FInally, Outlander arrives

Well, Outlander finally arrives -- in the US anyway. After speculation that a cinema release would not be forthcoming, Quiet Earth reveals that the alien monster vs vikings creature feature opens in select theatres in the US on 23 January. You can find a list of cities in which it will be showing here.

What's more, below is the final poster:

This film has been long in coming and, despite massive enthusiasm from genre fans and many positive reviews, it appears the Weinstein Company still isn't granting it a big release. I'm sure we here in the Land of Oz will have to wait for the DVD.

Outlander (US-2008; dir. Howard McCain)
During the reign of the Vikings, Kainan (Caviezel), a man from a far-off world, crash lands on Earth, bringing with him an alien predator known as the Moorwen. Though both man and monster are seeking revenge for violence committed against them, Kainan leads the alliance to kill the Moorwen by fusing his advanced technology with the Viking's Iron Age weaponry.
The film stars James Caviezel, Ron Perlman, John Hurt, Sophia Myles, and Jack Huston, if you were wondering. Fairly impressive cast, actually.
