FINALLY. We’ve been hearing about Joe Lynch‘s Knights of Badassdom for over two years now. Back in July we got our latest update, but today there’s a release date: Janurary 21st. Only a few weeks after that the film will also get a VOD release on February 11th. Check out the announcement video below.
Here’s its latest trailer as well,
A huge group of dedicated, costumed LARP-ers (Live Action Role Players), dressed like knights, elves & various characters, give up their cell phones and take to the woods for the Central New Jersey Knights of Badassdom Adventure Society, where they are set to re-enact a dungeons and dragons scenario right out of the mythical Middle Ages. After being dumped by his sexy girlfriend Beth (Margarita Levieva), Joe (Ryan Kwanten) reluctantly decides to join Eric (Steve Zahn) and his Larping friends (Peter Dinklage, Danny Pudi) in the woods rather than stay behind and feel sorry for his newly single status. There he meets hot, ass-kicking, intimidating huntress LARPer Gwen (Firefly’s Summer Glau), and finds himself a surreal adventure wilder than he ever imagined when a make-believe wizard casts an all-too-real spell from an ancient book he bought on eBay, releasing an actual demon with a taste for human blood — and souls — that starts systematically decimating the players in this suddenly deadly “game.” Will our guys become the heroes they have been pretending to be before time runs out?
As absolutely everything about this movie, from its premise to cast, looks perfect and hilarious I can imagine Knights of Badassdom will disappoint. Come January 21st, we’ll get to find our for ourselves.
