8-Bit Christmas Is About An 80s Kid’s Epic Quest To Get An NES

Right now, it’s a common problem for gamers to complain about how hard it is to get their hands on a PS5. Well, almost four decades ago, gamers in the 80s experienced the same problem, but with the iconic console that was the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) or Famicom (to those who lived in Japan or Asia).

This new original HBO Max movie is about a kid’s epic quest to get an NES of his own. Set in suburban Chicago in the late 1980s, the story centres on ten-year-old Jake Doyle’s herculean quest to get the latest and greatest video game system for Christmas.

The film stars Neil Patrick Harris (of How I Met Your Mother fame) and Winslow Fegley (“Come Play,” “Fast Layne”) as the adult and young Jake, respectively, June Diane Raphael (“Long Shot,” “Grace and Frankie”), with David Cross (“Pitch Perfect 2,” the “Kung Fu Panda” films), and Steve Zahn (“The White Lotus”).

Michael Dowse (“Coffee & Kareem”) directed the film from a screenplay by Kevin Jakubowski, based on his book of the same name.

8-Bit Christmas premieres on HBO Max on 24 November 2021.
