    The directorial debut of Flaming Lips front man Wayne Coyne, Christmas on Mars, is as weird as you'd expect (and that's a good thing). Following the critical acclaim garnered upon its initial screening, Warner Bros. Records and Film company subsidiary Cinema Purgatorio will be showing the film in selected venues across the country. The film will also be available on iTunes on its November 11th national release date.

    Christmas on Mars is about a team of astronauts (consisting of fellow band members Steven Drozd and Michael Ivins) that, surprisingly enough, spend Christmas on Mars. The result is a myriad of trippy scenarios that had The New York Times hailing it as "destined for cult status" and includes "black and white images with psychedelic bursts; dashes of David Lynch, the '70s midnight movie Dark Star and 2001; an echo of The Wizard of Oz; and in a riff on maternity, maybe an iota of The Matrix."

    By all things Yoshimi, the film promises to be quite a spectacle. - chris gayomali
