Ten years ago, back in 2013, producer Roger Corman’s video game-inspired action movie Virtually Heroes premiered at The Sundance Film Festival. Despite its premiere, it never landed distribution until last year by Screen Media and they are now looking to finally release the film as a way to celebrate its 10-year anniversary.
Today we’ve got a trailer to share with you that gives you a proper look at what to expect from this crazy movie! It’s been a long time since I’ve seen it, but this trailer sure does bring back the memories! I do remember enjoying the ridiculousness of the movie!
The film was directed by GJ Echternkamp (Frank and Cindy, The Car: Road to Revenge), and it stars Robert Baker (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Out of Time), Brent Chase (Shameless, I Am the Night), Katie Savoy (How I Met Your Mother, NCIS: New Orleans)
and Mark Hamill (Star Wars).
In the film, “Two self-aware characters in a Call of Duty-inspired video game battle endless enemies and their own existential crises when Sgt. Books seeks help from a straight-talking Monk (Hamill) who teaches him the cheat codes of life. Now he can finally break free from the game’s endless battles, take a break from saving the girls at the end of each level, and convince his fellow warrior Lt. Nova that not everything in this game world is as awesome as it seems.”
Screen Media will be releasing the film digitally on January 17th, 2023. Enjoy the trailer!
