Formerly known as The Visitors, The Vicious Brothers new sci-fi horror was re-titled Extraterrestrial (not to be confused with the Spanish sci-fi comedy directed by Nacho Vigalondo) last year, and IFC Midnight picked up US rights at Cannes in May.
The first trailer for the film has now been revealed, and it aint bad, and certainly looks like the directors of Grave Encounters (which was actually not bad until the finale) have added their own spin on the Close Encounters genre of alien sci-fi, and given it an added boost of nastiness.
The Vicious Brothers write and direct Extraterrestrial, and Freddie Stroma (Harry Potter, Pitch Perfect)stars in the film which is produced by Randy Manis, Kim Arnott, Shawn Angelski, and Martin Fisher. Brittany Allen, Melanie Papalia, Jesse Moss and Anja Savcic also star.
Extraterrestrial arrives in the US on VOD October 17th and in limited theatres on November 21st. No UK dates have been announced yet.
From The Vicious Brothers, the 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.
Lead by her boyfriend, played by Freddie Stroma (Harry Potter & The Half Blooded Prince, Pitch Perfect), the group 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.
