Looks so bad that it is awesome
can not find a copy of what all was on the website, but did find this quote from itTwo years ago, Wrong Turn 2 director Joe Lynch got to show off his horror comedy Knights of Badassdom in Hall H at Comic-Con. The film follows a group of LARPers (Live-Action Role Players) who head out into the woods, end up doing a real spell, and accidentally summon a blood-thirsty demon. As the demon starts picking off LARPers, three friends (played by Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn, and Peter Dinklage) have to find a way to defeat the demon. The film also starred Summer Glau and Danny Pudi. The trailer looked hilarious, but then all news on the movie went quiet. It turns out, shady dealings from behind the scenes had taken the film away from Lynch, and that Wade Bradley, the owner of the production company IndieVest, had “made his own 70 minute cut.” Lynch set up a website explaining the whole ordeal, but that site has now been taken down. Entertainment One (eOne) has now picked up the feature for theatrical and VOD distribution, but when reached for comment on Twitter about the deal, Lynch only responded “Till I get a call… #NMC”. I’m assuming “NMC” means “Not My Cut”. I’m still interested in seeing the finished version, but it’s a depressing end for what looked like a promising feature.
Knights of Badassdom currently has no release date, but it will be released day-and-date in theaters and on VOD.
old trailer“Mr. Bradley set about editing KoB independently and in violation of his contract with director Joe Lynch per the Directors Guild of America Creative Rights Handbook. The most recent edit is roughly 70 minutes long and includes significant changes to the original story and concept.”
I have no idea why Summer Glau is in it, but the rest of the trailer seemed contextually relevant to the overall premise.
The Lightning Bolt part at the end of the Trailer cracked me up so hard, awesome oldschool scene.
Im sure there was a post on FOH predicting this movie was fucked the second it casted Summer Glau. I never look into curses but holy hell everything that girl has been linked to has been royally fucked

Your justification in life is merely self serving. Imagine if society was 100% people like you, fuck living in that place.

The real question is, which version is being released? There's the director's version and then there's the producer's "OMG I FUNDED THIS MOVIE SO THIS IS MY CUT" version. The director's version is apparently decent, the producer's is apparently terrible.
For me the real question mark is how, after winning the casting lottery, is this move not out? I mean you cast a not so well known guy in a little production, and by the time you are done, the guy becomes very well known and loved for another work of his... tcha-ching! I guess there are in no hurry because it's not like people will forget Tyrion any time soon, but why wait on cashing in your winning lottery ticket?
what i read, Brady head of the production company spent all the money and didn't have enough to finish it. there were some anonymous claims that he had ripped off some investors, but he denied it and said no one had ever made any offical claims against him. the director, Lynch posted on twitter the other day that it wasn't his cut.
Bit of a pisser, seems like a really fun movie. Can't support asshattery though.
I've been wanting to see KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM since it was announced. It's got Steve Zahn doing the "lightning bolt" thing, it's got Peter Dinklage, currently on a career high with his work on GAME OF THRONES, and it just looks fun as hell. That online trailer sold me. What can I say, I'm a geek for this kind of stuff. One of my most anticipated movies for SXSW this year is ZERO CHARISMA, a D&D-inspired comedy. Sure, it's nerdy as hell, but we live in a world run by nerds, geeks, and LARPers. Embrace the mystery.
The cast and director of KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM appeared at Comic-Con 2011 in Hall H to a very enthusiastic crowd eager to see their movie. Since then... nothing. The trailer got a lot of interest online, but then not a peep. It's been screened a few times, but never for journalists or the public. I remember talking to Joe Lynch at SXSW last year, excited for the movie, and he seemed excited to show it, but he was curiously silent on when it would finally make its way to the public. And now we know why.
According to www.badassdom.com, the movie has been taken away from Lynch and given a different edit, which would seem to violate the contract signed by Lynch and the production company. Wade Bradley, the CEO of IndieVest, the production company for KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM, is planning to screen the new edit this week. What once was a 90+ minute movie under Lynch's cut has become a truncated 70 minute version, and thus far Bradley has refused to allow Lynch to finish his work and edit the movie to his vision. Bradley has claimed that the movie went vastly overbudget (although he approved every spending invoice) and, if the anonymous writer of the Badassdom site is accurate, removed members of IndieVest who hepled promote and support Lynch's version of the film.
We here at Ain't It Cool News always support the director's vision over the producers, and if the report is accurate Lynch's movie is essentially being held hostage. Furthermore, the time is fast approaching when no one will be able to do anything about it. Once Bradley sells KNIGHTS TO BADASSDOM to a studio for distribution, Lynch will not have his final edit. Joe Lynch deserves better, the cast deserves better, and we as movie fans deserve better. Artists whenever possible should have first say over how their films are seen, and hopefully they'll win out this time.
In all fairness, it's impossible to know which edit is the best one.
It seems like this sort of public squabbling would be a career killer. More for the director but for the producer too. I don't know if it is, just seems like it (sh/w)ould be.
unknown which edit, but comes out Jan 21st and then Feb 11 VoD
Pretty sure the version coming out is not the director's version
some rips out, 85mins long with credits
Got it on iTunes, was hoping it would have been a bit better but I had low expectations so enjoyed it all the same. Peter Dinklage stole the movie, as expected.
Watched the first twenty minutes or so before I had to head to work. Pretty good so far, if a bit silly. Peter steals his scenes, and plays a stoner/nerd like it comes naturally lol.
Really curious to know which version eventually got released. Or really, what in the fuck happened to this movie? The original trailer came out at the height of the Game of Thrones frenzy and it seemed like it had the chops to be a huge release.
Dinklage needed more scenes, and it should have had more normality. The first 1/3 is solid. It would be much better without the supernatural stuff that dominates the rest of the movie.
It transformed from "Role Models" to "Your Highness", and I didn't dig it.

As I understand things, it is the studio chopped version, not the directors cut.
Who the fuck cares about that midget when that goddess of woman is in this film....
ending was fucking awesome.
Is it funny? funny the entire time? or just a little funny and some T&A tease to keep you watching... I suppose I will seek out a torrent if it is decent- or awate and elusive directors cut?
Depends on how much time you have on your hands. It is worth watching, butif you have something else to do, do it.
I thought it was horrible. The first 1/3rd-1/4th was decent, but then it ventures into complete "wtf am I watching?" territory.
Not very good overall, and no T&A in the version I watched. I do appreciate certain nods though, like the two opposing kings being King Diamond and King Kerry. But not so good, unfortunately.
I have taken shits that were more interesting then this movie.
Contrary to the general opinion, i really liked this movie. Honestly i expected a completely different sentiment from this board, hehe.
The Knights of Badassdom as expected from the movie title is stupid, simple fun. The only thing missing was even more Metal and (what the hell) maybe Jack Black.
It's a mix of general cheese and stupidity from a 80s B-Movie with a enjoyable cast and a really cool Heavy Metal Soundtrack from the phenomenal Bear McCreary who also did the legendary Soundtrack for Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead or the Metalocalypse Rock Opera. It's like a few Metalhead RPG fans got together and made a movie just for fun.
Why expect more?
This movie was god awful, I like 3 of the, heck 4 of the 4 main characters and wish I hadn't bothered.
yeah, really good idea for a movie and great actors but it just fell flat, very little funny happened and it tried to be too serious too often.
I compare it to this is the end - knights had "real" actors just reading lines and apparently weak writers and director, whereas this is the end is a stupider idea but all the actors were comedians so they improv'd a ton of funny shit and the whole movie worked out so much better.
This movie was almost entirely without funny. Seriously this movie fucking sucked ass.
Should have added mcbride to the cast. It could have been LARP You're Highness
