UFO documentary The Phenomenon, which takes an expansive look across 70 years’ worth of history behind proving the existence of UFOs, right up to the latest discoveries, has a new trailer and release date.
The feature from director James Fox was originally slated for a wide North American theatrical release via 1091 Pictures this fall, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic will now premiere worldwide on all digital platforms on Oct. 6.
Co-written by Fox and Marc Barasch, The Phenomenon features never-before-seen archival footage and interviews with key eyewitnesses, experts and officials, including former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, President Clinton’s White House chief of staff John Podesta, former Deputy Undersecretary for Defense Intelligence Christopher Mellon, and former U.S. Energy Secretary and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, as well as Jacques Vallee, who served as a scientific consultant on Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
E.T. actor Peter Coyotes narrates the film, which was produced by Fox and Dan Farah (Ready Player One), among others.
“The Phenomenon is meritorious. It makes the incredible credible,” said Reid, while former Senior CIA Officer and member of the Senior Intelligence Service, Jim Semivan, described it as, “The most important documentary of the year and the most accurate examination of the world’s greatest mystery.”
Vallee said: “Seventy years of secrecy has led to this. The most credible documentary ever made about UFOs.”
Chris Mellon, former United States Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence at the U.S. Department of Defense, said: “I can’t think of a better way for people to begin educating themselves on this long-neglected issue than watching The Phenomenon. The film provides a badly needed remedy for the unwarranted stigma that for too long has prevented government and academia from taking this important topic seriously.”
