Alien Invasion Comedy SAVE YOURSELVES! Hits This Summer
Writer-directors Alex Huston Fischer & Eleanor Wilson’s alien sci-fi comedy Save Yourselves! debuted over at Sundance recently. And today we hear that Bleecker Street has snatched up global distribution and is planning to give the flick a theatrical release this summer.
John Reynolds, Sunita Mani, and Ben Sinclair star.
Deadline reports that the film follows a hip Brooklyn couple who like many of their friends find themselves dependent on technology and unable to put down their phones. Fearing their mindless scrolling may impact their connection with each other, they seize the chance to head to an isolated cabin in the woods, vowing to unplug from the outside world for a week.
Sheltered from texts and push notifications, they are blissfully unaware when aliens attack. As strange events unfold, the couple must figure out a way back to civilization — or what’s left of it.
Save Yourselves! is produced by Mandy Tagger Brockey, Adi Ezroni, and Kara Durrett. Keshet Studios plans to give the flick a theatrical release this summer. Are you excited about this flick? Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
