Nacho Vigalondo’s ‘Extraterrestrial’ Will Be Released June 15
Here’s the trailer for Extraterrestrial:
The film is called Extraterrestrial and it’s wonderful. You can read my positive review here but the film takes the sci-fi setting of an alien invasion and uses it to make a screwball comedy that would make Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn proud. Focus Features’ off shoot Focus World will release the film on June 15 on VOD and select cities across the country. Plus, other cities can request the movie on Tugg.com. Read more after the jump.
