Roger Corman will unleash the Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader upon Comic-Con!

Roger Corman's ATTACK OF THE 50 FOOT CHEERLEADER is headed to San Diego next month. Corman will introduce the EPIX Original Movie at 3D screening following a special panel on JULY 14th at Comic-Con. The screening is at 12AM @ Reading Cinemas.

About this panel... Mr. Corman will be joined by none other than William Shatner - who is presenting his own project, the documentary WILLIAM SHATNER'S GET A LIFE! - and Kevin Smith, who will moderate a discussion between the two. A can't-miss proposition, if you ask me...

If you can't make the screening of CHEERLEADER, it will be premiering AUGUST 25th at 10pm EST on EPIX.

Here's the lowdown on this cheesefest: 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.

Extra Tidbit: Shatner starred in the 1962 Corman film THE INTRUDER, which had no sci-fi/horror elements at all, instead telling the story of racial tensions in a small Southern town.
