TVG here is what we know, “Bad rain will hit Salem forcing the young ones — Gabi, Chad, Abigail, Kinsey and Melanie — to stay indoors and watch this year’s Oscar DVDs at the Brady Pub.  While trying to decide which flicks to choose, Melanie imagines herself and Bo in True Grit, while Chad fantasizes himself in The Social Network and Gabi goes for The King’s Speech. Kinsey votes for The Fighter with Brady as Mark Wahlberg’s character and the gals — from Nicole and Melanie to sassy Nurse Maxine — as the mouthy, trashtastic Eklund sisters. And look for Emmy winner Judi Evans (Adrienne) in the badass mom role that won an Oscar for Melissa Leo. The Days take-off we most can’t wait to see? That’d be Swan Lake, with the great Kristian Alfonso (Hope) in all her psychotic Natalie Portman glory.”

So what do you think soapers? Who are you looking forward to seeing the most in the special episode? Let us know!

    hmm… that’s interesting… umm- don’t know what else to say but that picture looks like it’s going to be a hot mess.

    About darn time Days did a special Eppy I Sort Of Conflicted Im Torn Between DAYS & YR special July 4th Eppy’s. Since Days Have Chad I may be leaning there. Nice to see the Remaining soaps trying really hard to entertain their viewers.


  3. Gayle says:

    How can they take the show away for 5 whole days and then come up with this, when we are right in the midst of some Crucial stuff goin down man you guys are weird!!! but hey i am a fan so i will watch!


  4. lou says:

    This could go horribly wrong. I wish DAYS would focus on the basics. GL did a brilliant anniversary show but can’t imagine DAYS writers could pull this off.


  5. Brian T says:

    After reading your description of it I am super stoked! I hope everyone takes it for what it is and enjoys it as much as the cast must have enjoyed filming it. Way to go Corday for this one.


  6. Sue says:

    I’m ready for a stand along episode that is different! Sounds like fun. Need a break from the drama. I’ll definitely record it.


  7. Avelina says:

    Natalie Portman rocks and was soooooooooooooo good in Black Swan so I cant wait to see hope!


  8. Mo says:

    It actually sounds kinda fun.


  9. lumi says:

    I will tape and watch it tooo, fun fun fun


  10. katherine says:

    okay, it was weird, i still had fun with it, but everyone else i know was pissed.


  11. Gmbenet says:

    I saw the 4th of July Days Special. It was a nice change of pace for the fans and the actors involved. I had not seen ANY of the movies being spoofed, but I knew enough about the movies to enjoy the skits anyway. Hope Days will do more specials in the future.


  12. Gmbenet says:

    Many years ago, Days of Our Lives did a variety show as a fundraiser for University Hospital. The idea came from Bill Hayes (Doug Williams). So this is nothing new to Days. I hope they will do a variety show in the future. Let’s see what other talents the Days cast have to offer (i.e. singing, dancing, magic, etc.)
