Watch the Trailer for Rooster Teeth’s Sci-Fi Comedy LAZER TEAM Now!

Let’s hear it for the good folks at Rooster Teeth Productions! The Austin and LA-based production company’s come a long way from its founder Burnie Burns creating voice-over-enhanced gameplay videos for Halo: Combat Evolved. Its first-person-shooter parody web series Red Vs. Blue, is still going strong after twelve seasons. And RTX, its gaming and internet culture convention, is still being held annually in Austin. So it’s more than fitting that the city’s SXSW served as the venue today for the trailer debut for Rooster Teeth’s first feature film, the sci-fi comedy Lazer Team. You can check out the trailer — in all its lowbrow nuttiness — for yourself below.

Directed by Matt Hullum, with a screenplay by Hullum, Burns, Josh Flanagan, and Chris Demarais, Lazer Team stars Burns, Gavin Free, Michael Jones, Colton Dunn, Allie Deberry, and Alan Ritchson, and explores what happens when four reluctant heroes (well, okay, imbeciles) are tasked with saving our world from an alien race that’s out to destroy it. Here’s the official synopsis…

LAZER TEAM begins decades ago when the Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence project received a onetime signal from outer space, which was never decoded. Or so we were told. Unbeknownst to the general public, the secretly translated signal said two things: One, we are not alone, and two, the galaxy is a dangerous place. Working in total secrecy, the US government has been training a single Champion of Earth – a warrior of incredible skill to don a suit of unimaginable power designed by new alien allies in preparation for Earth’s battle for survival against an evil race of aliens. Unfortunately, the suit never made it all the way to its intended destination. Instead of a lone savior, four hapless idiots find the suit and are thrust into the role of heroes as the titular Lazer Team.

    I feel like this is based off of a comic I once read. I can’t remember the title. It was based in Philly and basically a few low-level crooks found and split up the components of a similar powered armor. I’d love to read it again but I haven’t been able to remember the title.
    Somebody tweet me @hexomatt if you know it?
