Rooster Teeth’s Indiegogo Success “Lazer Team” Set to Premiere at the 2015 Fantastic Fest in Texas

On Wednesday, the team at Rooster Teeth announced that Indiegogo success Lazer Team will officially be premiering at the 2015 Fantastic Festival in Austin, Texas.

Lazer TeamLazer Team hit Indiegogo July 2014 to raise $650,000 and within three days raised well over $1M. By the end of its crowdfunding run, the campaign hit $2,480,099 thanks to 2,197 backers.

Per its synopsis, the film begins decades ago when the Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence project received a onetime 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: One, we are not alone, and two, the galaxy is a dangerous place.

Working in total secrecy, the US government has been training a single Champion of Earth – a warrior of incredible skill to don a suit of unimaginable power designed by new alien allies in preparation for Earth’s battle for survival against an evil race of aliens. Unfortunately, the suit never made it all the way to its intended destination. Instead of a lone savior, four hapless idiots find the suit and are thrust into the role of heroes as the titular Lazer Team.

In a recent release, the organizers of the Fantastic Festival shared:

Lazer Team 2“Fantastic Fest will also host the World Premiere of LAZER TEAM, the first feature film from web series gods Rooster Teeth. LAZER TEAM director Matt Hullum and cast members Burnie Burns, Alan Ritchson, Colton Dunn, Michael Jones, and Gavin Free will be in attendance to celebrate the highly anticipated sci-fi comedy and join Fantastic Fest’s official opening night party, presented by Rooster Teeth.”

The Fantastic Festival kicks off September 24th and runs until October 1st.  Check out the film’s first trailer below!
