AVGN Movie Trailer – Live event

James / September 28th, 2012

The Trailer for the AVGN Movie is coming along pretty good and will be ready by November. Before it hits the internet, I wanted to give fans a special chance to get a sneak peek on the big screen before it goes online. For the occasion, we’ve rented the Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. That’s right, the same theater where The Blob was filmed!

I’ll be there to host the screening. I’ll show two past AVGN episodes, the Movie Trailer, some behind-the-scenes images and then open up a Q&A session. After that, I’ll be available to sign autographs or shake some hands. I’ll try my best to get to as many people as possible. (I’ll also be doing a signing at RetroCon on November 11.)

AVGN Movie Trailer Premiere
Friday, November 9, 2012
The Colonial Theatre
227 Bridge Street
Phoenixville, PA 19460
Tickets $15
Tickets can be purchased online here. You must have a ticket to enter.  Tickets are limited and are general admission – meaning seats are first come first serve. Parking is not available at the Colonial Theater.
This is an “R” rated event (for language), so those under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult.


We are trying to add a west coast date as well. Stay tuned. If you can’t make it, don’t worry, it will go online in November, some time after the event. It won’t be like the new Godzilla teaser where it screens at Comic Con, then disappears into oblivion.

Also, this does not mean the movie is close to being done. There’s still a lot left to film. It’s a long tedious process. I wanted to focus on getting the trailer out first, because I think it’s about time to show something. Then I go back to working hardcore on the actual film.

    I don’t live in America so don’t forget your fans from all over the world and make sure it comes online soon after the event 😛

    Wow, I just sprouted a serious wood and cracked one major nut! Just purchased two tickets for me and the wife, can’t wait to be there.
    I’m wondering will Mike, or any other cast members be present for this event too?

    Dang I wish I lived in Pennsylvania!

  • September 28, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    Sounds like a great event I can never be at, unfortunately. I hope it goes well and you end up selling a lot of tickets for the event. Can’t wait until November when you premier the trailer online. : )

    Hmmm.Why do I live in Limburg …..?

    Ok , I ‘m going to Oktoberfest etc. So it isn’t that bad ( 😀 ), but I’m jealous of all the things that you can do in the USA like going to a meeting of James Rolfe .:(

    I glanced at the entry and saw Phoenix and automatically assumed Phoenix, Arizona. Lousy Phoenixville. Lol. Bring one down to Arizona. We need love too.

  • diegowar

    September 29, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    As much as I’d love to see anything from the movie, I don’t like watching trailers of movies I’m sure I’m going to see ^^. Got to be patient, but I always enjoy more something I discover for the first time 🙂

  • Madrid1214

    September 29, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    It’ll be kinda cool if you film the audition as well while showing the trailer. See their reaction

  • diegowar

    September 29, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    (with the exception of a few movies that can stay as good or even get better with repeated viewings, but I’m sure a movie can’t be better because I’ve watched a trailer ^^)

    Can you come to Canada(ON)? It can be after Nov 11 if you want. Plus, you can sight see various locations in Toronto (Toronto being a good movie set location). If money is a issue that’s okay, but just letting you know that you have a Canadian audience too!

    Two tix bought for me and the wife, will get there early enough to be in front row, looking forward to it!

    Sounds awesome! I’d be able to make it if it was later in the night. Drive to Phoenixville is 40 mins and I’d be getting out of work at 6.

    Still, great to hear there will be a live event, and should the movie premiere near or around Philly (or even back in Phoenixville) I’ll be sure to attend!

  • RX_79

    I dont know if this has been asked before, but is there going to be a movie poster for your movie? If the answer is yes where can i get one?

  • October 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Please don’t remind me of the Godzilla teaser…..it’s too painful.

    Wish I could make it man, Indiana doesn’t get any attention!

    Didn’t realize there was so much left to film still! Good luck with everything!

  • ditka187

    October 1, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    I WILL BE THERE!!! I can’t wait to meet you and shake your hand. You are the man!!!!!

    Sir nerd dude,

    I’m sure you cannot afford to get a theatrical release out here in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.

    But, if humanly possible, you should. I am sure you would get a sell out here. We are a small Canadian city, but we have a huge geek population.

    I’m not saying personal appearance (hell, I wouldn’t wish that upon you during the winter months here), but a release would be awesome. Even one of our smaller theatres that don’t feel the need to have big, blockbuster crap despite the fact that they only have one or two screens. I’m not saying that you’d make alot in ticket sales, but dvd sales later… Just give us a chance.

    Bah, it’s a pipe dream anyway. Anyway, Mr. Rolfe, James… I support you all the way, and I WILL be purchasing a copy of the film…hell, I might rent out a theatre and screen it for my friends. ($200 or so for a feature length flick ain’t bad, get five guys to go in with me and we get to see the Nerd at the theatre.)

    Anyway, all the best to who is becoming my modern day hero (can’t wait till you are the next Whedon)

  • Ben_from_G-town

    Sounds great, James! Unfortunately, that’s too far away for me to attend, but I’m sure it will be a special treat for those that can. I definitely look forward to the premiere of the trailer whenever you put it online, though.

    October 8, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    HELP! When I was ordering the tickets online on the colonial theatre, it was for some reason saying my credit card was invalid. Anybody else have this problem? Do I have to buy it online?

    If you get a chance, please be sure to walk around the Retrocon vendor area, James. I’m a longtime fan and an 80’s toy dealer who’ll be peddling my wares at the show. Would love to meet you!

  • Koobion

    October 11, 2012 at 3:48 am

    I’ll be there, and at Retrocon! We can’t wait to meet you James.
