Roger Corman And William Shatner At Comic Con 2012? This is going to be exciting!
Comic Con 2012 is almost one week away and as Zennie62 is headed for coverage of the largest celebration of the popular arts for the third straight year (and with Tout.com as sponsor) I thought it would be fun and informative for you to present some of the press releases I have been sent thus far. Given that many of them are stuffed full of information, rewriting them seemed stupid to do – something would be left out.
Before I mention Roger Corman And William Shatner, followers of Zennie62 will remember the epic 30 minute press conference from last year, when Mr. Shatner presented Star Trek: Captains. If you missed it, here’s the video:
Here’s the Roger Corman And William Shatner At Comic Con 2012 press release:
‘William Shatner’s Get a Life!’ @ Comic-Con
Shatner will introduce the EPIX Original Documentary at a screening directly following the panel on July 14th at Comic-Con. The screening is at 7:00PM @ Reading Cinemas.
William Shatner’s Get a Life! | Premiering July 28 at 8pm EST on EPIX
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.
