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.

Here’s the official synopsis for Zero Charisma:

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.
