    James Rolfe, popularly known for his Angry Video Game Nerd reviews, has been talking about making a film around the character for some time. While he's been slaving away at the project, some wondered if anything would ever come of it.

    Oh, ye of little faith, there is good news to be had. A trailer for the film has just been released...

    The budget must be huge, looks like they're making good use of it. Can't wait to see the final product.

    Wow I thought the premise of a AVGN movie would be shit but I'm surprised. Some of the stuff was actually pretty funny.

    Although even before I saw the trailer I thought "It'd be funny if it was about ET". And it is. Well played.

    I just hope he goes back to making his episodes after the movie is done. I miss them.

    Looks decent! I lolled a few times at the trailer, impressive.

    Because just simply reviewing ET is not enough to do it justice!
    I can't wait to see this movie!

    I'm still trying to figure out on what just happened...

    But seriously, it looks pretty good.

    The budget was $325K which is peanuts for a feature length film -- very impressive in that regard.

    However, I can't share everybody's optimism for this though, it seems very amateur and ... not funny. The production values seem on par with a film like 'Good Burger' or something of that ilk, ugh.

    Still a big avgn fan so I can't wait till he gets back to his day job. :) The Ghost and Goblins episode was hysterical -- one his best.

    I'm okay with the lack of nerd videos if Mike Matei actually did good videos. I mean, I liked his Obscure NES and SNES games videos.

    But on topic: this actually looks cool. I was very skeptical, I mean, like how the fuck do you do a movie based off a character who just reviews video games?!? I guess he figured it out and well, it's about E.T. And it doesn't look that bad. Something that I'd be interested in, that's for sure. Definitely looks higher quality than what I thought it'd be.

    I stopped watching the trailer after a few seconds, they must have put the funniest part of this little movie right in the trailer....
    DON'T WATCH IT!!!

    You'll get spoiled, I really wanna enjoy this movie, and it's definitely higher quality that I'd ever expected it to be !
    Can't wait for a release.

    This is better than I expected!

    [/ytcomm]

    Cinemassacare is seriously doing this?! FOR REAL? This looks like it's better than ANY AVGN, Motherfucker Mike, Mike Reviews or any other show on the Cinemassacare or JamesNintendoNerd channel. Lal! I remember when I had a little interest in film making! :ninja: I may just do a marathon of AVGN episodes to celebrate the release of this film!

    ON A LAST NOTE: I'm not an AVGN fanboy or AVGN Nazi but, I really enjoy the series!

    One of the DVD extras should be the pause music from Battletoads.
