Focus World Bringing Home an Extraterrestrial
Great. Now we've got the damned theme from E.T. lodged in our skulls. In any event Nacho Vigalondo's out of this world horror/sci-fi/comedy Extraterrestrial or Extraterrestre is coming home and we've got your details right here!
From the Press Release
Focus World has partnered with web platform Tugg to release Nacho Vigalondo's sci-fi comedy "Extraterrestrial" in theaters and VOD on June 15th.
Film will open in select cities including Brooklyn, Seattle and North Hollywood, as well as Alama Drafthouse locations in Texas. As part of the unique distribution strategy, pic will also be available for audiences nationwide to create their own theatrical screenings through the Tugg platform, where an individual can create personalized theatrical screenings by selecting the date, time, and theater of their choice, and then spreading the word. Once enough people commit to attending, the event will be confirmed and fans can host their own screening of the movie.
"Extraterrestrial," which hails from the Spanish writer-director of "Timecrimes," made its world premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. An alien-invasion tale, pic follows two strangers in Madrid, fresh off a one-night stand, who find their morning after disrupted by a suspicious neighbor, a jealous ex and a mysterious flying saucer that hovers over the city.
"We're thrilled to be able to bring Nacho's work back to audiences in the United States. This strategy allows his fans to see 'Extraterrestrial' either on the big screen with an audience, or in the comfort of their own homes," said Focus' Avy Eschenasy, who closed the deal along with Kent Sanderson.
Entertainment One will release "Extraterrestrial" on DVD later in this summer.
