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 has occurred to be that Monty Python and the Holy Grail is pretty much the opposite of Guardians of the Galaxy.

In GoG "the DM" takes it seriously and the humour come from "the PCs". In MPatHG "the DM" throws a series of extremely silly encounters at "the PCs" - especially Graham Chapman's King Arthur - who attempt to treat them seriously and with gravitas. The joke isn't the silliness of the encounters, it's King Arthur's reaction to them.

Plus it clearly features a DM struggling to come up with NPC names on the fly...

"Some call me... Tim!"

...and to find an appropriate mini for the current encounter.

"Where is it - behind the rabbit?"
 

If they're going to do an actually distinctive soundtrack, they should go all out and do the whole thing in Bardcore style. Or else get some musicians who go nuts with traditionally orchestral instruments, like Lindsey Stirling, or the 2Cellos guys.

Lindsey Stirling with the 4 Tenors singing who wants to live forever is EPIC!


They give it a Romantic Gothic Vampire vibe, with Lindsey Sterling have a bit of a sunlit Fey quality in contrast to the 4 tenors damned immortals of darkness yearning vibe, very Romantic, even if it's 4 vs 1.

Amazing song. So he'll yes to all 5 of them doing music for D&D movie and add Enya for good measure.

@Paul Farquhar It wasn’t a joke. Any research into the psychology of roleplaying will show you that it’s worth taking seriously, regardless of whether your game is serious or comedic in tone. Whether you want to look at it as collaborative storytelling, immersive catharthis, or exploration of the self and various other ideas and aspects of our complex internal lives, roleplaying is not inherently silly.

Unless you perhaps use a definition of silly that is much more broadly encompassing than any I would use. Are sports inherently silly? What about writing speculative fiction?

There is absolutely no reason to

It's silly in the same way all activities adults engage in for leisure - sport - music - dance etc are silly.
