Timecrimes (Los Cronocrímenes for the etc etc) was a cracking time-travel-mystery-thriller carnival of bonkers that proved what could be done with a great idea but not much money, so when Vigalondo announced his next film would be about an alien invasion, literally THE ENTIRE WORLD waited with bated breath to see what would happen.
And what's happened so far is two posters which appear to be marketing two completely different films. The found-footage / fake documentary version:
...and the sci-fi rom-com version:
I'm not sure which of those two versions I'm more excited about, although the Space Invaders poster is a genius visual summation of the synopsis - boy meets girl, falls in love, aliens invade.
Here are Vigalondo's own thoughts on the film, as detailed in his blog and translated by one of those reliable internet translatobots:
Meanwhile, here's Vigalondo's 2003 short 7.35 In The Morning (it doesn't matter what its Spanish title is, stop going on about it), which is suitably daft and is as good a way as any to spend eight minutes of your life.
