All right, all you Dungeon Masters and cosplayers out there, after a handful of images and not a whole lot else, it's time to check out the first trailer for the movie that might even be bigger than Leeroy Jenkins himself.
In a nutshell, 'Knights of Badassdom' is about two friends who decide to cheer up their other friend by forcing him to join in their LARPing (Live-Action Role Playing) adventures filled with slaying imaginary dragons and waging magical wars with other "knights" and "wizards." Realizing that he doesn't have much choice in the matter, the guy goes along with it, but then things get serious when one of his friends accidentally opens up an otherworldly portal and unleashes a real-life demon onto the playing field. With their fantasy now a deadly reality, the friends find actual weapons and band together to save their world.
It's directed by newcomer Joe Lynch, it stars Steve Zahn, Peter Dinklage, Ryan Kwanted, Summer Glau and Patrick Stewart, and since we've all daydreamed about being a knight at some point or other in our lives, we are very much onboard for this one.
Hit the jump for the slightly NSFW trailer.
God, we hope that this movie will finally give Steve Zahn his due as one of the funniest and criminally under-appreciated guys out there, but regardless, we can't wait for when this comes out later this year.
What do you guys think of the first 'Knights of Badassdom' trailer?
