You Probably Missed Nerdland. It’s Coming To Home Release.


Nerdland screened at a couple of film festivals in the U.S. and Canada but not really anywhere else. Fear not! It’s coming out on digital and DVD releases.

‘Nerdland’ seems to have been in the works in varying formats from a live action movie to an animated series for some time. Finally finding its calling as an animated film ‘Nerdland’ debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year.

With no distribution of note in cinemas to the best of my knowledge the film appears to have passed by much of its target audience until now. The film will receive a digital release on January 6th with a DVD hitting stores on February 7th.

With the home release being distributed by Sony Pictures and with Paul Rudd and Patton Oswalt providing voices for the lead characters (Elliot and John) it begs the question – how this film slipped through mostly unrecognised?

Director Chris Prynoski has created an explicit animated movie that not only features Rudd and Oswalt, but also attracts the talents of ‘Beavis and Butthead’ creator Mike Judge.

Nerdland Synopsis | Nerdland is the story of two best friends, aspiring screenwriter Elliot and aspiring actor John, whose dreams of super-stardom have fizzled. With their 30th birthdays looming and their desperation growing, John and Elliot decide that in this 24/7, celebrity-obsessed world of over-shared navel-gazing, there are more ways to become famous – or infamous – than ever before. So why not become famous today?
Nerdland is that day. Making up for what they lack in brains and talent with abundant, witless enthusiasm, John and Elliot troll Los Angeles on a fame-grab journey, encountering and abusing friends both new and old. Navigating their hyper-stimulating landscape of consumerism gone wild, our two consumers want desperately to be consumed — and they will have their fame, no matter what the cost.
