Meet the cast and crew of 'This giant papier mache boulder is actually really heavy’ with a special screening of the film.

This Giant Papier Mache Boulder Is Actually Really Heavy is an epic action comedy in the vein of Galaxy Quest meets Monty Python. It tells the story of three ordinary guys thrust into the world of a B-grade 60's space flick. Trapped in a low-budget universe, they soon discover latex monsters and evil space villains are the least of their problems. Somehow, they have to fight their way home, before they get lost in space…forever.
