In addition to participating in the True Blood panel on Friday, Ryan Kwanten will be presenting his new film, Knights of Badassdom, at Comic Con this year.

Knights of Badassdom is a humorous fantasy adventure starring Joe (Ryan Kwanten) as a heavy metal rocker who’s just gone through a painful breakup with his girlfriend, Beth (Margarita Levieva). His concerned roommates (Steve Zahn, Peter Dinklage) kidnap him to their LARP (Live Action Role Playing) gathering, where he enters a realm of fantasy escapism in which pretend knights, elves, and barbarians clash with foam weaponry on a mock battlefield. When Joe’s “sorcerer” roommate (Zahn) inadvertently summons a deadly succubus that takes Beth’s seductive form, bloody reality crashes down upon their fantasy world. Once LARPers start to turn up dead, the make-believe wizards and warriors must become the real life heroes they have been pretending to be in order to conquer the evil that has been unleashed. Summer Glau also stars.

The panel for Knights of Badassdom is set for Saturday, July 23 at 2:15PM in Hall H. The presentation panel will include a Comic-Con exclusive trailer and a panel discussion/Q&A with stars Ryan Kwanten (HBO’s True Blood, RED HILL), Peter Dinklage (HBO’s Game of Thrones, STATION AGENT), Summer Glau (Firefly, SERENITY, The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Danny Pudi (NBC’s Community), Margarita Levieva ( THE LINCOLN LAWYER, ADVENTURELAND), and director Joe Lynch (WRONG TURN 2).
