Knights of Badassdom stars Ryan Kwanten, Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn, Summer Glau, Michael Gladis, Margarita Levieva, Jimmi Simpson and Danny Pudi. It has been completed for a while now, but behind the scenes shenanigans have meant it has yet to be released.
Hopefully, the fact the trailer has popped up again (first posted back in 2011) means we will be getting to see it soon. Fingers crossed as I really want to see this.
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.
Directed by Joe Lynch.
