“New York Comic Con is the ultimate destination for the latest and greatest in entertainment,” said Lance Fensterman, Global Vice President of ReedPOP “Zero Charisma is a signature piece of nerdom cinema that we know is going to resonate with our Fans and as the dungeon master of the event. I’m thrilled to kick off this year’s event with its screening.”
“We're extremely excited to be premiering Zero Charisma at New York Comic Con,” said directors Katie Graham and Andrew Matthews. “It's hard to believe that this film we shot literally in our backyard last year is about revealed to a wide audience and we any think of a more fitting way to kick it off!”
Tribeca Film and Nerdist Industries will co-release the film this fall beginning October 8, 2013 on cable/telco and satellite video-on-demand platforms, as well as iTunes, Amazon Watch Instantly, VUDU, Xbox, Playstation, and Google Play, followed by a theatrical release on October 11, 2013.
Zero Charisma world premiered at SXSW Film Festival where it won the Audience Award in the Narrative Spotlight category. It received strong critical acclaim with Ain't It Cool News noting that "Zero Charisma is geek heaven” and Badass Digest raved that “it is, almost certainly, the best film ever made about nerds…it’s hilarious, it’s sweet, and in the end it’s just a little bit heartbreaking.”
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 — along with everything else in his life — 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. Caught in delusions of grandeur, Scott must roll the dice and risk everything to expose Miles as the fraud he believes him to be. A darkly comedic fable of epic proportions, Zero Charisma is an ode to nerds from every realm.
