Max Reload and the Nether Blasters is a 2020 American science-fiction comedy horror feature film about a video game store clerk who has to save humanity.
Directed by Scott Conditt and Jeremy Tremp based on the former’s screenplay and the latter’s storyline, the CineForge Media production stars Kevin Smith, Wil Wheaton, Lin Shaye and Greg Grunberg.
A small-town video game store clerk must go from zero to hero after accidentally unleashing the forces of evil from a cursed Colecovision game… Max Jenkins’ gaming fantasies collide with reality when a legendary “lost” instalment of the Nether Game series appears on the store counter of his workplace, Fallout Games.
Unbeknownst to Max, the game bears a “Curse of The Ages”, and in playing it, he has just unlocked the Nether, an ancient malevolent force of evil from the cartridge, upon his small hometown. Along with a mysterious masked man and his two best friends, Liz and Reggie, Max must figure out how to beat the Nether at its own game before its game over for humanity…
The movie will be released theatrically on August 7th, then on VOD August 11th courtesy of MVD Entertainment Group.
