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.

I still really hope they have a character die early on only for the group to find another character played by the same actor who, without much reason at all, also joins the party.

Yes, or a character who randomly disappeares for a bit (due to missing the session) then pops back up with no one mentioning it.

Or I guess in the online era someone who keeps losing voice connection or everything they speak has a ton of background noise coming in with their lines.

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.
Thankfully, I have not had a single D&D group descend into Monty Python's Holy Grail since junior high. Even back then, it did not go over well and the group broke up rather than continue to play with the DM.

Or wandering through the dungeon, staring at their smartphone.

Hopefully they didnt rely too much on the funny part. Humor sprinkled in here and there is good but if this is an action packed comedy that has me a little apprehensive. "Funny as hell" is relative depending on who you ask, so we'll see.
Yeah, humor here an there is good, but an action packed comedy? No, thanks. I enjoyed both the Princess Bride and The Gamers, but they are not what I want in a D&D movie. If the movie is an action packed comedy, I hope it bombs.

Not to get your hopes up, but the writers do comedy ensemble flicks for a living.
