Rooster Teeth Announces “Lazer Team” Release Date & YouTube Red Partnership

Lazer Team 1

Continuing to build hype for its new film, Lazer Team, Rooster Teeth announced this week the release dated of the highly anticipated Indiegogo project.

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.

Lazer Team, which recently premiere at the 2015 Fantastic Festival in Austin, Texas, is set to hit theaters this January and Indiegogo backers will receive their physical and digital versions of the film. Rooster Teeth also announced that the film will be available to view through YouTube’s membership service, YouTube Red. 

Lazer TeamMatt Hullum, the CEO of Rooster Teeth, declared:

“Rooster Teeth is thrilled to partner with Youtube to bring Lazer Team to this exciting new platform. We want to make sure that Lazer Team reaches the broadest audience possible, and that our fans worldwide have easy access to watch it anytime, anywhere. Youtube’s powerful digital distribution channel ensures that this will happen.”

YouTube Red is set to launch on October 28th and offers up membership services, includes ad-free videos, for the same price as Netflix.
