The Texas-based comedy team Rooster Teeth is known for their Red vs. Blue web-series on Machinima, and now they have put together a feature film, Lazer Team, which was produced from a $2.48M Indiegogo campaign.
The film is directed by Matt Hullum and stars Alan Ritchson, Colton Dunn, Gavin Free, Michael Jones, Burnie Burns and Alexandria Deberry. It was written by Hullum, Burns, Josh Flanagan, and Chris Demarais.

The film 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.
