Wanna bet the girl on the poster appears nowhere in the movie?

Remember The Wizard? Of course you do. Road-trip movie starring Fred Savage and Jenny Lewis, about a cross-country trip to participate in a Nintendo competition, mocked at the time, loved semi-ironically by hipsters nowadays.

Noobz, starring Jason Mewes, promises a look at gamer culture from the inside...and a cross-country trip to participate in an online gaming competition. Judging by the trailer, though, my guess is that its best hope lies in semi-ironic rediscovery twenty or so years from now.

Noobz opens theatrically January 25th, and hits DVD/On-Demand four days later.
