Trailer: Knights of Badassdom
If you weren't one of the lucky ones that were able to attend Comic Con this year, you had to live vicariously through the internet footage like I did. Hopefully, you didn't miss the trailer of a new horror comedy that shows what I've been saying for years: Geeks kick ass.
The movie revolves around a group of LARPers (Live Action Role Playing) who accidentally summon a Succubus from Hell and work together to defeat it. A standard story line that's been used before, complete with underdogs. However, how many heroes have yelled the obligatory LARPiing cry "LIGHTNING BOLT! LIGHTNING BOLT LIGHTNING BOLT"?
The movie, directed by Wrong Turn 2's Joe Lynch, also has an all-star cast that includes Ryan Kwanten from True Blood, Steve Zahn, Danny Pudi, and Jimmi Simpson, just to name a few. Oh, and Peter Dinklage as the midget in armor is too funny.
Watching the trailer, you can't help but get the feeling this is "By geeks, for Geeks" film, and it looks to be a hilarious, medieval ass-kicking good time. There's no release date as of yet, unfortunetly, but we'll tell you as soon as we know!
Time to level up!!
