Knights Of Badassdom Trailer: I Never Knew LARPing Could Be This Awesome (No, Seriously)

By TK | Trailers | July 25, 2011 | Comments ()


I have no idea how this movie came to be. It looks like it could potentially be abolutely hilarious. It also looks like it should be a midnight screening at a science-fiction film festival. It looks like a movie that should be littered with SyFy channel castoffs and badly-aged 80's and 90's stars.

Instead, The Knights Of Badassdom stars Steve Zahn, Peter Dinklage, Summer Glau, and Danny Pudi... and a few other lesser TV folks. It's the nerdiest trailer ever for what may well be the nerdiest movie ever. A film about a group of LARPers (Live Action Role Players, wherein people dress up and play a sort of live Dungeons & Dragons), who inadvertantly summon an actual demon and are forced to fight for their lives.

It looks pretty goddamn great, even if it looks like it was made for a buck and a quarter.

Take a look:

Fucking Dinklage, man. I'll watch him in anything, but I truly love him here. The only thing I don't get is how you can make this movie, yet you don't cast Felicia Day. That's just crazy, man.
