Phoenix Forgotten Trailer Release

Trailer for “Phoenix Forgotten” Offers Take on Famous UFO Sighting

Cinelou Films’ new sci-fi film Phoenix Forgotten works to tell a fictitious story revolving around the real-life UFO sighting nicknamed the “Phoenix Lights” that appeared over Arizona on March 13, 1997.

The film centers around three teenagers as they take off into the desert to investigate the unusual sighting and uncover some other spooky alien horrors (it always sounds cool until you are face to face with the unknown).  The film is presented in the found footage format, attempting to capitalize on the budget-friendly genre.  Think The Blair Witch Project with aliens and an actual “based on a true story” tagline that offers slight (and I do mean slight) merit.

The true story in question took place in 1997 when literally hundreds of people witnessed a series of lights that are thought to be a spacecraft that was hovering over Phoenix.  Though the events have never been fully explained, this film opts to take full advantage, billing itself as “recently found footage” and giving fans a theory to run with.

Phoenix Forgotten hits theaters on April 21.  Enjoy the trailer.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
