Now, thanks to Vimeo and the fine people at Movies.com, we have a trailer for Extraterrestrial and even in this tease it looks more interesting than the majority of sci-fi flicks out there. It’s very different in terms of what it shows but there’s a playfulness and almost spirited determination to do something different that put me in mind of Panos Cosmatos’ Beyond the Black Rainbow as a decidely different take on the genre.
A while ago, when the film was first announced Bloody-Disgusting quoted the director as he talked of the project,
[The film] will not be like a War of the Worlds with Tom Cruise, where a regular person manages to somehow closely witness all major invasion events. He writes that most people will experience a global alien invasion without even knowing it has happened, by listening to rumors, or engaging in pointless activities. Hence Extraterrestre.
It’s a great trailer, and I cannot wait to see it, hopefully we’ll have news of its UK release soon.
