'The Smosh Movie' will be a misadventure based on Anthony and Ian's YouTube personas, a date for the movies release has not yet been set and it's not yet known if the movie will get a theatrical release in addition to the planned digital release.
Anthony joked about the first thing they had to learn while making the film, "we had to learn how to act," adding that they had been assigned an acting coach to help them improve their comedic skills. "In our sketches we're just doing our own thing. In the movie, we’re each playing ourselves… but it was exaggerated versions of our lives."
