New York, NY – August 25, 2010 – The wait is over! After months of Internet viral buzz,
Roger Corman’s eagerly anticipated Sharktopus -- starring Oscar and Golden Globe
nominee Eric Roberts -- will premiere on Syfy Saturday, September 25, at 9PM (ET/PT).

In Sharktopus, Roberts (The Expendables/The Dark Knight) plays a research scientist
who, with his talented daughter (Sara Malakul Lane/Belly of the Beast), develops a
secret military weapon -- a hybrid shark/octopus that can be controlled by electrical
implants. But when the controls break down, the monster goes on a killing rampage at
the resort beaches of Mexico.

Roberts received Golden Globe nominations for his starring roles in King of the Gypsies
(1978) and Star 80 (1983). He was nominated for the 1985 Academy Award for Best
Supporting Actor for Runaway Train. In 1987, he won the Theatre World Award for his
Broadway debut performance in Burn This.

In The Dark Knight, Roberts portrayed Sal Maroni, a Gotham City Mafia boss who hires
The Joker (Heath Ledger) to kill Batman (Christian Bale). His other memorable roles
include The Expendables, Raggedy Man, The Pope of Greenwich Village, Nobody’s
Fool, Final Analysis and A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.

Roger Corman, who received an Honorary 2010 Oscar, is the legendary director and
producer of numerous low-budget cult classics, among them It Conquered the World,
Teenage Doll, The Little Shop of Horrors, House of Usher, Pit and the Pendulum,
Premature Burial, The Raven, The Masque of the Red Death, The Wild Angels and The
Trip.
Sharktopus is produced by Roger Corman and Julie Corman, and directed by Declan
O’Brien (Wrong Turn 3, Cyclops, Monster Ark, Rock Monster).
