‘Extraterrestrial’ Trailer Shoves a Space Ship Into Your One Night Stand

By  · Published on May 16th, 2012

Nacho Vigalondo’s Timecrimes was a different kind of time travel movie, and his second feature, Extraterrestrial, is definitely a different kind of alien invasion.

The new trailer has a creepy sort of vibe, both from the miles-wide ship that lands and from the young man who wakes up in a gorgeous woman’s apartment. Apparently he’s got incredible beer goggles and a desire to video tape her while she sleeps.

It’s a great trailer for a great movie, but it’s not telling the whole story. Check it out for yourself:

Feel free to read my spoiler-free review of the film, but keep in mind that the movie itself is very different than what might be expected simply from this trailer. It’s a science fiction story with a focus on interpersonal relationship drama (and comedy) as, once again, Vigalondo twists the standard tropes for his own creative purposes.
