SCI FI'S SATURDAY MOVIES DELIVER MORE THRILLS, CHILLS AND ACTION IN 2007!

28 Original Movies Including Exclusive Projects from Legendary Superhero Creator Stan Lee and Genre Idol Roger Corman

New York, NY - April 26, 2006 - SCI FI's booming Saturday night original movie franchise, promises more action, thrills, creatures, cataclysmic disasters and mythologically-based subject matter in 2007 with 28 new film projects slated for premiere. It was announced today by Thomas P. Vitale, Senior Vice President of Programming & Original Movies, SCI FI.

Featured on the 2007 slate are three films from comic book genius Stan Lee, one of which will feature the winner of July's 'Who Wants to be a Superhero?' -- a reality competition series Lee is producing with SCI FI. Next year will also bring two film projects with legendary genre auteur and "king of the drive-in movie" Roger Corman.

SCI FI's Saturday movie franchise is the Channel's homage to the classic popcorn feature, a re-imagination of cinema's most delectable sci-fi treats. Like the timeless fare that packed movie theaters and drive-ins, SCI FI's non-stop Saturday thrill rides offer thoroughly modern escapist fun, running the gamut from traditional creature features to horror flicks and sleek, contemporary thrillers.

New projects for 2007 include:

'CYCLOPS'

In this film from Roger Corman, set in ancient Rome, members of the Royal Guard have been mysteriously disappearing in the countryside. When the Emperor learns that the culprit is a giant Cyclops, he sends the Royal Guard to capture it and bring it back to Rome, where it becomes the featured event in the gladiator arena.

'SUPERGATOR'

In this second Roger Corman film, a giant alligator slinks out of a Louisiana swamp and wreaks havoc on neighboring townsfolk.

A satellite image reveals an ancient ship buried in the ice at the top of Turkey's Mount Ararat. Believed to be the biblical Noah's Ark, an expedition is formed to find the lost vessel. When the group discovers two arks, they must contend with the deadly creature Noah had hoped to drown at sea thousands of years ago - a creature that still lives inside the ancient wreckage.
