Tribeca Film and Nerdist Industries have released the trailer for Zero Charisma. The movie follows Scott (Sam Eidson), a monomaniacal nerd who lords over a Dungeons & Dragons-style game, but whose power is threatened when a “cool” geek joins the group. I saw the film at SXSW, and while it’s quite funny, it also de-romanticizes the current popular perception of nerds to a more realistic, sadder figure. Eidson is tremendous in the role, and it’s a movie that will have you both laughing and somewhat disturbed. For more on the film, I encourage you to read Scott Wampler’s enthusiastic review from SXSW (where the film picked up the Audience Award).
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Zero Charisma will be available on iTunes and On Demand on October 8th, and in select theaters on October 11th.
