I'm just saying, it's kinda pointless to make tie-in gaming products to promote the movie.
I think Reynard is arguing the opposite, that there should be a tie-in movie gaming product to promote the game
not have the game promote the movie.
As in get that audience who liked the movie to come check out the game by having a boxed set where the artwork is all movie stills and the adventure is somehow tied into the movie's plot without either spoiling the movie's plot or being superfluous and superficially connected to the film (which is what I meant yesterday when I was saying I think I know what a movie tie-in Starter Set would look like and it would likely be kind of meh IMO.)
I'm actually not sure that it would work, but my cynicism largely comes from the comic book side of things where comic book films just don't move the needle on getting people to buy comics, regardless of whether or not there's an actual movie tie-in. There is some overlap, but it's generally two different audiences.
does have a point that if someone goes looking for a D&D game at Target after the movie they are going to find something branded "Dungeons and Dragons" on the shelves that is actually a good product for new folks, so I'm not sure they actually do need something with movie stills on it to get the folks who might be in that overlap but just don't know it yet.)
