MAX RELOAD AND THE NETHER BLASTERS is hitting theaters on August 7, and VOD on August 11. The film stars Greg Grunberg, Tom Plumley, Hassie Harrison, Joey Morgan, Lukas Gage, Joseph D. Reitman and Richard Lippert with Kevin Smith, Lin Shaye, Martin Kove, Jesse Kove, and featuring the voice of Wil Wheaton.
When small-town video game store clerk Max Jenkins (Tom Plumley) discovers and plays the only known copy of Nether Dungeon, the legendary lost installment of the Nether Game series, he accidentally unleashes the ancient “Curse of The Ages,” turning friends and family into possessed ghouls hell-bent on destroying civilization. It’s up to Max and his best friends Reggie (Joey Morgan) and Liz (Hassie Harrison) along with old-school gaming gurus Eugene Wylder (Greg Grunberg) and Barton Grabowski (Joseph D. Reitman) to figure out how to beat the dark forces of The Nether before it’s GAME OVER for humanity.
Featuring Kevin Smith, Lin Shaye, Martin Kove, Jesse Kove and voice talent by Wil Wheaton, Max Reload and The Nether Blasters is a love letter to gaming, retro nostalgia and the wonderfully ridiculous plotlines of 1980s adventure-cinema.
