Knights of Badassdom will be released on DVD and Blu-ray, according to a statement at the bottom of the page for Joe Lynch's horror comedy at movie event planner platform tugg :
"Host a screening or buy a ticket in a city near you and receive a discount for KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM on DVD or Blu-Ray at a major retailer. Screenings begin January 21st, so make sure to sign up today!"
This has yet to receive an official confirmation from eOne, who has acquired the US ditribution rights to Knights of Badassdom, but it would be in line with its release strategy: make the movie available on Tugg in January, then a VOD and digital download/streaming platforms (such as Amazon, iTunes and Netflix Instant) release in mid-February. Then a release on DVD and Blu-ray, at a date to be determined.
That means all LARPers, Geeks, Nerds, Pen and Paper Gamers, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles fans and Browncoats will be given another opportunity to watch Knights of Badassdom, including those living outside the U.S. (if you can play a Region 1 disc).
And hopefully the discs will contains extras such as outtakes, deleted scenes,...

Hey what's the virtual Jack Sparrow for?
I'd love buying it actually, if only bcs it involves Summer in it. But if I can't buy, I don't mind "stealing" it.
(My opinion on the matter is long and wide, so I won't drop it here. But inshort I don't urge anyone into piracy, but if it is the only option.... otherwise it is called segregation, discrimination, depravity? :P )
Great news that we will be able to see Summer in hi-res. Because the only thing better than Summer, is Summer in uhd.
What's important is that this shit is finally getting released and that Summer isn't cut from it, what many of us here feared. With that said, we can wait and see if this benefits Summer for more roles and stuff.

For some years, there are strong regions codes restrictions in some countries for DVD market, this for copyright reasons.
But I bet there will be a Zone2 release :
. region code for UK is in Zone2 and UK really matters for distributors
- Zone2 area is pretty huge (EU, Middle East), with a high potential of people who may be interested by buying the DVD/Blu-Ray. Of course, there are other points for this (dubbing and subtitles, sound versions, etc.).
Maybe there will be only a Blu-Ray release, and no DVD. This depends on
other factors (costs, copyrights, distribution, etc.). Everything is defined in distribution contracts...
The question remains open about the extras, making-of, deleted scenes, etc.
One more reason for a Zone2 release : there are among the cast some names who are famous in the Zone2 area.
So let's be optimistic and let's wait for a while...
