‘Earthbound’ Lands In Irish Cinemas In March
28 Jan 2013 : By Eva Hall
Rafe Spall & Jenn Murray in 'Earthbound'
Irish sci-fi film ‘Earthbound’ will be released in Irish cinemas on March 15, it has been announced.

The comedy, starring actor of-the-moment Rafe Spall, who featured in last year’s ‘Prometheus’ and will be seen next in upcoming British comedy ‘I Give It a Year’, was shot in Dublin last year.

Spall plays Joe Norman, an alien from the planet Zalaxon, who is tasked with finding a suitable mate so he can finally settle down. The only thing standing in his way is a group of aliens who he believes are hunting him down.

Spall is joined by an all-star cast, including David Morrissey, who plays The Governor in ‘The Walking Dead; Jenn Murray, star of ‘Dorothy Mills’; Aoife Duffin from ‘Moone Boy’; Stephen Hogan (Saving the Titanic) and Ned Dennehy (Titanic: Blood an Steel).

The film was written and directed by Alan Brennan, and co-produced by Ireland’s Ripple World Pictures and Paper Dreams. Jacqueline Kerrin, Dominic Wright and Heidi Madsen all produced.

IFTA-nominated DoP PJ Dillon was the DoP on set, while David Wilson was production designer, Louise Stanton Costume Designer, Louise Kiely the casting director and Barry Moen editor. Post-production was at EGG Post Production. The composer was Liam Bates.

‘Earthbound’, already named Best First Irish Feature at the 2012 Galway Film Fleadh, will have its Irish premiere at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival on Wednesday February 20. This will be followed by a theatrical release in Ireland on March 15.

Ripple World Distribution and Paper Dreams are distributing.

The film received funding from the IFB and the European Commission’s MEDIA scheme.
