The much anticipated theatrical Premiere of the sci-fi revenge thriller “RoboWoman” from multi award-winning director Dustin Ferguson (“Nemesis 5: The New Model” which is currently available on Redbox) will take place at the Laemmle Glendale at 207 N Maryland Avenue on Thursday, April 11, 2019. The film will be presented as a late-night “Grindhouse Experience”, complete with actual Grindhouse movie trailers and bumpers from the 1970s and 80s. The red carpet will begin at 9:30pm, and the Premiere of “RoboWoman: The Grindhouse Experience” will start at 10pm. There will be a Q & A after the film with Ferguson, the stars of RoboWoman and the film’s crew.
“RoboWoman” follows Vivica Stevens (Dawna Lee Heising, “Blade Runner”, “Nemesis 5”, “Revenge of The Samurai Cop”) on her last night at a temp agency as she accepts a date with a persistent co-worker. Soon she finds herself cornered in a dark park at night and brutally attacked, raped and left for dead by her date and his deranged friends. She’s found barely alive by her roommate, played by Sue Price (Albert Pyun’s “Nemesis 2-5”) and undergoes illegal, experimental “cybernetic” surgery where she is given a replacement robotic arm and visor to correct her vision. However, the new implants don’t settle well because it isn’t long before she decides to seek revenge with the aid of her new attachments. One by bloody one she stalks and kills her attackers before the shocking and revealing conclusion!
The film features many notable celebrity appearances by Mel Novak (Quentin Tarantino favorite “Game of Death”, Steve McQueen: American Icon with Mel Gibson) as the deranged “Doctor Michaels”, Aki Aleong (“Missing In Action III”) as an innocent victim at the wrong place at the wrong time and Brinke Stevens (“Slumber Party Massacre”) as the evil Corporate Executive behind it all. Additionally, Vida Ghaffari (“The Mindy Project”), Jonathan Nation (“Elvis Lives”), Thom Mulligan (“FBI: The Untold Stories”),, Peter Stickles (“Showgirls 2”), Freddy James (“A Doggone Adventure”), Mark Popejoy (“The Amityville Legacy”), Clint Beaver (“Nemesis 5”), Zach Muhs (Albert Pyun’s “Bad Ass Angels And Demons”), Gregory Blair (“Garden Party Massacre”), Shaun Vetick (“Flyover Country”), Ken May (“House of Pain”) and newcomer Nathan Gershon (“Meathook Massacre 5”) appear in the film as well. It was written by Mike Reeb (“Nemesis 5”, “House of Pain”), produced by the late Randy Scornavacca and executive produced by Aki Aleong. The special effects were created by Joe Castro (“Wishmaster 3 & 4”, “Night of The Demons 3”).
Ferguson has announced that “RoboWoman” will become a trilogy. The action revenge thriller “RoboWoman”, the first film in the “RoboWoman” trilogy, will be released in early 2019 by Wild Eye Releasing. The second film will begin shooting in Fall 2019. Dawna Lee Heising is cast as the heroic Vivica Stevens (aka RoboWoman) in the trilogy.
