» How I Met Your Mother » scene thief Barney Stinson is guaranteed to think this trailer is «legendary!» After all, Neil Patrick Harris ‘ much-cited star role is a laser tag player who is as passionate as he is ambitious. So who would appreciate a film in which an epic game of laser tag can be used to stop an alien invasion if not him?
Well, in the case of Barney Stinson, of course, there’s a risk that he’ll keep his fingers crossed for the aliens. After all, he’s a self-confessed admirer of Johnny Lawrence, Hans Gruber and the nasty teacher Vernon, the villains from The Karate Kid , Die Hard and Breakfast Club . But that doesn’t have to stop you from looking forward to sci-fi action comedy Blasted , coming to Netflix this summer .

The Norwegian production also advertises with a motto that should appeal to both Barney Stinson and the wolf pack from The Hangover , whose outlandish bachelor parties are easily outdone in terms of craziness in Blasted: Bros before UFOs ! But there is more to the film than this cheeky saying suggests:
Lasers, party, aliens, friends
For a long time Sebastian ( Axel Bøyum ) and Mikkel ( Fredrik Skogsrud ) were inseparable. But then Sebastian became a diligent career person who has no scruples about planning his bachelor party to use a business partner for his professional purposes. Mikkel, on the other hand, is totally hooked on his childhood obsession with laser tag. Now they plan to pull themselves together on the last night of partying before Sebastian’s big day — when an alien invasion ensures there’s a lot more at stake than a male friendship…
Producer Are Heidenstrom calls Blasted Norway’s first sci-fi comedy , which is an extraordinary circumstance. After all, the film’s setting, the Norwegian valley of Hessdalen, is home to an inexplicable light phenomenon. The «Hessdalen Lights» have kept research troops busy for more than 40 years and continuously fueled wild UFO conspiracy theories. Incidentally, “Blasted” is directed by Martin Sofiedal , director of the unofficial “ Uncharted ” short film “Uncharted: Ambushed”, which has become legendary among fans.
Blasted will be available on Netflix June 28, 2022.
