Comic-Con Under the 'Attack of the 50 Ft. Cheerleader'


The latest opus from producer Roger Corman, the 3D Attack of the 50 Ft. Cheerleader, is set to make its debut in San Diego next month, at Comic-Con 2012. Corman himself will be on hand to present the film.

Roger Corman will appear on a panel alongside fellow legend William Shatner (whose documentary Get a Life! will also debut at the convention), moderated by Kevin Smith, on July 14th. Following the panel, Corman will introduce his EPIX Original Movie at a 3D screening at 12AM at Reading Cinemas. Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader will premiere on August 25 at 10 PM EST on EPIX.

Here's the official Cheerleader synopsis: "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."
