“LAZER TEAM” COMING EXCLUSIVELY TO THEATERS AND YOUTUBE RED BEGINNING JANUARY 27
Austin, TX – Monday, December 14, 2015 – Sci-fi comedy LAZER TEAM, the first feature film from pioneering creative studio Rooster Teeth, is coming to YouTube Red in the U.S. and theaters across North America, the UK, Australia and other territories beginning January 27. LAZER TEAM made history in July 2014 when it broke Indiegogo’s record for Most Funded Film Campaign, and thrilled audiences when the film celebrated its World Premiere at Fantastic Fest, the largest genre festival in the U.S.
In the film, four small-town losers stumble across an alien crash site containing an incredible battle suit. One round of bickering and a quick scuffle later, they each find themselves wearing a piece of the suit, which has genetically bound itself to them. Now, they must to work together as one to save humanity. With the government chasing after them and desperate to remove their new equipment at ANY cost, the foursome must learn to use a strange alien device meant for only one person, train for a battle against an omnipotent enemy, and not kill each other in the process. They may not be strong, smart, or talented… but they’re Lazer Team.
“We are thrilled that LAZER TEAM will be released simultaneously on the big screen in theaters everywhere and digitally with YouTube Red,” said Matt Hullum, LAZER TEAM director and Rooster Teeth CEO. “We couldn’t have done it without our community, from our generous IndieGoGo backers to the fans that have supported us along the way, and this release plan will allow us to share the film with all of them.”
