Focus World partners for ‘Extraterrestrial’

Company teams with Web platform for release of sci-fi comedy

Focus World has partnered with Web platform Tugg to release Nacho Vigalondo’s sci-fi comedy “Extraterrestrial” in theaters and VOD on June 15.

Film will open in select cities including Brooklyn, Seattle and North Hollywood, as well as Alamo Drafthouse locations in Texas. As part of the unique distribution strategy, pic will also be available for audiences nationwide to create their own unspoolings through the Tugg platform: It allows an individual to create personalized theatrical screenings by selecting the date, time and theater of their choice and then spreading the word. Once enough people commit to attending, the event will be confirmed and fans can host their own screening of the movie.

“Extraterrestrial,” which hails from the Spanish writer-director of “Timecrimes,” world preemed at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival. The alien-invasion tale follows two strangers in Madrid, fresh off a one-night stand, who find their morning-after disrupted by a suspicious neighbor, a jealous ex and a mysterious flying saucer that hovers over the city.

“We’re thrilled to be able to bring Nacho’s work back to audiences in the United States. This strategy allows his fans to see ‘Extraterrestrial’ either on the bigscreen with an audience or in the comfort of their own homes,” said Focus’ Avy Eschenasy, who closed the deal along with Kent Sanderson.

Entertainment One will release “Extraterrestrial” on DVD later in this summer.

Focus World will also release “Worried About the Boy,” which stars Douglas Booth as Boy George.
