Virtually Heroes – The lost Roger Corman Sundance film gets a trailer

This lost Roger Corman Sundance favorite is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of its world premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

Virtually Heroes is directed and produced by GJ Echternkamp (Frank and Cindy, The Car: Road to Revenge) and stars Robert Baker (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Out of Time), Brent Chase (Shameless, I Am the Night), Katie Savoy (How I Met Your Mother, NCIS: New Orleans) and Mark Hamill (Star Wars, Slipstream, Batman: The Animated Adventures). The film is executive produced by Roger Corman (Frankenstein Unbound, The Wild Angels)

Two self-aware characters in a Call of Duty-inspired video game battle endless enemies and their own existential crises. With the help of Mark Hamill’s Yoda-like monk, they attempt to win the game and get the girl.

“We’re thrilled to bring this lost Corman project to our audiences,” said Screen Media in a statement. “The film is a perfect blend of action and campy, tongue-in-cheek comedy, and will be sure to delight viewers – whether this is their first foray into the world of Roger Corman or fiftieth.”

“Virtually Heroes was an ambitious project in many ways, and not exactly what you would call a conventional film,” said GJ Echternkamp. “I’m so glad that Screen Media is at last bringing this cult movie out of the shadows and onto their platform to be discovered by a new audience.”

Screen Media will release the film Digitally on 17th January 2023.
