RLJE Films has revealed the Color Out of Space trailer, which gives you a first look at the anticipated January 24, 2020 release. Starring Nicolas Cage, the film is directed by Richard Stanley — his first feature in over 20 years. Based on the novella by H.P. Lovecraft, Color Out of Space reunites Cage with SpectreVision, the company behind the critically-acclaimed and commercially-successful 2018 film Mandy.
The film, written by Richard Stanley and Scarlett Aramis, also stars Joely Richardson, Madeleine Arthur, Brendan Meyer, Julian Hilliard, Elliot Knight, Josh C. Waller, Q’orianka Kilcher, and Tommy Chong.
Color Out of Space is a story of cosmic terror about The Gardners, a family who moves to a remote farmstead in rural New England to escape the hustle of the 21st century. They are busy adapting to their new life when a meteorite crashes into their front yard. The mysterious aerolite seems to melt into the earth, infecting both the land and the properties of space-time with a strange, otherworldly color. To their horror, the Gardner family discover that this alien force is gradually mutating every life form that it touches… including them.
Color Out of Space is produced by SpectreVision’s Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller, Lisa Whalen and Elijah Wood. Timur Bekbosunov, Johnny Chang, Emma Lee and Peter Wong executive produce for ACE Pictures. Stacy Jorgensen executive produces for SpectreVision.
South African filmmaker Richard Stanley started his career with back-to-back cult classics, Hardware and Dust Devil, before being released from the notoriously controversial 1996 production of The Island of Dr. Moreau with Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer, an event chronicled in the 2014 documentary Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau. In the years since, Stanley has become a major cult figure whose return to feature filmmaking has been anticipated by legions of fans.
