Heading to the 2014 New York Comic Con next week? Then mark your calendar for its opening day, when the inspired minds behind IFC Midnight’s upcoming sci-fi thriller Extraterrestrial will be beaming down to NYCC for a sneak peek panel presentation.
Filmmakers The Vicious Brothers and actors Michael Ironside and Brittany Allen will be on the scene on Thursday, October 9th, at 5:15 pm (Javits Center).
If that wasn’t enough, sci-fi fans will also get an advance look at Extraterrestrial when the film screens as part of the inaugural New York Super Week on Thursday at 9:00 pm (IFC Center), followed by a Q&A with filmmakers and talent.
The 2014 New York Comic Con runs from October 9th through the 12th.
Extraterrestrial hits VOD outlets on October 17th and limited theaters on November 21st. Freddie Stroma and Brittany Allen star in the indie feature produced by Randy Manis, Kim Arnott, Shawn Angelski, and Martin Fisher. It’s written and directed by The Vicious Brothers.
From The Vicious Brothers, creators of Grave Encounters, comes a different kind of encounter, one of EXTRATERRESTRIAL origin. Still reeling from her parents’ divorce, April (Daytime Emmy winner Brittany Allen) is dragged back to the vacation cabin she spent fond summers at as a child accompanied by a group of friends. Her trip down memory lane takes a dramatic and terrifying turn when a fireball descends from the sky and explodes in the nearby woods.
Led by her boyfriend, played by Freddie Stroma (Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince, Pitch Perfect), the group members venture out toward the crash site and discover the remnants of a ship from another planet along with footprints that suggest its alien occupants are still alive. The college friends soon find themselves caught in the middle of something bigger and more terrifying than anything they could ever imagine.
