West Coast Premiere
Titmouse’s disgustingly depraved and hilarious excursion into the big city dreams of Hollywood through the eyes of two delusional wannabes.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last forever, you’ll know that Chris Prynoski is THE shit in the world of animation. And while you might not know his name, you’ll know the groundbreaking work that his Titmouse Animation Studio is responsible for including: Metalocalypse, Superjail and Moonbeam City
Well, you’ll be glad to know that Prynoski and his revelatory insanity has transitioned seamlessly from the small screen to the very big with NERDLAND, his first feature. Written by Andrew Kevin Walker (the same Andrew Kevin Walker who wrote Gwyneth Paltrow’s severed head into a box in SEVEN), NERDLAND follows the quest of two hapless roommates, aspiring actor John (Paul Rudd) and would-be screenwriter Elliot (Patton Oswalt), as they attempt to fulfill their destiny in breaking it big and getting their name in Hollywood lights. Of course, knowing Prynoski, you know that nothing for these two is going to go plan. You also know that it will be wrong, raucous and definitely not the type of animation that your parents would approve of.
In addition to Rudd and Oswalt, Prynoski surrounds himself with the best in the business pulling in a litany of comedic talents including Hannibal Burress, Kate Micucci, Riki Lindhome, Mike Judge, Molly Shannon and Paul Scheer to twist the blade on our hopelessly lost leads and the city itself. Of particular delight to myself and fellow Howard Stern Superfans is an (all-too brief) cameo from our favorite alcoholic lobster, Richard Christie.
NERDLAND is one helluva filthy blast and one that is supremely fitting to be splattered across the screen of the home of the very first Hollywood premiere.
