Anchor Bay Films is bringing last year’s documentary, Corman’s World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel to DVD and Blu-ray on March 27. The doc presents a tribute to Roger Corman, Hollywoods most prolific writer-director-producer, and seminal influencing force in modern moviemaking over the past 60 years.
Directed by Alex Stapleton, Cormans World interview roster boasts such modern Hollywood icons and cinematic luminaries as Oscar winners Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Jonathan Demme, and Ron Howard; Eli Roth, David Carradine, Peter Fonda, William Shatner, Pam Grier, John Sayles, Brett Ratner, Bruce Dern, Paul W.S. Anderson, Peter Bogdanovich, and many more actors and filmmakers.
Roger Corman is perhaps the most prolific and influential Hollywood filmmaker in the history of the medium. His immeasurable imprint on American cinema not only spans over six decades, but has resulted in creating an indelible cinematic body of work as well as a legacy of training the next generation of actors, writer, directors and producers many of whom have created cinema masterpieces of their own.
Bonus features on the Cormans World Blu-ray and DVD include extended interviews, special video messages to Roger from select interviewees and the theatrical trailer.
