Fathom Events has teamed with RiffTrax to bring more cheesy cinema to audiences as part of the groups ‘RiffTrax Live: 2019’ series.
RiffTrax’s Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett (of Mystery Science Theater 3000® fame) are back in cinemas in June to celebrate the 10th anniversary of RiffTrax Live with an all-new riff on the Casper Van Dien space odyssey “Star Raiders.”
It’s the year 2762. The galaxy is plagued with warring factions using hokey special effects to destroy each other. Out of this chaos a hero rises: the dashing, exquisitely bearded Captain Saber Raine (Casper Van Dien). Saber and his elite squad of commandos (other actors) embark on a dangerous quest to save the Prince and Princess of an unnamed planet from the clutches of the Evil Overlord Sinjin – an overlord so evil HIS VERY SKULL IS FILLED WITH CHERRY JELL-O.
Can our heroes fend off Sinjin’s army of mutant androids and rescue the Prince and Princess? Probably! After all it’s Space Opera, but you never know! Join Mike, Kevin and Bill for an unforgettable Sword-And-Laser Swashbuckling-ly fun time, beamed to theaters.
RiffTrax Live will be released Thursday, June 6, 2019 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT/7 p.m. MT/8 p.m. PT (live) and rebroadcast on Tuesday, June 11 at 7:30 p.m. local time. Tickets for “RiffTrax Live: 2019” titles can be purchased at www.fathomevents.com/series/rifftrax-live
