This is the trailer for "Angry Video Game Nerd: the Movie"- a project by independent filmmakers James Rolfe and Kevin Finn. It is entirely funded by fan donations and lots of passion.
The film is inspired by the real events of 1982 when the video game Atari produced a game based on the biggest blockbuster movie of that year, E.T., but in rushing to meet the deadline for the Christmas shopping season, blotched it up. It turned out to be a commercial failure and millions of unsold game cartridges were buried in the middle of a desert in Alamogordo.
Watching the trailer makes one look forward to the intense and funny movie. There is no scheduled deadline for the film and once completed (the producers are hoping for mid 2013), it will be released on DVD and blu-ray.
