Jake Van Wagoner, Film Director, stopped by to tell us all about his Sundance experience, and the release of film, “Aliens Abducted My Parents and Now I feel Kinda Left Out.” Fresh off premiering this film at Sundance earlier this year, and receiving the “Best of Fest” award, the film opens in theaters tomorrow!
So what’s this film with about? Itsy Levan is devastated by her parent’s decision to leave the city and buy a fixer-upper in the middle of nowhere. Her life seems over until she meets her space-obsessed neighbor Calvin Kipler. Calvin has spent most of his life awaiting the next arrival of Jesper’s Comet, partly because of his obsession with Astronomy, but mostly because the last time it came, aliens abducted his parents! This year he is going to be ready for its return so he can finally get them back. Itsy sees this as a chance to help her get into a NYC journalism program and decides to help him, however crazy his plan seems. They end up discovering much more than what is on the other end of the comet’s tail.
We can’t wait to catch it in the theater! Check megaplextheatres.com for showtimes
