The big day

James / July 21st, 2014

I’ve returned to the West Coast, and I have the finished movie in my hands. Words can’t describe the emotions, when something you’ve worked on for so many years is now finally done, and is going to be seen tonight for the first time.


Thanks to the rest of the world for patiently waiting. I will try to give you some Twitter updates tonight.


UPDATE: I’ve just been informed that we’ve had some real bad luck. A big Marvel movie premiere is happening less than 2 blocks away from ours, which means Hollywood Boulevard is a mess. Anyone attending the AVGN Movie premiere, be warned. Get there early. I’d suggest taking a cab or some kind ofย public transportation. Parking will be a nightmare.

    Knowing the AVGN movie premiered on my birthday is the best present I could have asked for! Thanks for all the effort!

    This movie is going to kick so much arse I have a rock hard semi just thinking about it.

    Wow. I’ve waited 4 years (how long I’ve been watching) for this moment. Now it’s finally here.

    Congrats, buddy (not that we’ve ever met but still) ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy it. Relish it. And think back to all those movies projected on sheets ๐Ÿ˜€ You deserve it to sit back and enjoy your creation with the people you made it for.

    I knew from the moment you’d announced plans to shoot an AVGN movie that you were going to see it through to the end, but it is still hard to believe that you’ve reached a milestone such as this one–you’re first major film had a Hollywood premiere. How many people can say the same?

    Best of luck, dude. Can’t wait to own this on blu ray, and for whatever happens next in your career.

    Good luck and congratulations! After all these years I’m still an excited fan! I can tell the movie isn’t going to be like the avgn show, but I suspect it will fit as “avgn: the movie” nicely. Is LJN making the game based on the movie?

    Congrats on the premiere as the movie wasn’t that bad. It was nice to see it on the big screen as well for it to be at the Egyptian Theatre. Your movie has made its mark and thanks for that ending.

      Such a tease, still gotta wait a little bit here in Finland ๐Ÿ™

    It’s a wrap! I guess… I’m dying of excitement to watch it digitally released!

    Congratulation! The movie was incredible and I can’t even described how happy it made me to see it and what it included. I can’t even imagine how happy you must be right now. My wife and I drove from Virginia to LA (we are moving to Cali) and actually saw many of your locations along the way and it just put such a unique feeling to have made the long drive and finally see the movie in the places we had just passed. I can’t wait for the DVD and can’t wait to see what you do next, because pulling off that movie with that budget was.. So impressive words cannot describe. NERD!!

    I can’t wait to see this on the big screen. Only 5 days away for me.

  • July 22, 2014 at 3:23 pm

    Woop woop!

    • July 22, 2014 at 6:09 pm

      I contributed to the campaign and now I’ve got tickets for the showing on the 24th… can’t wait! The latest trailer looked great. Congratulations, James. Can’t wait to see the Nerd’s biggest adventure.
