Prepare for ‘The Knights of Badassdom’

The title alone just makes those pants of yours tighten up just enough to want more, but it gets better. Besides a kick-ass name, the film stars Summer Glau, Peter Dinklage, Ryan Kwanten, and Danny Pudi you may just have the best summer movie in forever. You have Serenity‘s River and Game of Thrones Tyrion Lannister, not to mention True Blood‘s Jason Stackhouse, together in one movie. Somebody pinch me.

Directed by Joe Lynch, the film has been announced to release it’s first trailer at San Diego Comic Con (Saturday July 23rd) or everyone to enjoy. As an added bonus for those in attendance Kwanten, Dinklage, Glau and Pudi will all be on hand at the event in support of their upcoming comedic horror style filck. Here’s the 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.

If that didn’t wet your pants remember, Peter Dinklage, that is all.
