D&D Movie/TV Dungeons & Dragons 3 Movie Trailer

Well, that was fun

Oops. They've gone and done it again. No, I don't know why either. This chapter of Dungeons & Dragons takes you deeper into the dark and fantastic world of this epic fantasy adventure. A noble warrior must battle dragons and demons while upholding his moral code as he covertly joins a group of villains to rescue his kidnapped father from Shathrax, the Mind Flayer, who threatens to destroy the world.

From what I hear - and I really don't know the truth of this - WotC has zero control over these movies. The rights were sold (or licensed for a period of time) and the publishers of D&D have no input at all. It's used as an opbject lesson in other RPG companies as to what NOT to do with your IP licenses. If you know anything about this, feel free to post it below.

...huh... Well.. At least they got the overabundance of pointy tattoos and piercings correct.

Is the gray guy supposed to be a small Goliath? And is the woman supposed to be a shadar-kai?

Are they producing these abominations against WotC's will? I can't imagine WotC would consent to these films being made.

Then again, this is the company that licensed 4e's character builder, Daggerdale, D&D Online, Facebook Neverwinter, MtG Tactics, and MtGO. Maybe they're just terrible at making business decisions.
 



Oh its very real, but has been stuck in development for a year. It was supposed to show on Syfy in december originally.
I have some hopes for this movie, in a so bad its good way, like the first one. But I was disappointed to see the exact same white dragon as in the second movie.

Dear god I was hoping it was a prank. I mean, Syfy did just have "Piranhaconda" so it's not like another D&D movie wouldn't continue the trend of crappy movies.

It's tough to gauge just from the trailer, but it looks like they've once again managed to make a D&D movie that bears little relationship to the core D&D experience: a small, diverse band of characters exploring some underground environment or ruin. The second movie did this to some extent, at least.

There are already a million terrible generic fantasy films. Why make one called Dungeons & Dragons unless it represents the game as actually played? I don't want to see generic human bad guys, huge pitched battles, or love interests. I want to see five PCs fighting a displacer beast in a cave somewhere. I want to see the characters perform a full cavity search on their slain opponents to recover every last copper piece. I want to see the Shrine of the Kuo-toa or the Slave Pits of the Undercity. And I want to see the PCs bickering over minutiae.

[MENTION=32442]Kel[/MENTION]vor - so its never coming out? I wish they'd use some of the characters from the last movie. I didn't it it was as bad as the first.

Wow. That was awful. Looks like that one dood didnt get his stickybomb on the Panther before it went off.

I did not bother watching the second one, nor will I this one.

I think Wizards was involved in this movie -- they mentioned it frequently in their promo material for Book of Vile Darkness, and I also recall seeing mention of a contest to have a character generated by one of their customers included in the movie. I had forgotten about all that until I saw this thread.

There are people who really like the first two movies, so I can see why they are still producing that kind of crap.

EDIT: Ha! Called it! Evidence 2 posts underneath mine!

This just goes to show two things:

A.) A company can choose to take the rights to a property/name, slap it on an unrelated project, and call it a day...

AND

B.) Games usually lead to horrible movies.

But can inspire some great musicals...

Though, to be honest... There is one property that would make an excellent survival/horror film...

I'm probably going against the consensus here, but I loved D&D 2. It was exactly the right level of cheap and camp for ironic enjoyment - I hope this one is the same - most Syfy movies are, let's face it!
