The independent film Knights of Badassdom will be coming to the San Diego Comic-Con. The film will be presented in Hall H on Saturday, July 23 at 2:15 PM.
The Knights of Badassdom panel will include a Comic-Con exclusive trailer and a panel discussion/Q&A with stars Ryan Kwanten (HBO’s “True Blood”), Peter Dinklage (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Summer Glau (“Firefly,” “Serenity,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”), Danny Pudi (NBC’s “Community”), Margarita Levieva (The Lincoln Lawyer), and director Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2).
In this humorous fantasy adventure from IndieVest Pictures, Joe (Kwanten) is a heavy metal rocker who’s just gone through a painful breakup with his girlfriend, Beth (Levieva). His concerned roommates (Steve Zahn, Dinklage) kidnap him to their LARP (Live Action Role Playing) gathering, where he enters a realm of fantasy escapism in which pretend knights, elves, and barbarians clash with foam weaponry on a mock battlefield. When Joe’s “sorcerer” roommate (Zahn) inadvertently summons a deadly succubus that takes Beth’s seductive form, bloody reality crashes down upon their fantasy world. Once LARPers start to turn up dead, the make-believe wizards and warriors must become the real life heroes they have been pretending to be in order to conquer the evil that has been unleashed.
