Ridley Scott’s Phoenix Forgotten Gets Theatrical Date and Trailer

Cinelou Films will release found-footage shocker Phoenix Forgotten in theaters nationwide on April 21st

Sir Ridley Scott ain’t going gently into his senior years. On top of setting the sci-fi/horror fandom afire this year with his highly-anticipated Alien: Covenant, Scott is one of the producers of buzzed found-footage shocker Phoenix Forgotten.

The film is based on the shocking, true events of March 13, 1997, when several mysterious lights appeared over Phoenix, Arizona. This unprecedented and inexplicable phenomenon became known as “The Phoenix Lights,” and remains the most famous and widely-viewed UFO sighting in history.

Phoenix Forgotten tells the story of three teens who went into the desert shortly after the incident, hoping to document the strange events occurring in their town. They disappeared that night, and were never seen again. Now, on the twentieth anniversary of their disappearance, unseen footage has finally been discovered, chronicling the final hours of their fateful expedition. For the first time ever, the truth will be revealed…

Directed by Justin Barber (Beginners) and co-written by Barber and T.S. Nowlin (The Maze Runner movies, Pacific Rim: Uprising) Phoenix Forgotten stars Florence Hartigan, Chelsea Lopez, Justin Matthews and Luke Spencer Roberts. It will open in theaters on April 21 via Cinelou Films. Check out the trailer below.
