Back in 2011, we told you about fan created film The Fellows Hip – Rise of the Gamers. With a slightly changed name – it’s now simply called Rise of the Fellowship – this comic movie about geeks at a gaming competition has now been given a release date! The film, which won the GenCon 2012 Film Festival, will be available December 3rd on VOD, Walmarkt, iTunes, and you can already pre-order on Amazon.com.
The creators tell us that Rise of the Fellowship ‘is a buddy-comedy written in honor of online gamers and The Lord of the Rings. Full of Tolkien-references and good-hearted parody, The Fellows Hip [sic] will appeal to Tolkien-fans and gamers alike, as well as anyone who’s never been part of the in-crowd.’
