‘Lips On Mars dotmusic

The Flaming Lips’ long-awaited feature film, ‘Christmas On Mars’, will be released before the end of the year, dotmusic can confirm. The movie, written and directed by frontman Wayne Coyne, tells the story of Major Syrtis and his experiences of spending the festive season on a newly colonised Mars. Coyne described the movie as: “Maybe ‘Eraserhead’ or ‘Dead Man’ crossed with some kind of fantasy and space aspects, like ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and maybe ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’, except done without real actors or money, and set at Christmas-time.”
