SYFY SATURDAY ORIGINAL MOVIE STONEHENGE APOCALYPSE ROCKS THE EARTH TO ITS CORE, DRAWING 2.1 MILLION TOTAL VIEWERS DURING JUNE 12 PREMIERE

New York, New York – June 15, 2010 – Syfy’s latest Saturday Original Movie, Stonehenge Apocalypse – which starred Hill Harper and Misha Collins – drew 2.14 million total viewers during its premiere on Saturday, June 12, from 9-11PM (ET/PT).

The movie also garnered 847,000 Adults 25-54 while averaging a 1.63 household rating. For the night, Syfy was the #3 network in prime (8-11PM) among Adults 25-54.

In Stonehenge Apocalypse, the ancient sandstone pillars of Stonehenge suddenly come to life, shifting along the earth’s power grid and creating devastating natural disasters around the world.  Is Stonehenge really an alien terraforming machine, originally used to create a fertile, life-sustaining planet?  And is its accidental re-activation going to destroy the earth? It is up to brilliant and eccentric radio show host Misha Collins (Supernatural) to prevent this by stopping a crazed cult leader (Hill Harper, CSI NY), eager for Armageddon. A production of Cinetel.

The next Syfy Saturday Original Movie will be Roger Corman’s Dinocroc vs. Supergator, premiering Saturday, June 26, at 9PM (ET/PT), stars David Carradine (Kill Bill) as a scientist working under a secret government charter.  In the movie, directed by Jim Wynorski, a lush, tropical island becomes a terrifying “Green Hell” when two giant creatures escape an experimental facility and begin rampaging toward populated beaches, where unwary tourists soon find themselves on the monsters’ menu.

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities.
