Watch Two Frustrated Nerds Make a Plan in New Trailer for Titmouse’s ‘Nerdland’

Raunchy 2D-animated satire directed by Chris Prynoski and featuring the voices of Paul Rudd and Patton Oswalt set for one-night theatrical event on Tuesday, December 6.

Ahead of its one-night cinema event on December 6, Samuel Goldwyn Films has dropped a new trailer for the first feature film from Titmouse, Chris Prynoski’s Nerdland.

The 2D-animated Nerdland is the

A wild tale of two slacker best friends, the 2D-animated Nerdland features aspiring actor John (voiced by Paul Rudd) and wannabe screenwriter Elliot (Patton Oswalt), both of whom have seen their dreams of super-stardom fizzle. With their 30th birthdays looming and desperation growing, they decide that in this 24/7, celebrity-obsessed world of over-shared navel-gazing, there are more ways to get famous than ever before -- so why not become famous by the end of the day, at any cost?

With only the grudging support of a wacky collectible store owner (Hannibal Buress) and their one-sided love for a pair of equally fame hungry women (Riki Lindhome & Kate Micucci) to keep them going, John and Elliot troll Los Angeles on an attention grabbing journey of increasingly reckless publicity stunts and failed heroics. While navigating their hyper-stimulating landscape of consumerism gone wild, our disheartened duo inadvertently become key witnesses in a high profile crime that sets the news cycle on fire. The resulting attention (from both the public and their dream girls) may just be John and Elliot’s ticket to fame, making them household names... but only if they can survive the infamy and worldwide shame.

Check out the new trailer in the player below:

Directed by Chris Prynoski, Nerdland is written by Andrew Kevin Walker, produced by Gavin Polone and Andrew Kevin Walker, executive produced by Kathy Landsberg, Chris Prynoski, and Shannon Barrett Prynoski, co-produced by Ben Kalina, with production design by Antonio Canobbio, and music by Night Club.
