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.

Instead of a lone savior, four hapless idiots find the suit and are thrust into the role of heroes as the titular Lazer Team.
Matt Hullum, Lazer Team director and Rooster Teeth CEO, in a release, stated:
“We are thrilled that Lazer Team will be released simultaneously on the big screen in theaters everywhere and digitally with YouTube Red. 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.”
Fans interested in attending the theatrical screenings can visit LazerTeamtheMovie.com to purchase tickets. The film stars Burnie Burns, Gavin Free, Michael Jones, Allie DeBerry, Colton Dunn and features Alan Ritchson.
