New EPIX Original Movies 'Roger Corman's Attack of the 50ft Cheerleader' and 'William Shatner's Get a Life!' To Be Screened During Comic-Con

New York, NY - June 12, 2012 - EPIX, the multiplatform premium entertainment network, will present two living legends together on stage at this year's Comic-Con to preview their latest EPIX projects: director/producer and Academy Award(R) recipient Roger Corman and the incomparable actor, writer and director William Shatner. The panel will be held July 14 in San Diego and will be moderated by "Mr. Comic-Con" himself, Kevin Smith. Smith has had two comedy events on the network, most recently in February with his special Kevin Smith: Burn in Hell.

Following the panel on July 14, both William Shatner and Roger Corman will each introduce screenings to their new films at Comic-Con: the EPIX Original Documentary William Shatner's Get a Life! at 7PM and EPIX Original Movie Roger Corman's Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader in 3D at 12AM at Reading Cinemas.

"We enjoy working with these two icons and are excited to bring them together with their fans at Comic-Con," said EPIX CEO Mark Greenberg. "We look forward to premiering both of these EPIX Originals on TV, online, and on devices to reach all their fans nationwide."

About the EPIX Original Documentary

William Shatner's Get a Life! - Premiering July 28 at 8pm EST Based on Shatner's hugely popular book, this film examines the mystery, longevity and the cultural phenomena of Star Trek and its long-obsessed fans known as "Trekkers." On the surface, the film is an exploration of strangers who have for years attended conventions which looked foolish and almost laughable to some - but Shatner discovers the many secrets and hidden motives behind these individuals' compulsion to attend these events. The end result is a film that reveals a fun and touching side of the fanfare surrounding Star Trek, and examines the thrill of what's happening at these fantasy conventions and the enduring popularity of the film and TV series as Shatner further embraces his role as Captain James T. Kirk and his own impact.

About the EPIX Original Movie

Roger Corman's Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader in 3D - Premiering August 25 at 10pm EST In an update to the great genre pictures of the '50s, Roger Corman's first ever 3D film Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader follows a college coed who uses an experimental drug to transform herself into a popular beauty - but at a huge price. Produced by Corman along with his producing partner/wife Julie Corman, the movie stars Jena Sims (The Vampire Diaries), Sean Young (Blade Runner), Treat Williams (Hair, Prince of the City, Everwood), Ryan Merriman (Pretty Little Liars), A.J. Lamas (Leave it to Lamas), Mary Woronov (Eating Raoul), Ted Raimi (Spider-Man), with cameo appearances by Corman himself and director John Landis (An American Werewolf in London, Animal House, The Blues Brothers). Acclaimed visual effects artist Kevin O'Neill (Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula, Blade and Piranha 3D) directs.
