Paramount Insurge today announced that the long-lost Area 51, directed by Paranormal Activity‘s Oren Peli, will receive one-weekend-only limited engagements exclusively at 16 Alamo Drafthouse Cinema locations in May! Additionally, the films will be available day-and-date on VOD and all digital platforms.
Area 51 will debut Friday, May 15th and run through Sunday, May 17th with one showtime daily. Tickets are on sale online and at participating Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas box offices beginning Monday, May 11th. The found-footage horror film will also be available May 15th on VOD and all digital platforms.
BELOW IS THE TRAILER for the film that has an awesome set up, which is why I stopped watched about halfway through. I’m already sold on the concept and hope that several years of “tinkering” pay off.
“Area 51 follows Reid, who has always been obsessed with UFOs. While on a weekend trip to Vegas, he convinces two friends to join him on a mission to break into Area 51, where they find terrifying proof of alien presence.”
Reid Warner, Jamel King, Ben Rovner and Jelena Nik star.
Area 51, written by Peli and Christopher Denham and produced by Jason Blum and Steven Schneider.
