See “Lazer Team”, in select theaters Jan. 27th.

More than a year after its record-setting Indiegogo campaign, Lazer Team will be released in select theaters in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the U.K. You can check for a screening in your area on the official website.

This marks the first feature film release from popular Austin, TX based production company Rooster Teeth, and features a mix of Rooster Teeth cast and Hollywood actors alike. Lazer Team will tell the story of a powerful suit developed collaboratively by the U.S. government and a race of friendly aliens discovered through the SETI project. Though the suit was made for a “Champion of Earth”, pieces of it get stuck on four small-town misfits, making them the only ones who can save the world.

Alan Ritchson of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Spike TV’s Blue Mountain State will play Adam, the “Champion of Earth”. Three of Rooster Teeth’s staff will play members of the Lazer Team:

Burnie Burns, Rooster Teeth founder and voice of Church from Red vs. Blue, is Hagan.

Michael Jones, voice actor for Rooster Teeth and Funimation, long-time Achievement Hunter, and star of A.H. series Rage Quit, is Zach.

Gavin Free, British Achievement Hunter/ Rooster Teeth creative director known for his popular “Slow Mo Guys” channel, is Woody.

The final team member, Herman, will be portrayed by Colton Dunn from Parks & Recreation, the new R.T. variety show, Rooster Teeth Entertainment Systemand the brand new NBC comedy Superstore, available for streaming with Hulu Plus.

Rounding out the initial cast is 19-year-old Alexandria DeBerry, from the Disney Channel’s A.N.T. Farm, as Hagan’s daughter, Mindy.
