D&D Movie/TV Here's The D&D Movie Trailer!

"Who needs heroes when you have thieves?" The movie arrives March 3rd, 2023. Here's the trailer! When they said it was inspired by Guardians of the Galaxy, they weren't kidding! We have dragons, owlbears, mimics, gelatinous cubes, quips, and more!



There was also a clip shown at San Diego Comic Con where the party cast speak with dead, and got to ask five questions. Also, apparently, the D&D cartoon characters from the 80s have a cameo!

That doesn't bode well for D&D: HAT, Shang-Chi barely made a profit (roughly 200 million to make, rule of thumb says that much again in marketing, and it only made 432 million), so they really need to up their game on marketing this movie.

Anything released during the first couple of years of the pandemic get asterisks next to their earnings, especially any movies that went to a streaming service shortly after release. If Shang-Chi had come out in 2019, it would have made double that in the theaters.

Okay what was the marketing budget for Shang Chi?
Between 11.2 and 15 mil.

I'm actually not even sure what the argument is anymore; it's nearly impossible to say that the number of Youtube views for one channel, for the first trailer, of a movie that is 8 months out, is indicative of how much trouble that movie might be in.

It seems like a 'sour grapes' argument, I just don't see what would have caused the enmity.

This is as good a thread as any to wonder this aloud: will the movie logo/font be used on products going forward to help tie them together? Or just on actual movie tie in products (which MUST be a thing, right?)

Im betting on side products like a beginners box and board games will have the font to start. Go from there.

I would think that they would keep them separate so movie related/movie specific merch would be easily noted/differentiated.

And there will definitely be moichendise!! They already announced a Gelatinous Cube toy from Hasbro Pulse that is scaled to hold a 6" action figure. So we know at least there will be a range of 6" figures. I'm guessing those will be similar in quality, detail and price point to the 6" Black Series line for Star Wars, since those are Hasbro as well.

I can't believe there won't be a movie tie in starter set. Right?

More important than the actual view count, the trailer is #1 trending video on YouTube. No small feat considering there have been a number of other reveals coinciding with comic-con, most notably another Rings of Power trailer (which I think also looks good).

Movie is definitely going for "Guardians of the Galaxy, but fantasy." Which is a good take, because Guardians of the Galaxy is essentially D&D in space.

One thing I don't think anyone has commented on so far...

I'm pretty sure that's going to be the movie's version of Drow. Pointed ears, likely in the underdark... and yes they're not purple/ebony, but I think everyone with half-a-brain would know having ebony drow is a disaster idea. To be clear, I think it's best they went with the Romulan-evil look instead.

Tatoos on bald head. Thayan, not drow.

Most likely Thayan subordinates to the Red Wizard Lich. Or less piercings Shadar Kai?

I dunno, he and the other guys in the fight are all wearing armor, and the green sword seems very Drow-ish. So could be just Red Wizards, but considering how the RW are supposed to all be human, it's strange one has pointed ears. I'm still thinking these are re-branded drow.
