AccessReel Trailers – Knights of Badassdom

This looks fun. And it should only help to increase the power and profile of the excellent Peter Dinklage (GAME OF THRONES). The movie is director Joe Lynch’s second feature. The movie has not been officially released yet, but has been doing the festival circuit for several months. The KoB crew (Lynch, Dinklage, Kwanten, Glau) was recently at Comic-Con International spruiking their flick, which is where the trailer below was premiered. AccessReel will let you know when KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM is coming to Oz. More details after the jump.

What’s it about? Here is the official synopsis.

 In this comedic fantasy adventure, 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 join forces with other adventurers (Summer Glau, Danny Pudi) to become the real life heroes they have been pretending to be and conquer the unleashed evil.
