Rooster Teeth fans, the wait is almost over for the film Lazer Team.
Even better? Lazer Team will premiere in Rooster Teeth’s hometown of Austin, TX at Fantastic Fest 2015. The film screens Thursday September 24, 2015 at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar. Director Matt Hullum and stars Burnie Burns, Alan Ritchson, Colton Dunn, Michael Jones and Gavin free will be attending, as well as offering a post-screening Q&A session.
“It’s a tremendous honor to hold the World Premiere of our first feature film in our home town,” said LAZER TEAM director and Rooster Teeth CEO Matt Hullum. “Getting to this point has been an incredible journey, and we couldn’t have done it without our talented cast and crew, the generous Indiegogo backers, and all of the fans that have supported us along the way.”
Here’s the official synopsis:
LAZER TEAM begins decades ago when the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence project received a one-time signal from outer space, which was never decoded. Or so we were told. Unbeknownst to the general public, the secretly translated signal said two things: we are not alone, and conflict is coming. Working in secrecy, the US government has been training a single Champion of Earth to face the coming battle. A suit of immense power, delivered by alien allies and meant for Earth’s Champion, is instead stumbled upon by four small-town losers who become genetically bound to the armor.
With the government chasing after them and desperate to remove their new equipment at ANY cost, the foursome must learn to use these strange alien devices, train for a battle against an omnipotent enemy, and not kill each other in the process. Mankind’s darkest hour needs our brightest team. They may not be strong, smart or talented…but they’re LAZER TEAM.
