New Knights of Badassdom Blu-ray/DVD Cover Art Revealed

POSTED BY chrisdvanne ON Feb 10, 2014 / 2 COMMENTS


Since the release of the first official movie poster for Knights of Badassdom, we drew your attention to the fact that Summer Glau's name wasn't on top of the poster with her co-stars Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn and Peter Dinklage. Of course, it seemed really foolish to not put Summer Glau's name up top, as she has a large following among the targeted audience, and in many ways would be a huge selling point for a film like this. It's hard to say if it was a simple mistake from the studio who designed the poster, a deliberate intention to not have her name on top or if this is the way things have been negociated at the time they signed their contracts.

And while the Knights of Badassdom Blu-ray/DVD cover design unveiled recently was quite different from the official poster, Summer Glau didn't get top billing either. Thankfully, Knights of Badassdom marketing team have taken it upon themselves to make a top-billing correction. As we had hoped, a new version of the Blu-ray/DVD cover design showed up recently at Amazon.com, in which the cover art itself is the same but Summer Glau's name is now featured on top of the cover art. To some, that may sound like a deep-dive technical detail, but that is very important for an actress who has limited exposure, compared to True Blood's Ryan Kwanten or Game of Thrones's Peter Dinklage for example. Similarly, the Tugg page for Knights of Badassdom is now displaying a movie poster inwhich Summer Glau's name is featured on top and are providing this new poster to the local theaters where the horror comedy is screened.

 I'm personally convinced that the untiring protest from fans and bloggers alike, and the online observations that Summer Glau was a main draw have played a big part in this top-billing revision.

Check out the new Knights of Badassdom Blu-ray/DVD cover art below:

You can pre-order the one-disc DVD for $17.98, or the one-disc Blu-ray for $22.48 on Amazon. As of yet, we don't know if the Blu-ray/DVD will include extras and bonus features.  Pending the DVD/Blu-ray release, Knights of Badassdom hits On Demand & Digital on February 11, 2014.

Unfortunately, not all sites have updated the poster/DVD cover art they're showing. Still, this is a great victory for all fans of Summer Glau.

Yes Indeed the poster/DVD cover looks very smart. yes at last they have realized that Summer Glau is the main attraction. and a change of heart has put a lot of fans thoughts at ease. well I should say given us a few smiley faces. smile
