What happened to ‘Knights of Badassdom’? (video)

Last year, the trailer for Knights of Badassdom was shown at a Comic-Con panel to thousands of people and quickly became the talk of the Con. The trailer went viral, the fanboys took to the chat rooms to spread the word.

The hilarious cast includes Peter Dinklage, Summer Glau, Steve Zahn, and Ryan Kwanten. Pair that talent with a Shaun-of-the-Dead-meets-World-of-Warcraft plot line, ‘Badassdom’ had all the makings of a cult classic with one problem, it was never released.

What’s even worse is the lucky few who have seen the whole film claim it’s freaking hilarious. Rumors of the film’s demise have not been greatly exaggerated. ‘Badassdom’ appears to be mired in finishing funds and politics, shelved in the Vaults of Erowid, with nary a whisper of a DVD release on the horizon.

I just wanna see the damn thing personally. You?

    Has The Chive been presented with the opportunity to buy the rights of a badass unreleased movie, and stream it on their website in whichever manner they choose??
    I think so!
    Could The Chive alo become the innovative website that does this type of thing for other badass unreleased movies?
    Did I just open a world of ideas and possibilities for my favorite website?
    I sure as hell hope so!
    Get thinking Chive!

    maybe the Chive should donate the money to get this film moving again

    lol, guess I'm alone when I say this looks horrible.

    • TurboCDN

      No, you are not. Chive seems to have bad taste in movies (Bucky Larson as well).

  • DreamMephisto

    This is freaky…I too saw the trailer a long time ago and about 2 days ago I asked my girlfriend the exact same question. Get out of my head, Chive.
