Sci-Fi Drama ALIENATED Opens In Hollywood Today

After successful theatrical runs in New York City and Boston last month, "ALIENATED," the sci fi drama written and directed by Brian Ackley, opens April 16th for a week at the ACME Theater in Hollywood.

"Alienated" tells the story of a married couple that is forced to confront their fatal relationship issues while on the brink of a possible alien abduction. The film stars veteran actors George Katt and Jen Burry, and features the last onscreen performance by prolific character actor and comedian Taylor Negron, who unfortunately passed early this year to cancer. He was 57 years old. (source 1, source 2)

Alienated, after winning 13 film festival awards including 3 for Best Feature, a Best Director Award for writer/director Brian Ackley and multiple Best Actor awards, was acquired for distribution by Gravitas Ventures and now available on Cable VOD/VOD. (Source)

Independent films, which often feature more challenging, complex characters, have always been restrained to the same expectations that larger-than-life Hollywood tent-poles have. Superhero franchises like Batman vs Superman have budgets so massive, that featuring audience-friendly, often nearly perfect characters is mandatory. The characters in Alienated naturally irritated Hollywood trades like Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, who were apparently made uncomfortable by being confronted with characters they found "unlikable." Despite this, the film has remained on the best sellers list on iTunes for over 2 weeks. (source 1, source 2, source 3)

The film is produced by David Vaughn and his partners at One Way or Another Productions (in association with Fades 2 Black Media Group). Vaughn is a LA-based actor and producer who has produced, written, directed, and starred in several feature films and web series in the southern California and surrounding areas.
