eOne acquired North American distribution rights last year, and the studio is releasing the film into US cinemas later this month, and you can request a screening in your local town over on Tugg.
With just days to go before the film begins its limited release stateside, eOne has debuted a new poster for the film, along with releasing a new clip over on Collider.
KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM follows three best friends (Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn and Ryan 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 mythical 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.
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?”
Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn, Peter Dinklage, and Summer Glau lead a stellar ensemble, and you really couldn’t ask for more than that.
Lynch was the one to helm the film to begin with, with Kevin Dreyfuss and Matt Wall penning the screenplay. But after filming finished, the project ran into a lot of trouble behind the scenes, which is why it’s taken so long for it to arrive in cinemas.
The final version is expected not to be Lynch’s original cut, so here’s to hoping that that will debut when the film comes out on DVD/Blu-ray.
Knights of Badassdom will be given a limited theatrical release in the US on January 21st, before being released through VOD on February 11th. No word yet on a UK release date, but we hope it won’t be too long before it finds its way to our shores.
