Richard Stanley’s Nicolas Cage-led H.P. Lovecraft adaptation, Color Out of Space, is set to bring its colorful nightmare to theaters early next year on January 24th, 2020. The premiere date was revealed earlier today by RLJE Films, with the official trailer for the undoubtedly trippy feature in tow. Give it a watch above and read on for more details on the upcoming movie.

Color Out of Space comes from the production team behind last year’s Mandy. After a meteorite lands in the front yard of their farmstead, Nathan Gardner and his family find themselves battling a mutant extraterrestrial organism as it infects their minds and bodies, transforming their quiet rural life into a technicolor nightmare.

The director's chair is filled by cult-cinema legend Richard Stanley, best-known for his films Hardware and Dust Devil, along with his extremely short time as the director of the 1996 "disasterpiece" The Island of Dr. Moreau, which starred Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer. He co-wrote the screenplay for this project with Scarlett Amaris.

Starring is Nicolas Cage (Mandy, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), Joely Richardson (Event Horizon), Madeleine Arthur (Snowpiercer), Brendan Meyer (The OA), Julian Hilliard (The Haunting of Hill House), Elliot Knight (How to Get Away with Murder), Q’orianka Kilcher (Yellowstone, The New World), and Tommy Chong (Cheech & Chong).

The film is set to hit theaters on January 24th, 2020. Be sure to follow Dead Entertainment for the latest news, updates, and information ahead.
