Posted Thu Jan 19, 2012 at 01:00 PM PST by

One of the best reviewed films of 2011 comes to Blu-ray in March.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is prepping 'Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel' for Blu-ray on March 27.

Fresh from its theatrical release – where it received rave reviews from The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Hollywood Reporter, Daily Variety, The Village Voice and more – 'Corman’s World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel' presents a tantalizing and star-studded tribute to Roger Corman, Hollywood’s most prolific writer-director-producer, and seminal influencing force in modern moviemaking over the past 60 years.

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.

Directed by Alex Stapleton, 'Corman’s 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.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include extended interviews, special video messages to Roger from select interviewees and the theatrical trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
