Who are you going to call when aliens challenge Earth to a game of death? Not Lazer Team. Unfortunately, the U.S. Military doesn't have a choice in the aptly titled Lazer Team, which is directed by Matt Hullum, the CEO of the Austin-based Rooster Teeth (the online series Red vs. Blue). The soldier trained from birth as Earth's mightiest warrior is pushed to the sidelines when an alien-manufactured suit of armor ends up in the hands of four nitwits with no reason to represent Earth. Each member of the so-called Lazer Team possesses a piece of the armor that supposedly could tip the balance in their favor when they are called upon to fight a hostile alien challenger, with Earth as the prize. Gavin Free, Michael Jones, Colton Dunn and Rooster Teeth founder, COO and screenwriter Burnie Burns play the members of Lazer Team. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire's Alan Ritchson plays the supersoldier who refuses to believe Lazer Team can save the world. Lazer Team received its world premiere during last year’s Fantastic Fest, There will be special Tugg screenings of Lazer Team on Jan. 27 before it opens Jan. 29 in theaters. It also will be available for viewing on YouTube Red in February.
