Nerdist House 2020 officially kicks off at 10am PT on Saturday, July 11, 2020. Previously announced events include:

Saturday, July 11:

10:00 am – 11:00 am PT Hannibal: A Delicious Reunion is a perfect prelude to a Hannibal rewatch, now that the series is on Netflix. Join Nerdist’s Rosie Knight for the much-awaited reunion of the cast and crew of Hannibal, featuring series creator Bryan FullerMads Mikkelsen (Hannibal Lecter), Hugh Dancy (Will Graham), Gillian Anderson (Bedelia Du Maurier), Caroline Dhavernas (Alana Bloom), Katie Isabelle (Margot Verger), Raúl Esparza (Frederick Chilton), Hettiene Park (Beverly Katz), Kacey Rohl (Abigail Hobbs), Scott Thompson (Jimmy Price), Aaron Abrams (Brian Zeller), executive producer Martha De Laurentiis, co-producer Loretta Ramos, director/executive producer David Slade, and food consultant Janice Poon. Chat with fellow fans and with the Hannibal cast and crew, and help raise funds for The Okra Project.

11:00 am – 12:00 pm PT The Ultimate RAD Reunion brings together some very special guests from a 1986 cult classic: Rad. In this special retrospective, stars Talia ShireBill Allen, and Bart Conner, as well as Robert Schwartzman, who painstakingly remastered the film from its original negatives into stunning 4K, sit down with host and Rad superfan Dan Casey to discuss the film’s legacy, rare behind-the-scenes stories, and much more. Directed by Hal Needham and released at the height of the BMX craze, Rad stands the test of time through its relentless charisma, over-the-top stunts, and resonant emotional core. One of the wildest, weirdest, and most wonderful films of the 1980s, Rad is a BMX coming-of-age story like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Mostly because until now the film was incredibly hard to find! Thanks to Robert Schwartzman and Utopia, this fan-favorite film is finally available on Blu-ray through Vinegar Syndrome.

Screen Shot 2014-10-08 at 8.22.50 AM

When Season 4 of The Walking Dead ended with our heroes locked inside a train car at the hand of the Terminus residents, the cliffhanger was almost too much to bear. But, as Nerdist News’s Jessica Chobot, Dan Casey and Malik Forté find out in the latest installment from Nerdist Presents, the suspense of waiting for Rick Grimes to speak may just be deadlier than the virus itself. Link to alternate ending:

Nerdist Presents Batman’s Parents Aren’t Dead

Screen Shot 2014-09-10 at 8-1.37.07 AM

What happens when the entire premise of a superhero’s persona comes waltzing into his living room? Let’s find out together, shall we?

The first episode of the new sketch series, Nerdist Presents, has arrived...as have Batman’s parents! In this hilarious sketch written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker (creators and writers of The Thrilling Adventure Hour) and directed by Andrew Bowser, the gravel-voiced Dark Knight is surprised to find that his supposedly dead parents are very much alive. Take a seat in Wayne Manor as Thomas and Martha Wayne, played by Marc Evan Jackson and Paget Brewster non-chalantly reminisce about ‘little Bruce’ while Batman…err, The Batman (Mark Gagliardi)…has to grapple with the fact that his entire vendetta is unfounded. Just your average, oops-I-thought-my-parents-were-murdered-so-I-became-a-masked-vigilante, dysfunctional family!

New one-off sketches, videos, and parodies from Nerdist Presents will premiere bi-weekly on Wednesdays, taking on everything from Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and more – only on Nerdist.com!

“Last year I had the pleasure of moderating the Doctor Who panel at Wondercon, and saw some amazing booths & people walking the show floor. At the time, I had only wished that this Con was closer to where I live in L.A. With the news that it had moved to Anaheim in 2012, I can only infer that I willed this into reality. Naturally, I’m super-excited—both for the southern migration of Wondercon and my weird new psionic power.” –Chris Hardwick.
