Moviegoers are in for a hilariously debauched and satirical affair at the cinemas like they’ve never seen before. Nerdland, debuting in movie theaters nationwide on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 8:00 PM EST, follows two unknown showbiz buddies John (Paul Rudd) and Elliot (Patton Oswalt) who are determined to go from Hollywood nobodies to viral somebodies.
From writer Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en, 8mm, Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow), Samuel Goldwyn Films and Fathom Events present director Chris Prynoski (Metalocalypse, Superjail!, Venture Bros.) and Titmouse Animation Studios, Nerdland — Nerdland is an adult-themed cartoon comedy about celebrity and excess that “revels in the foulness of 21st-century pop culture,” in the words of Variety. The film also features an army of cameos, including Hannibal Buress, Laraine Newman, Reid Scott, Mike Judge, Kate Micucci, Riki Lindhome, Paul Scheer and Molly Shannon.
“I’m stoked that we are doing a Fathom event for the theatrical release of Nerdland. Their audiences come for something you can’t get just any night at any cinema. They come for that extra special experience of like-minded people all together in one spot for an exclusive night of film, special features and fun that doesn’t exist at home on your couch or anywhere else!” Chris Prynoski, director and founder of Titmouse Animation Studios said.
“We’re excited to partner with Samuel Goldwyn Films for the first time to bring Nerdland to big screens for its nationwide debut,” Fathom Events CEO John Rubey said. “This wild animated adventure is a must-see event for mature audiences looking for some not-so-mature fun.”
Peter Goldwyn, President of Samuel Goldwyn Films said, “There has never been a film like Nerdland. We can’t wait for everyone to join us for the fun in December. We are so excited that the team at Fathom Events has a great sense of humor, and think that their audience will love this film.”
In addition to the big-screen premiere of Nerdland, the one-night cinema event also includes a cast discussion, recorded live at Beyond Fest in Hollywood featuring stand-up comedian and moderator Blaine Capatch, the movie’s stars Patton Oswalt, Kate Micucci, John Ennis and Brendon Small, as well as director Chris Prynoski and writer/producer Andrew Kevin Walker. Attendees will also get to view an exclusive short film from Titmouse Animation Studios.
