I’ve never gone LARP-ing or to a LARP tournament. I’ve been into fantasy for a long time, but I just don’t get the appeal of hitting people with foam swords and casting “spells.” That being said, The Knights of Badassdom looks like it’s going to be a pretty great movie. One thing that it already has going for it, is that it actually uses “Men in Suits”, as opposed to horrible looking CGI. We’re happy to share with you some looks at those suits below!

Here’s a synopsis of the film:
“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.”
It stars: Joe Lynch, Peter Dinklage, Steve Sahn, Summer Glau, Ryan Kwanten, and Danny Pudi. The film doesn’t have a release date yet, but we’ll keep you posted as more news comes here to DFAT.
