Knights of Badassdom Heads to DVD/Blu-ray

After a blink-and-you-missed-it theatrical run (mostly driven by fan demand/request), Knights of Badassdom is headed to blu-ray and DVD on April 1st.

The movie was arguably the breakout hit of San Diego Comic Con 2011, with the panel generating much buzz and anticipation. Unfortunately, the movie got bogged down in distribution issues and left many of us wondering if we’d ever get to sit back and enjoy the LARP-y goodness.

Fear not! You’ll be able to add Knights of Badassdom to your collection on April 1st. The movie follows 3 friends on a LARPing adventure that starts out innocently enough, but turns deadly when they accidentally summon a crazy Succubus from the depths of hell. The movie stars Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Steve Zahn (Dallas Buyers Club), and Summer Glau (Firefly).

The DVD/Blu-ray will be packed with extras, including the full SDCC 2011 panel that started it all. You’ll also get cast interviews and a behind-the-scenes featurette. Check out some stills from the film below:

I, for one, am absolutely thrilled this film is finally getting the distribution it deserves. Had it come to theaters in a more conventional way, I think it would’ve done fairly well, with us geeks taking over the world and all. As it is, it’s sure to develop a real cult following.

It’s already available in digital format from multiple sources, so check it out while you wait for the DVD. Trust me, it’s hilarious!

Head on over to Amazon and pre-order it today.
