Comic-Con ’11: ‘Knights of Badassdom’ Trailer is ‘Army of Darkness’ Meets Heavy Metal!

It’s official: The Knights of Badassdom wins the San Diego Comic-Con…

My Twitter feed exploded during the Hall H panel for Joe Lynch’s The Knights of Badassdom. The buzz was beyond positive, so much so that it dwarfed the big comic-themed movies of the Con. Jealousy ensued — at least until a minute ago when the official Facebook posted the hilarious, gory, and most definitely epic trailer that screams “Army of Darkness meets heavy metal.” ROCK ON BELOW to watch the trailer and then tell us what YOU think of the footage…

In this comedic fantasy adventure, Joe (Ryan Kwanten) is a heavy metal rocker who’s just gone through a painful breakup with his girlfriend, Beth (Margarita Levieva). His concerned roommates (Steve Zahn, Peter 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 join forces with other adventurers (Summer Glau, Danny Pudi) to become the real life heroes they have been pretending to be and conquer the unleashed evil.
