Sound the horns and prepare thyself for a most glorious tale of battling knights, spell-casting wizards, fair maidens and one blood-thirsty demon from the netherworld in KNIGHTS OF BADASSOM. Starring Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”, The Station Agent), Steve Zahn (“Treme”, Dallas Buyers Club), Ryan Kwanten (“True Blood”, Dead Silence) and Summer Glau (“Arrow”, “Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles”), this 2014 theatrical release called “a blast and a half” (Max Nicholson, IGN), marches onto extras-loaded DVD and Blu-ray editions on April 1 from Entertainment One. Cans’t thou handle it?
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?
Co-starring Danny Pudi (“Community”), Maragrita Levieva (“Revenge” Adventureland) and Jimmi Simpson (“House of Cards”, Date Night), the blu-ray and DVD editions conjure up some magical extras including interviews with Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn and director Joe Lynch, a Behind -the-Scenes featurette, a Summer Glau: Hottie Montage and the San Diego Comic Con Panel.
KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM was produced by IndieVest Pictures’ Mark Burton and Matt Wall, and by Kevin Dreyfuss. Daniel J. Heffner, Ketura Krestin, Rizwan Virk, Rich Cowan and Mike Elizalde executive produced.
