Flaming Lips complete filming "Christmas on Mars"

The Flaming Lips have completed shooting on their feature film "Christmas on Mars," which has been in the works for several years.

From here:

frontman Wayne Coyne tells Billboard.com. "Now I just have to remember what it is that we were trying to say [laughs]."

"I think it's going to be a great, unique side road to what we've been all along," he continues. "The Flaming Lips' audience has pushed us that way. With a lot of rock bands, maybe the audience would say, 'What are you guys doing?' But with us, it almost feels like, 'Go! Do it! See what happens!' People don't realize how powerful that is, to have people that believe in you and encourage you. The Flaming Lips are living proof that if you believe in people enough, they can do something. This movie is that, in a way."
