LOS ANGELES — XBIZ Feature Studio of the Year Wicked Pictures is hosting a private theatrical screening of director Sam Hain’s "Horizon" tonight in West L.A.

The evening will begin with a private cocktail reception, and following the screening, Hain and his cast will take the stage for an exclusive Q&A session with reporters.

At press time, Wicked Girls Jessica Drake, Kaylani Lei and Alektra Blue, as well as other cast members such as Kimberly Kane, Misty Stone, Rocco Reed, Bill Bailey and Xander Corvus are all expected to attend.

"Horizon" is the first adult film to be shot entirely with the Red Epic camera system, the same technology first used to create Steven Soderbergh’s new mainstream thriller "Contagion." 

In the wake of "Contagion," several other Hollywood productions have announced their usage of the Red Epic camera package, including Ridley Scott's "Prometheus," Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit," and James Cameron's "Avatar 2."

Wicked said that Hain's sci-fi adventure will become the first movie to be screened theatrically with 2K digital resolution. 

"Horizon" has already garnered crossover attention. Gawker Media’s io9.com, a premier portal for science fiction and futurism, posted the film’s YouTube trailer on its home page, earning the clip nearly 40,000 plays in less than 14 days.

And the top horror and fantasy periodical Fangoria will be covering tonight’s screening for their website and magazine.

"Horizon" will be released on Sept. 30 in a combo pack that will include the DVD, Blu-ray and downloadable editions of the film.

For Hain, the decision to screen the film for his audience in a 2K-equipped mainstream theater was a critical one.

"I'm confident that when the audience watches 'Horizon' they'll feel as though they're enjoying a high quality mainstream production," Hain said.
