Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo, the mind behind time-travel yarn “Timecrimes”, is set to premiere his latest film, “Extraterrestrial”, at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. Just in time to start building hype for what is being called a romantic sci-fi comedy, a new batch of images have hit the web.
Julio and Julia don’t know each other, but they wake up in the same bed horribly hungover and with no memory of the night before. He falls in love with her almost immediately – she does not. The last thing they expect to discover is that an alien invasion has taken place. Vigalondo melds science fiction, romance and black comedy in his latest feature about the darkly fascinating aspects of the human psyche.
“Extraterrestrial” sounds like it could be a really good time. What makes it even more difficult for a sappy, lovesick guy to make his one-night-stand love him? An alien invasion, that’s what. There is definite potential here.
“Extraterrestrial” stars Michelle Jenner, Carlos Areces, Julián Villagrán, Raúl Cimas Miguel Noguera. TIFF runs from September 8th—18th, obviously in Toronto, in the mysterious, mythical northern land of Canada.
