James / June 9th, 2014
I’m very happy to give you this announcement about the upcoming release of Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie. There’s a lot of information to give, so I had to contain my excitement to get you all the clear details.
SCREENINGS ON SALE NOW, GET ALL UPDATED INFORMATION HERE
June 9, 2014 at 5:02 pm
DAAAAAAMMMMNNN! How did you get that theater? Congratulations James, Im glad your dreams are coming true.
June 9, 2014 at 5:17 pm
how do I buy tickets for the colonial showing? please tell me there will be multiple showing over multiple days?!! if you only do one showing per theatre they will all sell out and a lot of people will get fucked. Please give info on how the booking and shows actually work PLEASE!!! will mike be attending too? is there a q and a after? MORE INFO PLEASE!!!
June 9, 2014 at 5:48 pm
Agreed! I want to go to The Colonial showing.
June 12, 2014 at 1:02 am
Um… didn’t you watch the video? Tickets will be sold first on cinemassacre. And as it’s an independent film being shown in theatres on an individually-booked basis there won’t be multiple showings. Nobody’s going to get “fucked” – have some respect for the spirit of this film. If you want multiple showings, please watch Transformers 4.

my neighbor’s step-sister brought home $20864 a week ago. she has been making cash on the internet and bought a $519900 home. All she did was get lucky and apply the advice exposed on this link

June 9, 2014 at 6:18 pm
Second? Minute? Hour?
South Florida is a huge market, I think you should try to arrange an extra screening here! I’m in Fort Lauderdale, but I’d drive down to Miami or up to Boca or Palm to see it.
June 10, 2014 at 2:12 pm
I also live in South Florida and I know quite a few ppl whole enjoy the nerd so I am hoping that a live screening will be somewhere in Miami. I live in sunrise though
June 12, 2014 at 7:45 pm
I would absolutely go to this in Miami or FTL.
June 9, 2014 at 6:53 pm
June 9, 2014 at 10:28 pm
Captain A(Captain Atari) is a parody of Captain N(Captain Nintendo)
Captain A The System Warrior!
June 9, 2014 at 5:04 pm
June 9, 2014 at 5:05 pm
first page motherfucker!!!!
June 9, 2014 at 5:06 pm
Congrats James, I finally made it to the fron of these comments to tell you how much of an inspiration you are. I also made an animated feature film in my senior year of highschool(which was a friggin nightmare!) I hope your premiere goes as well as mine. P.S. Captain A The System Warrior rules, you should use him.
June 9, 2014 at 5:12 pm
Good news! 🙂 I’m from France but I’ll wait til the dvd comes out, it’s ok!
June 9, 2014 at 5:13 pm
Atlanta Welcomes your movie James. Way to go! Can’t wait to see it!
Can’t wait to order my special edition DVD on amazon, (i hope?!), get it right here in Italy and see the nerd’s big advenure with all my friends.
Good job James, and good luck with that deadline!
June 9, 2014 at 5:14 pm
I am so excited man. I hope that I can get everything thought out and stuff, so that I can travel to the U.S. and be at the big premiere. I am so grateful for everything you have done, and a premiere at the famous, historical Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre sounds like the most epic thing that could ever happen to this film! I hope that it’ll have the chance of getting a screening at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater as well. That would be be awesome!
June 9, 2014 at 5:15 pm
I am so excited, I will make sure I get tickets and attend the Chicago Premiere
June 9, 2014 at 5:16 pm
So awesome man, I’m gonna do all I can to make it to the PA screening, but will do NYC otherwise. Also, print lots of Blu rays cause I’ll be buying a couple lol. I can’t wait! This is exciting man, congrats!!
June 9, 2014 at 5:20 pm
The Year of the Nerd
June 9, 2014 at 5:24 pm
YOU HAVE CREATED A GREAT SERIES.
AND PROOVED YOUR NERDINESS BY REVIEWING SHITTY GAMES.
NOW GO AND RELEASE YOUR MOVIE !
June 9, 2014 at 5:26 pm
I can’t wait for Aug. 6. I think of four possible locations here in Chicago. Either it will be at:
1) Landmark Century Theater
2) The Music Box
3) Gene Siskel Film Center
June 9, 2014 at 5:29 pm
Congratulations! Can’t wait to watch it!
June 9, 2014 at 5:30 pm
We can’t get Rush to come to Houston but we can get the Nerd. Totally awesome! I’ll be sure to spread the word here. Congratulations are definitely in order for all the hard work! See you at the movies!
June 9, 2014 at 5:31 pm
Does anyone else have a problem playing the video? I click play but get a message “error loading stream: cannot connect to server”. No idea what the problem is.
June 9, 2014 at 5:32 pm
It’s so exciting! I hope one day you’ll come to Europe. That day will come, I know it. A huge fan from Lithuania.
June 9, 2014 at 5:42 pm
Why aren’t you bringing this movie to Canada?! I’m SURE you’d have a great turnout here!
June 9, 2014 at 5:43 pm
Hmm… I live around the Tulsa area, so should I just go ahead and go to the Dallas screening? Or should I go to the Denver screening? I’ve been to Texas countless times but have never been to Colorado. That would be one hell of an excuse to go to Colorado! James, from the bottom of my heart: congratulations!
June 9, 2014 at 5:50 pm
I live in NY, I will most definitely see that screening! (I hope) Conglaturation James, dreams do come true.
Curses for being the meat in the Washington-California sandwich! I’ll try to make it to the San Francisco premier!
June 9, 2014 at 5:51 pm
Great News! I cannot wait for the DVD release! If you ever think of screening it in Germany, I offer you to stay at my home in Berlin. And I’m dead fucking serious. I would love to see your creation on the big screen. I’m so happy for you! Let the word of the nerd be heard!
June 9, 2014 at 6:01 pm
Really wish you got one close to me…So South Florida please
June 9, 2014 at 6:03 pm
I’m willing to wait James until a DVD release 🙂 don’t bend over backwards to try and get it over here. Just make sure you hit them hard when you show it in the US, I’m pretty sure it’s going to lead you down further oppertunities.
I’m just happy it’s going so well for you guys, I’m sure us Swedes and the rest of the fans in the other parts of the world are willing to wait for a DVD release.
June 9, 2014 at 6:05 pm
I do want to know one thing though, what the initial reactions are to it when you finally show it! Love seeing people geek out over films, even more so if it’s AVGN!
James, if you can, you should do what Robert Rodriguez does and do an audio recording of the audiences’ reaction when you premiere the movie at the Egyptian Theater–and then put that on the DVD/bluray as a special feature. That would be cool.
You have fans in Finland too 🙂
June 9, 2014 at 6:06 pm
Haha if you fancy doing a screening in the UK you’re welcome to stay here too – I’m right next to the beach by the way 😉 The same theatre where they screened Return of The Jedi? That’s insane! If I had the cash I’d be there! Can’t wait for the download so I can see this. Thanks for all the years of entertainment, you deserve this 🙂
Hoping to buy the Bluray. I’m in Ontario, Canada and can’t make it to any of these.
I remember when the original Paranormal Activity came out in 2007 which was years before the worldwide release in 2009. I wanted to see it then, but wasn’t able to until the 2009 release when it became a hit. Hope I don’t need to wait that long for this.
June 9, 2014 at 6:09 pm
DAMN! i guess i wont be seeing the nerd movie in theaters 🙁 (unless james decides to get more theaters, and one happenes to be near me) you bet your ass im getting that dvd though
June 9, 2014 at 6:10 pm
Ya done good James, ya done good… Man I’ve been a fan since 2007, its nuts to see how far you have come. Too bad the movie will never screen in shitty ass little Algonac… I don’t blame you lol. But oh well, I will definitely get the AVGN Movie dvd though. All I got to say is noice job on everything and good luck with everything else.
Why don’t you do a poll or something, like when Paranormal Activity came out you had to demand it. I would like to see it in London 🙁
Off topic, but what is the best DVD release of the original Friday the 13th?
June 9, 2014 at 6:12 pm
Put one at The Loft Cinema in Tucson, AZ!
June 9, 2014 at 6:13 pm
Bring it to Detroit! Been waiting years and really want to see it!
June 9, 2014 at 6:16 pm
Miami, Fort Lauderdale, South Florida??? South Florida is a huge market, I think you should try to arrange an extra screening here!
June 18, 2014 at 11:31 pm
I already try to get him to. But no response. I manage a theater in Miami, that shows Independent films from time to time, and it wouldnt cost him anything to show it, just need to work out the details. He would actually make a little profit, Im sure. James/Mike, if you want to have a huge market in south Fl area, please send me an email, ir check us out on our facebook. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Palace-18/310683002315126?rf=171738046199387
June 9, 2014 at 6:19 pm
Wow, going from making a goofy video game review in your bedroom at your parents’ house to premiering your own full length movie at a famous Hollywood theater in just 10 years. Congrats, James!
June 9, 2014 at 6:29 pm
It’s a long shot that you’ll read this but.. Try screening in Buenos Aires, I don’t care how much time it takes for you to get here but I would love to meet you and see the film on big screen :).
Congratulations James!! You made it!! ^^
June 9, 2014 at 6:35 pm
Please show te movie in Opelika,Alabama please!!!!!
June 9, 2014 at 6:40 pm
Big news, congratulations! I deeply hope, we´ll get to see the movie overseas too!
June 9, 2014 at 6:49 pm
NYC?! Fuck yeah!! I’m there, hope to see you there James! Congrats man! When’s the sequel?! J/k. 😉
June 9, 2014 at 6:54 pm
Are you going to have a show in NJ?
June 9, 2014 at 6:58 pm
Pleaseeee do one in Minneapolis!!
June 10, 2014 at 2:12 am
Was kind of surprised there was nothing at the MOA. Def would have gone to that…oh well. Must buy DVD.
June 9, 2014 at 7:03 pm
Hey james, congrats on your impending release. Hope to see you november in Syracuse,NY!
June 9, 2014 at 7:04 pm
I’m just happy there’s finally a date, and it’s this year! Even if I don’t get to go to a screening I will be buying the DVD 😀
June 9, 2014 at 7:10 pm
Would love to see a Screening at the Edinburgh Fringe festival, especially since it’s such a big thing in the UK and you’ll have people from all over the UK and Europe in the audience.
June 9, 2014 at 7:12 pm
plaese book a theatre in seattle if you can
June 10, 2014 at 4:24 am
I’d like that as well. I know your playing at PAX, but it’s impossible to get into that and I’m really not a convention type anyway.
June 15, 2014 at 7:37 pm
How can there be no screening in Seattle?
Seattle is full of Cinephiles.
Seattle is home to Scarecrow Video, the largest independent video store in the US & possibly the world.
I saw Bubba Ho-Te @ The Varsity Theatre with an intro by Bruce Campbell & Cyrus @ the Harvard Exit Theatre with a QA afterwards with John C. Reilly.
There should be a screening @ Central Cinema with an audience drinking nothing but Rolling Rock 🙂
June 9, 2014 at 7:13 pm
Buy this, don’t bootleg it.
June 9, 2014 at 7:14 pm
You guys should bring the movie to the Ambler Theater in Ambler, PA. In the mean time, I’ll see if I can make it out to Phoenixville. Congrats on the release!
June 9, 2014 at 7:17 pm
Great to hear, James! Thrilled for you! I’ll be waiting patiently for an opportunity to see it.
June 9, 2014 at 7:19 pm
At least it’s not the year of Luigi.
June 9, 2014 at 7:22 pm
Specifically what Chicago theater? I would like to work out Distance as soon as possible, I live in Illinois, so that’s the only feasible one for me to go to.
June 9, 2014 at 7:25 pm
Hey I´m Hilli from JuBaFilms. Maybe you know my team from the internet or maybe not^^
But thats not important right now. I just wanted to say, that I would like to see the movie on the big sceen in germany (Where I live). Our movie theater in Aachen (near cologne) is always searching for some innovative films. They love to organize refreshing special events. Since the owner of the “Cineplex” Aachen are friends of mine, there is maybe a chance to arrange a screening in germany. I can not promise anything, but I would like to connect you with them, so maybe it will happen.
If you think this is a good idea, just contact me: hilli(at)jubafilms.com
June 10, 2014 at 9:20 am
I think you’re better off contacting James yourself at [email protected]
June 9, 2014 at 7:27 pm
Yeah, I called it! Hollywood! Congrats James, I can’t wait to see it! See if you can get a screening in Richmond Kentucky!
PLEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASE BRING TO MASS PLEASE
June 9, 2014 at 7:29 pm
At last it was about time,i do hope though to see that online as well buddy,since some of us we wont have the glory to watch it on hollywood ok?
June 9, 2014 at 7:36 pm
Congratulations on making your dream come true!
June 9, 2014 at 7:47 pm
Hi, I am an Italian fan and I’d really like to see (and support) the movie. Is there a way for me to do it in the next future?
June 9, 2014 at 7:50 pm
oh nvm the answer was in the video already :p
June 9, 2014 at 7:55 pm
Whoa, James! This IS big news! I’m so excited for you! Lots of big things happening in your life! Wish I could say the same for myself. 🙁 Anyway, good luck with the film release!
June 9, 2014 at 8:05 pm
I am so happy there will be a Boston Screening! I am a little disappointed that you will not be making an appearance, but at least we will be able to see it on the big screen! I just hope I can get my tickets before it sells out!
June 9, 2014 at 8:10 pm
Please consider showing the movie at gamescom in cologne. It’s hard to wait for another 6 month and this gaming expo is europe’s biggest gaming event. I would also offer trying to get a movie theatre in Berlin to show it. I know that a lot of people would travel cross country just to see that movie. But flying to the states… oh dear, that would be a more than just dedication.
June 9, 2014 at 8:27 pm
So, where do I buy my tickets? (Chicago)
June 9, 2014 at 9:00 pm
Ready to buy tickets to Hollywood.
June 9, 2014 at 9:01 pm
Ready to buy tickets to Hollywood. Can we get an email notification?
Hey there James, would you be open to the idea of people organizing a viewing for their own city? Like myself I live in Quebec city Canada and I would be delighted to organize a viewing (I have a contact at our local IMAX Theater) we have our first local comic-con this year and I could try and match it with the event! I’m sure a lot of other people would be glad to do the same!
June 9, 2014 at 9:03 pm
This is Awesome! I live in Des Moines, IA, but Hey, I can drive to Chicago and see the film there. I’d like to see and meet James, but just seeing the film, would be amazing all on it’s own! Maybe one day I’ll get to meet James to thank him for the hours of entertainment he’s given me as well as helping fuel my desire to become an Actor and Filmmaker. Great job on finishing the film James! Great work!
June 9, 2014 at 9:16 pm
June 9, 2014 at 9:25 pm
As long as we get to see it in Canada soon, fine with me. Can’t wait!
June 9, 2014 at 9:28 pm
Congratulations, James and the whole team involved! I’m glad you’ve mentioned digital download, because I’ve asked a couple times before. I live in Korea so I have zero chance to see the movie in theatre, and I don’t want to download it illegally. TAKE MY MONEY! 😉
June 9, 2014 at 9:30 pm
Way to go, James! Are you going to try for film festivals in Europe and the U.S.? There’s SXSW in Austin, Texas. There’s Cannes in France. I am sure there’s a ton of others. Film festivals are usually a great place to get your film promoted for mass exposure. Anyway, can’t wait to see the movie in its entirety. 🙂
June 9, 2014 at 9:31 pm
CONGLATURATIONS JAMES! I’m thrilled to know that the movie has been finished and its coming over to my hometown of Boston! You have prooved the justice of our culture by getting the film done and out for everyone to see. Good luck at comic-con, and I can’t wait!!
June 9, 2014 at 9:34 pm
So excited it’s coming to NYC!
June 9, 2014 at 9:37 pm
Me and about 70,000 other “nerds” will be in Atlanta for Dragon Con on Labor Day weekend. That misses the premiere by a few weeks. Will there be multiple showings on the same screen? Will it still be showing then??
June 9, 2014 at 9:38 pm
Hey congrats James and cinemassacre team this is awesome and James you should defenatlly show the AVGN Movie at the Cineplex Cinema in New Glasgow, Pictou County, Nova Scotia Canada as your first official Canada Screening of your film that would be a dream come true to see your movie live at a cinema so Nova Scotians and Canadians have the true viewing experience!
June 9, 2014 at 9:56 pm
Is there ever going to be a screening in south florida? i would love to go!
June 9, 2014 at 9:58 pm
James, if someone told you 10 years ago that you would be making a full length feature film starring that character who bitches about nintendo games while drinking beer, you would have called them crazy…but look at you now… 10 years have passed, and sure enough, you’re releasing a full length feature film starring that foul-mouthed, beer swilling, “nintendo dork” (as kyle like to put it). I can’t believe we’ve come this far… I’ve been with you since 2006, after you released roger rabbit, but before you released teenage mutant ninja turtles. I can’t believe we finally have a firm date for the premiere!
I can’t fucking wait until you get the digital download ready. Since I’m smack dab in the middle of the US (here in Kansas City) all the places that a screening is taking place is too far for my piece of shit car to drive.
Sorry for sperging out on ya, James, but holy shit I’m just so fucking excited for this movie!!! 😀 😀 😀
June 9, 2014 at 10:01 pm
Glad to hear you’ll be there for NYC. I’ll be there to. Congrats on all the screenings. As a film fan I’m sure you’re ecstatic to be showing your movie in some of those theaters.
June 9, 2014 at 10:42 pm
Wow! please show it in Newfoundland, Canada hahaha
Love it………………..Cant wait
June 9, 2014 at 10:44 pm
Congrats James. You’ve came a long way
June 9, 2014 at 10:54 pm
Congrats James!! I can’t wait to see it!! Glad your dreams are coming true!!
June 9, 2014 at 11:01 pm
No love for the South? Personal appearances in the northwest, southwest, and northeast, but nothing in the South? I’ll likely attend the Atlanta showing anyway, but it’s a shame not to get to see you in person. You should consider at least one token stop down this way sometime this year.
June 9, 2014 at 11:06 pm
I’m so excited! Congrats on finally getting the theatres booked, I can’t wait!
June 9, 2014 at 11:17 pm
Im incredibly excited to see this movie! Come to mobile AL,there are independent theaters and a hollywood theater! I hope this all works out for you! i’ll definetly buy a copy!
June 9, 2014 at 11:18 pm
Please, please, please think about a Canadian screening/appearance. I’m in Ottawa, but I would drive the 4 hours to Toronto to see it. Otherwise I have to drive 8 down to Boston!
June 9, 2014 at 11:36 pm
James, if you did a Las Vegas screening that would make my year. Sadly I’m probably the only one asking. But I was an extra on the movie if that counts for anything!
June 9, 2014 at 11:38 pm
Man, I’d be stoked if you showed it in Montreal!
Montreal’s comic-con is coming up in september I believe, it would be the perfect place for you to show it!
June 9, 2014 at 11:45 pm
You should do a showing in Nebraska in Lincoln or Omaha then go to beercade after!
June 9, 2014 at 11:48 pm
This. is . AMAZING! Gonna try and get a ticket, wish you could come to the boston showing. I know your a busy man hopefully ill catch you at a con sometime.
June 9, 2014 at 11:51 pm
Sigh, nearest showing is a 7 hour drive. I guess Chicago is a fun place to go either way.
June 9, 2014 at 11:54 pm
If you guys screen it at my house I’ll buy you pizza
A list of theaters and cities would be helpful. I’m in Houston. Which one in Houston in particular?
June 9, 2014 at 11:56 pm
WOO HOO! Sucks I probably won’t be able to see it since I don’t live anywhere near the screening cities, but I am excited for the worldwide release online and on Bluray. I’ll save up for this one!
June 10, 2014 at 12:06 am
when you finish your music and sound editing take a break.
June 10, 2014 at 12:09 am
JAAAAAAAAAMES 😀 Oh, my goodness! 🙂 I HAVE to see a premier with you there! You’re my hero, man.
June 10, 2014 at 12:15 am
It comes out on my birthday!
June 10, 2014 at 12:24 am
Would it be possible for you to release this film online, after you’ve done all of the screenings, instead of doing it near the end of the year? So could you put it out online in the middle of August, sometime in August, or near the start of September maybe?
June 10, 2014 at 12:43 am
It’d be awesomely amazing to see the Nerd movie on the IMAX screen at the Warren in Wichita,KS.
(I know thats impossible)
