Plot Synopsis
We’re equal opportunity nerds here at Nerdist. We love video games and comic books and science, but of course we love geeking out about horror too! That’s why our beloved leader Chris Hardwick and the rest of the Nerdist head honchos first partnered with Nerdist Presents: The Hive, a fun and unique horror film, earlier this year. Above, we proudly present to you the first trailer from Nerdist Presents: The Hive debuted during the Nerdist Industries panel at this year’s Comic-Con just hours ago. Directed by David Yarovesky and produced by Cary Granat (the Scream franchise), The Hive is a fun, disgusting terror of a love story involving a virus that manifests itself as eye-bulging goo. After a mysterious plane crashes in the woods, couple Adam (Gabriel Basso) and Katie (Kathryn Prescott) investigate only to find a disease that quickly goes pandemic. They must fight through amnesia and disturbing memories to find out what happened and survive. House musician Steve Aoki — The Hive also features tracks from Aoki’s latest album Neon Future — also serves as executive producer of the film. James Gunn calls it “the most horrifying and disgusting love story ever,” and later this fall (hopefully September) you can find out why.

Plot Synopsis
If you put everything about the 80s in a blender, then somehow ran the resulting smoothie through a translator that only speaks languages from another dimension, what you’d wind up with still wouldn't be half as hilarious, weird, and oddly charming as Miami Connection. It’s 1987 and motorcycle ninjas trafficking cocaine are making life difficult in Florida. Who can stop them? The obvious answer, of course: a rock band called Dragon Sound who all know martial arts, led by a 9th degree Taekwondo black belt (played by Y.K. Kim, actual black belt who also co-wrote & co-directed the movie and does a little motivational speaking on the side). They all live together in a big house and perform songs with intimidating titles like “Friends.” Seriously, the scene where they perform “Friends” is not to be missed. And there’s so much more to love! We didn’t even mention the subplot about one of the guys saving up to buy a suit! One thing’s for sure: if anyone’s gonna shut down the Miami drug trade with the power of friendship and surprisingly intense martial arts, it’s these guys. Impossible to explain but also impossible to forget. Bring all your friends to rock against the ninjas with Mike, Kevin, and Bill, live in theaters nationwide!

MET Opera: Lulu
Wed 12/02/2015

Plot Synopsis
One of the most important—not to mention notorious—stage works of the 20th century, Lulu is the drama of a young woman who sexually and emotionally dominates a wide range of willing victims, both male and female. Herself a victim of society, she seems to embody all the frightening aspects of the human condition, a combination of primal instinct and distinctly modern amorality. Berg’s score employs the twelve-tone technique pioneered by his teacher Arnold Schoenberg but in a keenly dramatic way that makes it accessible to all kinds of audiences. Berg died before completing Act III of the opera, and Lulu was first performed as a fragment. Efforts to finish the score based on Berg’s notes were hindered by his widow and only realized, after her death, by the Austrian composer Friedrich Cerha, in 1977. Act I

RiffTrax Live: Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny
Thu 12/03/2015

Plot Synopsis
One of the strangest Christmas movies ever made, Santa and The Ice Cream Bunny defies logic, reason, and we believe several laws of physics. Santa’s sleigh is stuck on the beach, and only one creature can help him: The Ice Cream Bunny! Unfortunately, the fire truck that the Ice Cream Bunny drives needs repairs, so he’ll be a little late coming from Pirates World, the run-down theme park that he lives in. We’d like to take this moment to remind, that yes, this is a real movie that people actually made. Never fear though, because Santa has a great story to pass the time: the tale of Thumbelina. Marvel as this beloved fairy tale is warped into something resembling Frozen starring an all-inmate cast with the production values of a crime re-enactment from a 90s episode of Unsolved Mysteries. Co-starring a pig, a sweltering man in a gorilla suit, paper mache birds, soiled Santa costumes, and several pervy moles, Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny is one of the most popular RiffTrax titles of all time and a bonafide holiday classic. Mike, Kevin, and Bill are delighted to inflict, er, Present it live for the very first time!

Director Sally Cookson now brings her celebrated production to the National, presented as a single, exhilarating performance.

Plot Synopsis
Rosalind, the daughter of Duke Senior (the banished duke), is raised at the court of Duke Frederick (who is younger brother to Duke Senior and took over his dukedom), with her cousin Celia (daughter to Duke Frederick). She falls in love with a young man named Orlando, but before she can even think twice about it, she is banished by Duke Frederick, who threatens death if she comes near the court again. Celia, being Rosalind's best friend, goes with Rosalind (who is disguised as a boy, Ganymede) and Touchstone, the court's fool, to the forest of Arden. Upon their arrival in the forest, they happen upon Orlando and his manservant, who are fleeing the wrath of Orlando's eldest brother. What follows is an elaborate scheme devised by the cross-dressing Rosalind to find out the verity of Orlando's supposed passion for her, and to further capture his heart, through the witty and mischievous façade of Ganymede.
