But there’s still no word on a release date for this Summer Glau, Ryan Kwanten, and Peter Dinklage-starring film.
Yikes, here’s hoping “Holliston” co-creator and “Chillerama” contributor Joe Lynch’s “Knights of Badassdom” doesn’t suffer the same fate as “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane,” another well-regarded indie horror effort that languished in a release date limbo for ages both theatrically and on home video. The promise of the film remains even more evident in this new trailer released over the weekend.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
