Kyle Newman's Fanboys Hit Theaters Today - Go See It!

February 6, 2009

Fanboys Movie

I don't really want to support The Weinstein Company, but I do really want to support Kyle Newman. It's taken almost two full years for his movie to finally get out from under the wrath of Darth Weinstein, and it's finally arrived! Originally slated for release on August 17th of 2007, Kyle Newman's Fanboys is just hitting theaters today. We've pulled together a list of the movie theaters and cities showing the movie this weekend, so be sure to find the nearest location to you and go see it! It's rare that I do some heavy promotion like this, but it's a final reminder that after a nearly endless studio battle, Fanboys is finally out in the wild!

What do we need to do to convince you to go see Fanboys? First off, if you are a Star Wars fan at all, you should be there without question, or you can't call yourself a Star Wars fan. Additionally, you can read my review, for which I gave this a 7 out of 10, and also watch the trailer again. I think that should be enough! Below is the complete list of cities and theaters where Fanboys is showing this weekend.

If anyone ends up catching Fanboys this weekend, be sure to come back here and let us know what you thought! There's a lot to love, and potentially a lot to hate, about it, but I'm pretty damn sure that real Star Wars fanboys will love it in the end. I know I'm already excited to see it again myself. Enjoy!

I saw it and thought it was okay. It came off like a typical buddy/sex/journey/nerd comedy. Nothing that great about it. I really preferred Coraline over this.

I am not travelling to another fricken state to see this movie! I'm close to doing it because this movie looks fricken funny as hell...but no...this movie can come to me.

This movie won't have a very long shelf-life in theaters, but I imagine it'll find a home on DVD. The whole thing kind of comes off like a Kevin Smith diatribe come to life, anyway.

9's not that great. 8 cities, w00h00. Seriously, I want to see it, on HBO. Why would people pay $8 for these type of movies? Wait, watch it at home with friends and save your money in these times. Wanna watch something blow up then go to the movies.

Live close to all the Philly theatres and not one of them has advertised it and in the Phialdelphia Inquirer it has the smallest ad possible. This is being set up to fail.

Ryan on Feb 6, 2009


it's not going into wide release, is it? i'd love to see it. but i don't thin my friends are willing to drive 1 hour or more to see this movie. i'll most likely get it on dvd.

"if you are a Star Wars fan at all, you should be there without question, or you can't call yourself a Star Wars fan." Yeah, that makes sense.

Niko on Feb 6, 2009


That movie fucking sucked shit. You can't convey your horrible taste any louder than by endorsing this film, ugh.

Fred on Feb 6, 2009


Take AMC Broadway Cinemas(LA) off that list! Bastards turned me away saying something was wrong with the film and it needed fixing...

Mitch on Feb 6, 2009


just saw it. fuckin awesome. final answer. thank you ;D

Nick S. on Feb 7, 2009


To address all of you who are complaining... I know this film isn't perfect! It's fun, but I didn't love it, hence my review. This article was to show support because of all the crap that its director and the film have gone through over the last 2 years. Even if it's not a great film in the end, I'm supporting it for those reasons!

Alex Billington on Feb 8, 2009


I just saw it and the Metreon in downtown San Fran. Do not let the lack of promotion fool you this was an awesome movie even if you know nothing about starwars

Kulasstar on Feb 8, 2009
