MANKIND’S DARKEST HOUR NEEDS OUR BRIGHTEST TEAM

When four small-town losers stumble across an alien crash site containing an incredible battle suit, they soon find themselves responsible for the fate of the entire planet. With this new alien equipment genetically bound to them, and the government hot on their heels, the foursome have no choice but to work together as one to save humanity. All they have to do is learn to use a strange alien device meant for only one-person, train for a battle against an omnipotent enemy, and not kill each other in the process. They may not be strong, smart, or talented... but they’re Lazer Team. Based on a true event, Lazer Team is directed by Matt Hullum and stars Burnie Burns, Gavin Free, Michael Jones, Allie DeBerry, Colton Dunn and features Alan Ritchson.

Lazer Team is The first feature film from pioneering studio Rooster Teeth, the creators of the longest-running web series in history, Red vs Blue. In 2014 Lazer Team smashed crowdfunding records when the film raised more than $2.6 million on IndieGoGo.
