Move over Spider-Man — this movie is guaranteed to make fandom explode. Behold The Knights of Badassdom starring Summer Glau, Peter Dinklage, Ryan Kwanten, and Danny Pudi. This is going to be amazing.
While there still isn't a trailer for this gem of a film (directed by Joe Lynch), it was announced today that Kwanten, The Dink, Glau and Pudi would all be on hand at San Diego Comic Con (Saturday July 23rd) to release their trailer to the masses. 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.
