Extraterrestrial (Spanish: Extraterrestre) is a 2011 Spanish science-fiction romantic comedy.[1] Directed by Nacho Vigalondo (in his second feature), it stars Michelle Jenner, Julian Villagran and Carlos Areces.

It was filmed in Cantabria, in northern Spain and premiered in Spain on March 23, 2012. The film has shown worldwide: in the International Film Festival in Toronto, the International Film Festival of San Sebastian, the Sitges Film Festival in Sitges, Spain, and the Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas.


Julio (Julian Villagran) wakes up one morning in a perfect apartment, next to a stunning girl, with a terrible hangover unable to remember what happened the night before. Instantly he falls for her, Julia (Michelle Jenner). All she wants is him to go, but the alien invasion that has just begun gives him an excuse to stay. Julia's husband appears and the alien threat grows, but for Julio, one thing is clear: Just as the aliens have traveled across the universe to destroy mankind, he is here to stay.
