If you haven't heard of it yet, Knights of Badassdom is a film that has been unfortunately tied up in post-production and distribution Hell, floating around for three years without being picked up (I know; I've waited this long). But now that that's finally been sorted and the movie is headed for (limited and VOD) release, you can finally check out the first official clip, courtesy of Collider:

The Knights Of Badassdom follows three best friends and dedicated LARPers (Live Action Role Players) as they take to the woods to reenact a dungeons and dragons-like scenario fresh out of the mythical Middle Ages. Trouble arises after they unwittingly conjure up some serious evil in the form of a blood-lusting Succubus, from the pits of hell.

Fantasy and reality collide on the Fields of Evermore in an all-out epic battle of make-believe wizards, demons and assorted mythical creatures. Their courage and friendship is put to the test as they attempt to vanquish the evil they have summoned. Will the group prove to simply be foam sword-wielding LARPers, or true "Knights of Badassdom?"

How on earth does a film with that cast not go to wide release? Starring (Game of Thrones, X-Men: Days Of Future Past), (True Blood), (Firefly, Arrow), and (Treme), and considering the subject matter, you'd think there'd be a big enough built-in fanbase to justify a wider release. I mean, I thought the world had already agreed we'd watch Dinklage in anything ever. But such is the studio game.

Knights of Badassdom arrives on VOD on February 11, but there will be TUGG screenings in multiple cities throughout the U.S. starting January 21.
