Titmouse, the production company known for insanely weird Adult Swim classics such as Metalocalypse, Black Dynamite, and Superjail!, is getting very close to the release of its first feature length film, Nerdland. Other than the fact that it was going to contain a "gratuitous amount of violence, sex, nudity, and drugs," as Bleeding Cool reported when the movie was first announced back at New York Comic Con in 2015, we didn't really know what to expect until today when the redband trailer dropped.
So what should we have expected? Plenty of animated nudity, weirdness, Hollywood desperation, and hilarity as delivered by stars Paul Rudd and Patton Oswalt. The very strong cast on this one also includes: Hannibal Buress, Molly Shannon, Mike Judge, Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome (perhaps better known as Garfunkel and Oates), Jackson Publick (of Venture Brothers) and Brendon Small (Metalocalypse).
If you want an idea of the sense of humor this film is bringing, the trailer claims that it is rated "intoxicated," for "strong bloody violence, puckered anus, language, drug content and some nudity & stupidity." You can check out the official synopsis below, via Collider.
NERDLAND is the story of two best friends, aspiring screenwriter ELLIOT and aspiring actor JOHN, whose dreams of super-stardom have fizzled. With their 30th birthdays looming and their desperation growing, John and Elliot decide that in this 24/7, celebrity-obsessed world of over-shared navel-gazing, there are more ways to become famous — or infamous — then ever before. So why not become famous TODAY? NERDLAND is that day.
Making up for what they lack in brains and talent with abundant, witless enthusiasm, John and Elliot troll Los Angeles on a fame-grab journey, encountering and abusing friends both new and old. Navigating their hyper-stimulating landscape of consumerism gone wild, our two consumers want desperately to be consumed — and they will have their FAME, no matter what the cost.
The movie is set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 14.
