Hey folks, we have kind of a quirky giveaway for you this week. Alien Trespass opens on April 3rd and while I haven't seen the film yet it looks like it could actually be a lot of fun. It's a riff on the cheesy classic sci-fi films of the 1950s with a couple of twists which I'll describe later (they're not plot spoiler twists, don't worry).
We're giving away three Lobby Cards sets from the film, with one of the sets signed by film leads Eric McCormack, Jenni Baird, Dan Lauria and R.W. Goodwin.
Here's the official synopsis of the film:
Set in 1957, ALIEN TRESPASS chronicles a fiery object from space that crashes into a mountaintop in the California desert, bringing the threat of disaster to Earth. Out of the flying saucer escapes a murderous creature - the Ghota, which is bent on destroying all life forms on the planet. A benevolent alien from the spaceship, Urp, inhabits the body of Ted Lewis (Eric McCormack) - a local astronomer - and with the help of Tammy, (Jenni Baird) a waitress from the local diner, sets out to save mankind.
We covered the Alien Trespass panel at WonderCon and some interesting things came out of that. The film was created as an honest homage to those (now) campy films from the 1950s - in order to not make the film seem like a farce, the idea is that this film actually WAS filmed back then, but was lost in a studio vault for many years, only resurfacing now. Great pains were taken to make the film as authentic to the period as possible in every facet of the production, from costume design to materials used to create the sets all the down to the type of film stock used to shoot the movie.
The other "twist" is that the hero of the film is a woman, very unusual for sci-fi films at the time.
Based on the press materials, Alien Trespass is family-friendly, so it might make for a great, nostalgic outing for parents and kids. I'll be on the lookout for this in my area as my 12 year old daughter is well versed in the 1950s sci-fi classics. :-)
Oh yeah, what about the contest? We're giving away three (3) sets of classic 1950s style Lobby Cards from the film. Two winners each will get a set of two and one lucky winner will get the signed version. They're 11x14 inches and if you're a fan of classic sci-fi memorabilia I'd say they're worthy of framing.
Here they are:
The contest ends some time on the day Alien Trespass opens, April 3rd, and is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada. This time we'll make entering easy:
