Fanboys finally came out last week, right? No really, it is now playing in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, Philadelphia, Seattle, Austin and will be expanding to Boston, Washington DC, Detroit, Atlanta, Denver, New Haven, Orlando, Phoenix, Columbus, OH and Raleigh, NC on February 20th. No joke. After all the film has been through — rumors, re-cuts, Judd Apatow, Harvey Weinstein and cancer (those last two may be closely related) — Kyle Newman’s love letter to Star Wars fandom is finally out there, ready to be consumed by the masses. And to celebrate, the folks at Gen Art hosted a Los Angeles premiere complete with Stormtroopers, Wookies and a cast and crew Q&A.
Luckily, someone caught the whole thing on video and posted it online for the world to see. Even better — my good friend Erik Davis at Cinematical has led me to said video, which has in turn brought it to your doorstep. And even though I we now have video evidence of the film’s release, I will not be sold until I can actually go see it in my own town — which as of next week will be Austin, so I’m in luck. The video below includes interviews with cast (including the always lovely Jamie King) and some fan stuff as well. If you aren’t in one of the cities listed above, this will have to keep you fed for the moment.
