Looking for yet another reason to be excited about this year’s San Diego Comic-Con? How about an opportunity to get the first look at Joe Lynch’s highly anticipated indie film Knights of Badassdom, which will be presented in Hall H on Saturday, July 23rd, at 2:15 PM?
The Knights of Badassdom panel will include a Comic-Con exclusive trailer and a panel discussion/Q&A with stars Ryan Kwanten (HBO’s “True Blood”, Red Hill), Peter Dinklage (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Summer Glau (“Firefly”, “The Sarah Connor Chronicles”), Danny Pudi (NBC’s “Community”), Margarita Levieva (The Lincoln Lawyer, Adventureland), and director Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2).
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.
