Extraterrestrial (Spanish: Extraterrestre) is a 2011 Spanish science-fiction romantic comedy[1] directed by Nacho Vigalondo (in his second feature), and starring Michelle Jenner, Julián Villagrán and Carlos Areces. It was filmed in Cantabria in northern Spain and premiered in Spain on March 23, 2012. The film was shown worldwide: at the Toronto International Film Festival, the International Film Festival of San Sebastián, the Sitges Film Festival in Sitges, Spain, and the Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas.


Julio (Julián Villagrán) wakes up one morning in an apartment, unable to remember what happened the night before. He barely has a chance to speak to the girl he spent the previous evening with, Julia (Michelle Jenner), when it becomes clear there is an alien spacecraft hanging over the city.

Before long they discover that the next-door neighbor Ángel (Carlos Areces) and Julia's boyfriend Carlos (Raúl Cimas) are both alive.
