From a slew of new images from 'The Amazing Spider-Man' to the first look at Colin Farrell in the upcoming 'Total Recall' remake, Entertainment Weekly isn't screwing around with their Comic-Con coverage this year. As if all that wasn't enough, it looks like they've also got themselves the first images from the upcoming fantasy comedy, 'The Knights of Badassdom.'
If this one's flown under your radar and you have no idea what in the hell "LARPing" is, here's the scoop as told by the scribes over at EW:
[Steve] Zahn and Dinklage play Eric and Hung, two friends obsessed with Live-Action Role Play (a.k.a. LARPing) who decide their depressed roommate, Joe (Kwanten) needs to join in their fake-armor and foam-sword reindeer games.... So Joe dives deep into the world of geek, only to have Eric inadvertently perform a real spell from a creepy old book he bought off eBay. Turns out the book was penned by demons, and a succubus is now roaming the campsite where hundreds of people dressed as knights, elves, and warlocks are playing make-believe.Also starring Summer Glau and Danni Pudi, no word yet on a release date, and it's directed by Joe Lynch whose only other directorial credit is the direct-to-DVD 'Wrong Turn 2: Dead End,' we're just hoping the finished product ends up being as awesome as the title.
So hit the jump to see the images for yourselves
The last time we saw LARPing in a movie was with 'Role Models,' and since we still think that was the funniest movie of 2008, we've definitely got our hopes up for this one. Hard to beat this stellar cast, too.
So what do you guys think of these 'Knights of Badassdom' pics?
