‘The Knights of Badassdom’ Sounds like WPR Movie of the Year
I only say sounds like because we’re waiting for the trailer, it’s got friggin Peter Dinklage, Ryan Kwanten, Danny Pudi and Summer Glau…LARPing. Yeah, we’re excited too! Not since the funny as hell Role Models movie have we witnessed LARPing on this scale, and even though I would never try it, I can’t wait to see this movie.
Directed by Joe Lynch, it was announced today that Kwanten, Glau, Pudi, and the great Dink himself will be at Comic Con on July 23rd to release the trailer for us unwashed masses. We can’t wait to behold it, just look at the images!
Here is your official synopsis:
In this humorous fantasy adventure from IndieVest Pictures, Joe (Ryan Kwanten) is a heavy metal rocker who’s just gone through a painful breakup with his girlfriend, Beth (Margarita Levieva). His concerned roommates (Steve Zahn, Peter Dinklage) kidnap him to their LARP (Live Action Role Playing) gathering, where he enters a realm of fantasy escapism in which pretend knights, elves, and barbarians clash with foam weaponry on a mock battlefield. When Joe’s “sorcerer” roommate (Zahn) inadvertently summons a deadly succubus that takes Beth’s seductive form, bloody reality crashes down upon their fantasy world. Once LARPers start to turn up dead, the make-believe wizards and warriors must become the real life heroes they have been pretending to be in order to conquer the evil that has been unleashed.
