Amongst bloggers, Sundance interviews can be a controversial topic. On one hand, you’re given unprecedented access to the stars and filmmakers behind what are potentially some of the biggest films of the year. Doing so, however, means seeing fewer movies, because huge chunks of time must be devoted to traveling to and from interview locations, which are often remote and incredibly loud.
Generally, we here at /Film let the movies do the talking when it comes to Sundance. But as a huge fan of the comedy duo known as Tim and Eric, I knew I’d probably never, ever get the chance to speak to them one on one ever again. So I did. And I filmed it.
After the jump, watch a ten minute video interview with not only Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim but their friend Will Forte too. We discuss Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, which hits video on demand January 27 and theaters on March 2 (watch the review here), as well as their sense of humor, process, the likelihood they’ll return to television and more.

“I paid a billion dollars for that piece of shit?” Look, the humor of Tim and Eric is not for everyone. In fact, it’s not for most people. But if it’s for you, today might be the second greatest day of your life. The only day that will be better is when you finally get to see Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie in full. That day is coming soon (it’ll be playing at the Sundance Film Festival, hit on demand January 27 and be in theaters March 2) but, for now, there’s a very, repeat VERY, NSFW red-band trailer for the film featuring Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Robert Loggia, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte and William Atherton. They’re all this this trailer, which is slightly more straight forward than the teaser trailer that was out earlier this week. It’s after the jump. Read More »
In the grand tradition of Tim & Eric, I have no idea what exactly it is you are about to watch. It is, without a doubt, 42 seconds of video teasing the release of Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, starring, written and directed by the team behind Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim. According to this tease (a teaser trailer, I guess), it’ll be released in theaters on March 2, 2012 and on-demand January 27, 2012. Previous reports have stated it’s a movie about what happens when two men spend $1 billion on a movie and co-stars Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Robert Loggia, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte and William Atherton along with its titular duo. But you’ll see none of them in this trailer.
