Fantastic Fest 2011 Favorite “Extraterrestrial” to Open at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar on July 13th

Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar announces a special one-week engagement of EXTRATERRESTRIAL

EXTRATERRESTRIAL is the sexy and hilarious new sci-fi comedy from Nacho Vigalondo (the director of TIMECRIMES). When Julio wakes up in a strange apartment after a night of partying, he’s pleasantly surprised to  discover it belongs to a beautiful one-night-stand he can’t remember – Julia.

What’s already an awkward situation is made even more so when they discover a giant flying saucer hovering above the city, which is now  deserted. Now Julio must contend with a jealous ex-boyfriend, an eccentric neighbor – and very possibly the end of the world!

EXTRATERRESTRIAL wowed audiences at the Toronto International Film  Festival 2011 and Fantastic Fest 2011, where the film won “Best  Actor: Julián Villagrán” in the Fantastic Features category.

The film also screened during the Cine las Americas International Film Festival last April and was also well received.

WHEN:     Friday, July 13, 2012 – Thursday, July 19, 2012

WHERE:  Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar, 1120 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704
