Knights of Badassdom
Premiere at Icon Festival.
Entertainment One announced two months ago it has acquired U.S. distribution rights
to Joe Lynch's horror comedy, which stars Peter Dinklage, Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn and Summer Glau, committing to release the movie theatrically and on VOD in 2013.
As of today, we don't know if the movie shown at Icon Festival was screened as part of eOne's deal and whether it was Joe Lynch’s original cut of the film, or a re-cut version by producer Wade Bradley.
Meanwhile, here are the first impressions on Knights of Badassdom from con-goers who had the opportunity to watch it before anyone else:
AlonSandler: Just watched it and it was amazing!!!
Omri Evron: "If the trailers make you suspect you might like this movie, I guarantee it will deliver, and then some. I did not see a single person exit the theater who wasn't smiling and gushing with excitement. The movie is low-budget but manages to surprisingly subvert horror tropes. Even someone who isn't familiar with the geeky concepts and cast will enjoy the fantastic and crazy comedy, and those who are familiar will cheer during the movie like everyone at the premiere."
UPDATE: We have collected more impressions from the world premiere of Knights of Badassdom, including exclusives impressions on Summer Glau's role as ass-kicking, huntress LARPer Gwen
Summer Glau brandish a sword the way the geek gods
and 'Knights of Badassdom' filmmakers intended.
We hope more informations will be available in the following days and the movie will be released in the U.S. shortly. Of course we will keep you updated, so come and visit the site regularly.
