Watch: First Trailer for Nerdist's First Comedy Feature 'Zero Charisma'
"No, you and your friends sitting in there pretending to be elves and fairies, that's what's disturbing." From the popular podcast Nerdist, featuring comedian Chris Hardwick, comes their first feature length film, Zero Charisma, and it's right in their wheelhouse. A manchild of a nerd (Sam Eidson) living with his grandmother finds his comfy position as the Game Master of a role-playing game threatened when a hipster nerd named Miles (Garrett Graham) joins the group and becomes the coolest kid at the table. This looks like a hilarious, low budget comedy with all the right notes to hit with nerds and general audiences. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Katie Graham & Andrew Matthews' Zero Charisma, originally from Apple:
And here's the epic poster for the nerdy comedy:
Katie Graham (cinematographer on The American Scream) and Andrew Matthews (editor of The Best Worst Movie) enter narrative filmmaking as directors of the comedy Zero Charisma, the first feature film from Nerdist Industries. As the strict Game Master of a fantasy role-playing game, Scott (Sam Eidson) leads his friends in a weekly quest through mysterious lands from the safety of his grandmother's kitchen. But his mastery of his own domain starts to slip when neo-nerd hipster Miles (Garrett Graham) joins the game, winning over the group with his confident charm and dethroning Scott with an unexpected coup. Tribeca Film will distribute the film on iTunes starting October 8th and theaters October 11th. Looking funny?

Doesn't look too bad. The story reminds me a bit of the movie 'Unicorn City'. (Without the roleplaying part of course.) (Btw., there's an earlier trailer of this from the SXSW 2013 festival. It's over three minutes long and shows more scenes from the movie. Just for the info :-). You can find it on Youtube.)
