With less than a week until its sci-fi/comedy Lazer Team premieres, Rooster Teeth has released details on where and when fans can see it. The film first hit Indiegogo in 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.
The film’s story reads:
“When four small-town losers stumble across an alien crash site containing an incredible battle suit, they soon find themselves responsible for the fate of the entire planet. With this new alien equipment genetically bound to them, and the government hot on their heels, the foursome have no choice but to work together as one to save humanity. All they have to do is 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. Based on a true event, Lazer Team is directed by Matt Hullum and stars Burnie Burns, Gavin Free, Michael Jones, Allie DeBerry, Colton Dunn and features Alan Ritchson.”
The film will be showed in the U.S., UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Showtimes are through Tugg, which is a web-platform that enables individuals, groups and organizations to set up personalized screenings in theaters across the country. Here’s how Tugg works:
- Fill in your desired event details – date, time, location
- Select date that is 5-6 weeks out
- Select a date that is Mon-Thursday
- Tugg coordinates details with you and theater
- Tugg creates event page for you with threshold
- Tugg emails tickets to attendees when threshold is met
- Tugg handles shipping film to theater
- Some venues may require you to take tickets or direct guests to auditoriums
Tickets need to be purchased through the event page, which can be found here. You cannot buy the tickets at the theater. Lazer Team will also be available on YouTube Red in the U.S. in early February (YouTube has yet to announce international release dates).
