Illustration for article titled From time travel to alien invasion: Nacho Vigalondo dishes on Extraterrestre

Nacho Vigalondo took the genre world by storm a few years ago with Timecrimes. The unlikely time travel adventure marked Vigaondo as another bright voice in Spanish cinema. Now he's back with a mysterious new SF flick about aliens.


The director has been pretty tight lipped about his next project but late last week he shared the first image from his upcoming project titled Extraterrestre (translation: Alien).

The film will present a large-scale alien invasion through the eyes of an ordinary individual. The other tidbits I can glean from the various bits floating around the Spanish interwebs indicate that the film will concentrate on an invasion as it might actually occur. The general public, living outside the immediately affected zones, won't know or care exactly what's going on. Vigalondo had me at alien invasion but if he's pushing at really blowing our minds by opening the door on humanity's ability to hide from reality, I'm definitely more than a little curious.


Here's a plot outline, translated from Spanish:

A group of people experience an alien invasion, far away from the invaded zones, through the rumors and testimonies of other people.

Now don't get too excited about the image I mentioned earlier because as you can see above, it doesn't show anything that immediately points at what the film will look like.

The film goes into production in July.
