‘Nerdland’ Trailer: Paul Rudd and Patton Oswalt Want Fame at Any Cost in Raunchy Animated Comedy

The film will play in theaters for one night next month.

Andrew Kevin Walker’s screenwriting credits include “Seven,” “Sleepy Hollow” and “8mm,” so of course it only makes sense he would return from his post-“Wolfman” hiatus with an animated comedy voiced by Paul Rudd and Patton Oswalt. “Nerdland,” which stars the two as besties about to turn 30 with little to show for it, has just released its first trailer. Watch it below and let the disenchantment wash over you in waves.

Living in Hollywood and coming to terms with the fact that their supposed talent is going to waste, the two hatch a plan to finally become celebrities by seeking not fame but infamy — a process that includes driving around with cameras and imagining all the terrible acts they might observe or take part in. Hannibal Buress, Mike Judge, Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci also lend their voices to “Nerdland.”

The film was directed by Chris Prynoski, whose previous work includes more than a dozen episodes of “Metalocalypse,” the TV movie “Major Lazer” and even an episode of “Daria.” “Nerdland,” which marks his feature debut, will play in theaters for one night on December 6 before hitting VOD a month later.
