Exclamation points! I love the fact that this trailer doesn’t start with Ryan Kwanten‘s character being normal and doing whatever his character does before diving into the fantasy. This trailer is all second act and context clues.
In Knights of Badassdom, Kwanten plays a young man who needs an escape, so his friends (Peter Dinklage and Steve Zahn) kidnap him, strap some fake armor to his chest, and bring him to a LARPing (Live-Action Role Playing (let’s all pretend you needed that cleared up)) battle.
It sounds like a lot of harmless fun. Until they summon a real demon who proceeds to rip out throats with her teeth.
It goes from break-up story to buddy comedy to horror action film, and who knows where else it could end up? This is a new direction for Joe Lynch after directing Wrong Turn 2, but it looks like he’s got a great road map this time.
