Here’s what looks to be a cool movie that’s been slowly crawling and scraping its way towards release literally for years, now. You may have heard of it (since we’ve mentioned it here before) – it’s called Outlander and it has the sweet little concept of pitting Vikings against aliens.

You’re looking at an exclusive new pic from the movie above, which shows a monster (called a MOORWEN in the film) assaulting a Viking village. A priest has stepped forward in a what will soon be a strikingly unsuccessful attempt to stop it. The light comes from the creature itself, which is bioluminescent. (Thanks to writer/executive producer of the film, Dirk Blackman)

We posted a few weeks ago that Outlander was finally getting a theatrical U.S. release date and we have an update for you. It’s going to have a limited release on January 23rd in the following cities:

  • San Francisco, CA
  • Chicago, IL
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • Washington D.C.
  • Dallas, TX
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Boston, MA
  • Houston, TX
  • Seattle, WA
  • Miami, FL
  • San Diego, CA
  • Detroit, MI
  • Sacramento, CA
  • Orlando, FL
  • Tampa, FL

The hope is that it will get a wider distribution, but there’s no guarantee of that since the distributor, The Weinstein Co. is strapped for cash.

As a bonus, here are some more stills from the film:

If this movie doesn’t end up getting a wide distribution at the very least I’ll be picking up a copy on DVD or preferably, Blu-ray. :-)
