It looks as though ‘Star Wars VII’ may have some competition for sci-fi movie of the year, as ‘Lazer Team’ gets an impressive new trailer.
Okay, not quite… but this rather cool-looking sci-fi comedy from Rooster Teeth is set to take the world by storm, as its official trailer debuts online. And while it may look a tad cheesy, it seems that’s rather the point. And it looks like a barrel of laughs.
Directed by Matt Hullum (of online sensation ‘Red vs. Blue’), ‘Lazer Team’ stars Burnie Burns, Gavin Free, Michael Jones and Colton Dunn as four hapless idiots who stumble upon a super suit that might just save humanity… if it had managed to get into the right hands.
Instead, they ended up with it.
Imagine if Earthworm Jim’s supersuit had been found by the cast of ‘hot Tub Time Machine’ and you’ll have some idea of how this rather simple (but hilariously effective) concept works.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“LAZER TEAM 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.”
Although it’s come right out of left field, ‘Lazer Team’ has already become a global sensation after the debut of its impressive trailer. And it looks as though this could be one of the surprise hit sci-fi movies of the year.
I’ll be honest – I hadn’t even heard of ‘Lazer Team’ before today. But based on this trailer, I can’t wait to see more.
