The long awaited Knights of Badassdom has finally gained distribution thanks to Entertainment One Films. After a panel in Comic-Con back in 2011, many moviegoers were excited to see how well Peter Dinklage would be at LARPing. The Blu-ray and DVD of Knights of Badassdom is set to hit shelves on April 1. You can find the list of special features the home video will contain after the break.
Now my LARPing experience goes no further than that of Role Models, but if Knights of Badassdom can reach the strange, awkward level of humor the aforementioned film has, than this should be a delight. Plus you really can’t say no to anything Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) touches, especially since this puts him in Medieval clothing in the modern world. The production is clearly very low budget, but the actors look like they had a lot of good time making the film. And you can’t say no to Summer Glau in a sci-fi/fantasy film.
Here’s what you can come to expect in the way of special features for the release of Knights of Badassdom:
- Cast Interviews
- Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes
- San Diego Comic Con Panel
- and More
For those unfamiliar with the plot of Knights of Badassdom, here is the synopsis:
Knights of Badassdom follows three best friends (Dinklage, Zahn and Kwanten) and dedicated LARPers (Live Action Role Players) as they take to the woods to reenact a dungeons and dragons-like scenario fresh out of the Middle Ages. Trouble arises after they unwittingly conjure up some serious evil in the form of a blood-lusting Succubus from the pits of hell. And as fantasy and reality collide on the Fields of Evermore in an all-out epic battle of make-believe wizards, demons and assorted mythical creatures, their courage and friendship is put to the test as they attempt to vanquish the evil they have summoned. Will the group prove to simply be foam sword-wielding LARPers or true “Knights of Badassdom?” Art thou ready to find out?
Knights of Badassdom hits Blu-ray and DVD April 1, 2014.
