Tom DeLonge’s dream is coming true: the blink-182 co-vocalist and guitarist has directed his first-ever film, and it’s about aliens.

Yep, Aliens Exist in the trailer for DeLonge’s sci-fi directorial debut, Monsters Of California. The movie is hitting US cinemas on Friday, 6 October – we’ll update this article when we have an Australian release date.

In the new trailer for Monsters Of California, teenager Dallas Edwards (Jack Samson) investigates a mystery surrounding his father, who turns out to have been working on UFO-related research for the government. Edwards and his friends stumble upon discoveries they likely shouldn’t and subsequently find themselves caught in the middle of dangerous intrigue.

According to a film synopsis, Monsters Of California follows Edwards and his high school friends as they “embark on a righteous and dangerous adventure to uncover a paranormal conspiracy in Southern California that brings them face-to-face with some of the government's most guarded mysteries.”

DeLonge co-wrote the screenplay with Ian Miller and Ben Kull and produced the movie’s score, which features a spooky acapella rendition of Aliens Exist in the trailer. You can check out the teaser below.

It’s unsurprising that DeLonge’s directorial debut follows this path - anyone who’s been following DeLonge’s career knows about his enthusiasm for alien research and his To The Stars Academy Of Arts & Sciences. In July, he was vindicated by the US government’s UFO hearings.

In case you missed it: former Air Force Intelligence Officer Major David Grusch testified in Congress, claiming that the US government has secretly run a “multi-decade” program that allegedly finds and captures “unidentified aerial phenomena.” 

Fellow former Air Force Intelligence Officer David Fravor then praised DeLonge and his To The Stars Academy for their work, including the footage DeLonge’s Academy filmed of UFOs.

Taking to Instagram, the musician responded to the news by sharing a graphic that read, “Tom Was Right: Aliens F**king Exist”.

In the caption, he added, “The UFO Hearings today made history. I am so proud of the three witnesses today that blew the lid off the UFO secrecy that has been intact for decades. [Ryan] Graves, Fravor and Grusch are HEROES.”
