Knights of Badassdom

"Thou has been recruited to fight at the epic battle!" One of our favorite Comic-Con panels yesterday was for an upcoming indie comedy called Knights of Badassdom about a group of LARPers (Live Action Role Players) who inadvertently summon a deadly succubus during the middle of a big fantasy battle and must fight her for real. The cast includes Ryan Kwanten, Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage, Summer Glau, Steve Zahn, Community's Danny Pudi and Margarita Levieva. Even if you think LARPing is lame, I'm sure you'll think this looks awesome, it just looks funny as hell and entertaining as—well—hell, too. Enjoy!

Watch the first official trailer for Joe Lynch's Knights of Badassdom via YouTube:

Live-action role players conjure up a succubus from hell by mistake and must deal with the consequences.

Knights of Badassdom is directed by up-and-coming American indie filmmaker Joe Lynch (@TheJoeLynch on Twitter), who previously has only directed Wrong Turn 2: Dead End. The screenplay was written by first-time screenwriters Matt Wall & Kevin Dreyfuss. IndieVest Pictures developed the film, but as far as we know, it doesn't have an actual distributor or release date yet. For more information or to follow for updates, visit the official Facebook or Twitter. You can read our coverage of the Comic-Con panel here. Look good?

    i am absolutely SOLD on this one - it looks hilarious!
  • Looks funny, but saw a lot of it there in that mini-film. Still going to watch it.

    This looks pretty cool, especially on account of Steve Zahn and SUMMER GLAU, but it could benefit from Joe Lo Truglio.  He did that L.A.R.P. thing really well in Role Models.
  • Lamar
    Have to, have to, HAVE TO see this man. Danny Pudi in it only adds more epic win in this.
  • Richie
    That's a fantastic cast. Can't wait to see this
  • I almost fell of my chair at the end when he is screaming lightning bolt.

    Everything looked good up until the supernatural aspect of it kicked in... :/ Id still watch it, and it looks funny, but I think they should have just gone with just the LARP concept IMO.

    'The Three Amigos' genre is alive and kicking.

    Definitely my favorite panel on Saturday... my husband, who was not very enthusiastic about sitting through a bunch of panels, was laughing so hard at this one. We can't wait to see the movie!
  • SavageHawk
    nothing you have presented in the article including the trailer tells me that this will be naught less than pure geek pleasure!  So I dare say this is targeted specifically for my mentality level.  SOLD!
