AVGN Movie Trailer – West Coast date added!

James / October 16th, 2012

November 5th, you can get a sneak peak at the AVGN Movie Trailer in Hollywood as as part of the GameTrailers film festival. It’s an 18+ event, and you need to RSVP. See here, for more details.

For those on the East Coast, there’s the Nov 9th screening at the Colonial Theater in Phoenixville, PA. I will be there doing a Q&A. See here, for more details about that one.

The online debut will follow shortly afterwards.

    It’s awesome to see that it’s starting to see the light of day! I don’t expect it to be playing in any theaters in Canada, so I was wondering:
    Maybe you can contact Netflix and have them stream your movie? Since we all got to know AVGN through the internet, maybe we can all enjoy your movie using the Internet as well!

    Whatever happens, I will still buy your DVD (if I get to watch it or not beforehand). Keep it up, James! We always knew you’d make it!

    The Internet will have it one way or another, so I might as well have it legal. Wait a second, does this mean the movie is done with the editing part? Or as a whole?

    Thanks very much! When the movie is done eventually, we hope to bring it to as many cities as possible. Toronoto comes to mind, since I was there this past summer for a convention.

    These events we’re doing for the trailer are sort of a test, to get some kind of idea of how it’ll go when we’re trying to show the actual movie. Booking my own live events is a new experience for me. I’ll be learning as I go.

    Since it’ll be hard to bring it everywhere in the world, Netflix or something like that may be a good way to go. It’s cutting edge and everybody’s using the internet today. Of course, we plan on a DVD/ Blu-ray as well, but we’ll look into online options too.

    The movie isn’t even done shooting. After we finished the California locations, it took a long time for me to settle back into my home and now it feels like Pre-Production all over again, gearing up for the last scenes. There’s some editing going on as we speak, so it’s all over the place. It’ll come together in the end. And yes, you’re right about the internet.

    Is there any way to schedule a special screening of the movie when it comes out?

    I live in Salt Lake City and we have an awesome theater that is called Brewvies. The gimmick is movies food and best of all beer. I could be happy to coordinate if this is a possibility.

    Dear James,

    Seeing as how this movie is gonna be played in theaters in Toronto do you think you can play at Selkirk Manitoba as well? Also I heard there was a “Audio”(Like a Music Playlist) section of this site but I can’t seem to find it did you guys get rid of it? Also I hope to see this movie in Selkirk as you have fans there as well LOOKING FORWARD TO SEE IT =3

    I’m really hoping for a screening in Toronto. James had a pretty big surprise with his fan base at Con Bravo. So hopefully that is a good enough indication, We love AVGN up here and I of course help spread the word of Cinemassacre and The AVGN.too 🙂

  • October 16, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    I look forward to the trailers and of course the movie! Keep grinding it out James!

    Wait, so is this event completely free? As in, as long as you RSVP and show up on time, you can enter and view the trailer without paying for anything?

    I am extremely annoyed by this whole “show the trailer only to a select few” thing. Just release a “teaser” which can be very short, but do it openly. It will make people talk and long for the full thing. Right now, I have NO IDEA what it’s gonna be like. It makes me unable to look forward to it.

    Exciting stuff!!!

    I hate living in the UK sometimes, i’d love to come see your film and see yourself aswell! Cant wait to see the trailer, and can’t wait to make your movie the first one i’ve actually been excited enough to buy in the past 5 years!

    Keep up the good work James!

    Man, I wish I lived somewhere along one of the coasts of the US…. but I live in the Netherlands. We have to Eureally patient (I know, boos on the bad pun) but with all the anticipation building, it’s gonna be a hell of a blast!!! Can’t wait for the trailer and all the best with the fiming, editing and post-production!

    Best of luck from Holland!

    Awesome news!! I don’t know if a US release includes Puerto Rico, but I’ll buy the BluRay when it comes out. I did my own AVGN tribute on youTube 2 months ago (you can look it up in youTube by searching retromusicologo avgn tribute) simply because I was hyped about this movie. Hope to see more AVGN episodes and keep ’em coming!! There’s still more and more games to review.

    Do you have any plans for special features such as a gag reel..a behind the scenes look.. any of that shit? That could be neat.

    I’ll be there in PA!

    Why don’t you do a screening at my house.

    Can’t wait to see the trailer!

    I know I’m not alone when I say I’d love to see the AVGN movie in cinemas here in the UK. There are some absolutely fantastic independent cinemas here in London that are creatively-minded and I’m sure many of them would be amenable to a one-off screening or short run of the AVGN movie. I would really recommend you research The Prince Charles Cinema in particular; it is unique and has a real thing for cheese and horror (they’re currently screening Killer Clowns from Outer Space among a plethora of other things for Halloween!). It does private hire for screenings, and they relish a bit of novelty. They’re also in Leicester Square, the centre of London!

    Just a thought, as I think they’d really love the whole AVGN movie concept.

    Kind regards,

    Pissed I can’t make that seeing as I live in South Carolina. Can’t wait for somebody there to record it and post it on YouTube. 😛

    Thnking about the huge and constantly growing fan base your AVGN character has made, you should probably be expecting some more notoriety after this movie. Prepare! Well, at least I’m being supportive. I’m very hyped about this movie and please don’t hold back on your talent and resources; I bet things are going to turn into pure awesome.

    Good luck! I’ll probably have to wait for it to come out on dvd next year since I live in Bumble-#$%^ Missouri, but I’ll be waiting. I was tempted to volunteer to help edit, but I don’t really have much spare time, or harddrive space to edit video.
