Focus Features announced today that they will distribute Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo’s science fiction comedy EXTRATERRESTRIAL in partnership with Tugg, Inc. The movie will be released in theaters and via video on demand (VOD) beginning JUNE 15th and will also be available for audiences nationwide to create their own theatrical screenings through the Tugg platform.
We've heard about this Tugg business before; last month it was revealed that Paramount Pictures is planning on distributing THE LOVED ONES via the platform.
In Extraterrestrial, a world premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, Spanish writer/director Nacho Vigalondo follows up his cult feature Timecrimes by way of another sly and unexpected twist on a sci-fi genre – an alien-invasion tale. Two strangers in Madrid, fresh off a one-night stand, find their morning after disrupted by a suspicious neighbor, a jealous ex, and a mysterious flying saucer suddenly hovering over the city.
Entertainment One will release Extraterrestrial on DVD later in the summer. Check out the promo trailer below.
