Watch: Paul Rudd, Patton Oswalt’s Comedy ‘Nerdland’ Gets Red-Band Trailer (EXCLUSIVE)

One of the attention-grabbers on the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival slate is “Nerdland,” the starry, adult animated feature that opens the festival’s Viewpoints competition.

Paul Rudd and Patton Oswalt lead a cast that includes Hannibal Buress, Mike Judge and Molly Shannon, among others. Chris Prynoski directs from a script by Andrew Kevin Walker. The Hollywood-set story centers on an aspiring screenwriter (Oswalt) and an aspiring actor (Rudd) who make a last-ditch effort to achieve fame before they hit their 30th birthdays.

The inclusion of “Nerdland” on the Tribeca slate comes after the buzzy debut of another R-rated animated feature, “Sausage Party,” at SXSW earlier this year. Will “Nerdland” make a similar splash at Tribeca? Take a mature-audiences-only look at the new feature below.

The 2016 Tribeca fest runs April 13-25, with the world premiere screening of “Nerdland” set for April 14.

    From the creator of Downtown, Motorcity, and Megas XLR, I’m down for anything Prynoski does. Glad to know he has a feature debut.

    FYI, I believe you’ve accidentally switched Oswald’s and Rudd’s characters
