Roger Corman’s YouTube channel extends internationally
Corman’s Drive-In channel now available overseas on Youtube.
US filmmaker Roger Corman and Julie Corman are expanding their YouTube subscription channel.
Following its launch in the US and Canada last month, Corman’s Drive-In has been made available in the UK, Japan, Brazil, France, Spain, Russia, South Korea and Australia.
Corman personally selects the films that debut each month on the channel, chosen from their vault of 400 titles which include pictures such as Grand Theft Auto and The Fast and the Furious.
Many of the films are being offered for the first time digitally, exclusive to the YouTube channel.
Some of the first titles to be offered include a double-feature of Jack Nicholson’s debut films; sci–fi Starcrash, the original Piranha and the grindhouse sexploitation Big Doll House.
The channel also features a library of exclusive content including sneak peeks of upcoming features; direct access to Roger and Julie Corman through personal anecdotes and video responses to select subscriber questions.
Also a resource for fans and filmmakers are exclusive interviews with cast and crew Corman discovered, including directors Joe Dante and Allan Arkush, Jurassic Park DoP Dean Cundey and Transformers stuntman John Branagan.
Offered as a subscription programming service for $3.99 per month, a rotating selection of 30 movie titles will be refreshed, along with “Corman’s Take” and other original content monthly.
The Cormans continue to produce four to five films a year from their offices in Los Angeles.
