Roger Corman doc Corman's World hits theaters in December

11.02.2011by: Eric Walkuski

Back in May, it was announced that the much-anticipated documentary CORMAN'S WORLD: EXPLOITS OF A HOLLYWOOD REBEL would have a limited theatrical release in the late summer of this year. Turns out, obviously, that was incorrect. However, now we bring solid news that the film, directed by Alex Stapleton, will be hitting theaters on DECEMBER 16th.

CORMANíS WORLD: EXPLOITS OF A HOLLYWOOD REBEL is a tantalizing and star-studded tribute to Roger Corman, Hollywoodís most prolific writer-director producer, and seminal influencing force in modern moviemaking over the last 60 years. Featuring interviews with Hollywood icons and cinematic luminaries, some who launched their careers within Cormanís unforgettable world of filmmaking, including Paul W.S. Anderson, Peter Bogdanovich, Robert De Niro, Peter Fonda, Pam Grier, Ron Howard, Eli Roth, Martin Scorsese, William Shatner and Jack Nicholson, along with many others, this documentary chronicles how Corman created his cult film empire, one low-budget success at a time, capitalizing on undiscovered talent, and pushing the boundaries of independent filmmaking.

Director Alex Stapleton weaves archival footage following Rogerís illustrious career: From his early days of genre-defining classics including the original Fast and Furious, the original Little Shop of Horrors, The Crybaby Killer, The Intruder, House of Usher, and The Wild Angels (which at that point in 1966 was his 100th film) Ė to present day video of him and his wife Julie on location, still at work as they continue to produce and distribute films outside the studio system: fast, cheap and out-of-this-world!

Distributed by Anchor Bay Films, Cormanís World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel is rated R for some violent images, nudity and language.
