Steve Zahn, Summer Glau and Ryan Kwanten get geeky in the first look at The Knights of Badassdom
Posted by: Zack Bruce
I’ve been hearing the words “THE KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM” for awhile now. Yet I had no clue who was in it or what it was really about. Finally with a first look from that upcoming spectacular issue of Entertainment Weekly, I now know what the film is.
The photos show Summer Glau, Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn and Peter Dinklage dressed for some live-action role playing.
In a geek overload, the story goes like this, “Zahn and Dinklage play Eric and Hung, two friends obsessed with Live-Action Role Play (a.k.a. LARPing) who decide their depressed roommate, Joe (Kwanten) needs to join in their fake-armor and foam-sword reindeer games. Director Joe Lynch talks more about Kwanten’s character, “Joe is a wannabe rockstar whose girlfriend (Margarita Levieva) broke up with him, his band is kaput, he lost his job, and his buddies are like, ‘Look you had a bad day, but instead of going to a bar, come with us and go LARPing and escape. Live outside your box a little.'”
The film will debut for the first time in Hall H this weekend during Comic Con.
