The child-of-the-'80s nerd version of Geraldo in Al Capone's vault is going down in just over two weeks, folks. Xbox Entertainment Studios and director Zak Penn (screenwriter of such Marvel movies as X-Men 2 and Avengers) will shoot a documentary as they open the landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico, in which Atari supposedly buried mass copies of what has infamously become known as the worst movie-based video game ever.

Rumors that the pile of games is actually a Horcrux hidden by Rob Bricken are most assuredly unfounded.

If you're in the area, you can stop by and watch:
