For those out of the loop, Zero Charisma is a new geek-centric film that focuses on the trials and tribulations of a Dungeon Master that begins to feel what little geek power he has slipping away when a new player arrives to challenge his hold over his players’ hearts and minds. Okay, that may be overstating it a little, but it does look to be a much better geek flick than most. Check out the trailer below and see what you think,
And, if you need more info, read the official movie description:
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.
If that’s enough to convince you, then download the movie when it hits the digital market come October 8th. Or just wait around a few more days and see it at an actual theater on October 11th.
