D&D Movie/TV D&D Movie: Action Packed, Funny as Hell

According to Justice Smith, one of the stars of the upcoming Dungeons and Dragons movie, the film is "action-packed, thrilling, funny as hell".

In a conversation with Collider, Smith said:

[Goldstein and Daley are] incredible. They’re so funny and they have such clear vision. I loved Game Night. That movie is so good and so funny. And it’s such a clear, specific story. It doesn’t try and be anything that it’s not. I think they approached this the same way. I can’t spoil too much but it’s action-packed, thrilling, funny as hell… it’s all of the things and yet it has a clear idea. That specificity is key in storytelling and John and Jonathan do that so well, being like, "This is the story we’re telling but they’re making it enjoyable the entire time." This is me not trying to spoil the movie in any regards. I’ve given away no details.


The movie, which also stars Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Hugh Grant, and Sophia Lillis, is scheduled for March 3rd, 2023.

It’s weird how precious some gamers are about adaptations.

Why pretend this isn’t true?

There is a place for humor in D&D games, movies, comics, etc.

That said, assuming that there is some kind of McLaughlin Group scale of fantasy humor where Monty Python & The Holy Grail is a 10, The Princess Bride is a strong 9, Shrek a hard 8, and Army of Darkness is 7, and Your Highness is a weak 1, I would put The Unmentionable Marlon Wayans Movie That Was Pruned (Thank The Gods) as a solid 1.5.

As I said earlier, humor is realative to the observer.
Exactly so.
 


I didn't hate Your Highness, I'd just like something a little less slapstick and crude for a D&D movie.
I agree totally. Now Id have no problem with a comedy based D&D movie from the standpoint of a group playing a random adventure. The possibilities are endless.
 

Has anyone seen this movie, know where to find it, "the Dungeon Master"? I cant find it anywhere. Think it was available on iTunes briefly but it seems to have disappeared.

I'd be totally fine with a parody of sorts. As long as there are strong characters (as in character development via the script, not PC's - though I suppose it could be both!), and spins a good yarn, it will be huge improvement over past efforts.

If this movie does well, Im sure we'll get 12 more over the next 15 years so Im sure this is in the cards at some point.
