LARP Out with the 'Knights of Badassdom' Red Band Trailer

Up until recently, cult films became cult films slowly but surely, slowly but surely earning devoted audiences who would groove to the unconventional style and tone of the material.  Nowadays, though, the definition of a cult film has shifted a bit to include niche films designed specifically to appeal to a very specific audience and sensibility outside the mainstream. 

Mind you, that's not a bad thing, as we get oddities like Knights of Badassdom, a horror-comedy focused on a group of Live Action Role Players who find themselves dealing with an actual demonic succubus.  Director Joe Lynch as his throughly geek-friendly cast debuted a red band teaser at Comic-Con, and said trailer brought the house down both times it was shown.  Now, the Knights of Badassdom trailer is available to view online in all its cultish glory.

Dinklage, baby.  Dinklage.

Joe Lynch previously directed the straight-to-DVD sequel Wrong Turn 2, but he looks like a man unleashed on this material, from a screenplay by Matt Wall and Kevin Dreyfuss.  The cast, who helped Lynch create a crazy-fun Hall H panel at Comic-Con, include reliable ringers like Ryan Kwanten, Peter Dinklage, Summer Glau, Steve Zahn, Danny Pudi, Margarita Levieva, Joshua Malina, and Jimmi Simpson.

Unfortunately, Knights of Badassdom does not yet have a distributor, so no release date has been set.  We'll let you know when some wise soul acquires the film, though.
