a very (very, very) ugly first teaser for the fantasy game adaptation

The new adaptation of the famous role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons has unveiled first images, and maybe the first movie of 2000 wasn’t so bad.

The various seasons of Stranger Things have managed to bring many nostalgic licenses up to date, one of them being the famous board game Dungeons & Dragons. And since it would have been a shame to deprive yourself ofan opportunity to capitalize a little more on pre-established successesParamount studios hastened to launch a new feature film project, entitled Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Thieves.

Scheduled for 2023, this new adaptation of the medieval-fantasy game can also be seen as an opportunity for the studio in the mountains to wash his honor, and exorcise the putrid memory of Dungeons & Dragons worn by a Jeremy Irons on acid (but we can easily imagine that he needed it to complete the shoot without wanting to jump out of a window). However, it would seem that Thieves Honor is also well on its way to being a small failure in good and due form.

Indeed, a very first teaser of the footage was broadcast during Comic-Con in San Diego, and as much to say that the images relayed by the Twitter account of The Hollywood Reporter arouse more dread than real geek hype.

Good. What to say ? Where to start ? By Chris Pine’s little fitted jacket and electric lute (star trek)? By Michelle Rodriguez costume (Fast & Furious) which is more reminiscent of those of Warcraft ? Or perhaps it would be a question of dwelling on the paladin of Regé-Jean Page (The Bridgerton Chronicle), Justice Smith’s wizard (Detective Pikachu), or even the druid of Sophia Lillis (That) and his almost cute little slingshot?

Or, let’s think big, and address the most surprising. Earlier in the year, it was revealed by Deadline that the production had set its sights on none other than British comedian Hugh Grant to play the big bad. A casting that is surprising to say the least, especially since his image as a seducer has stuck with the actor since his romantic comedies in the 90s. But after all, why not? If the actor wants to take a big check to wear a dressing gown and sketch a few sardonic laughs, who can really throw the stone at him?

Convinced, Damodar?

Besides, it’s still a bit early to spit in the soup. Admittedly, these images are not very engaging, but perhaps they will delight aficionados of the original game. And then, as much to get used to the idea, since the association between Paramount and Hasbro will, in addition to the reboot, give rise to a series designed to accompany the film sagawhich was also entrusted to Derek Kolstad (the creator and screenwriter of the trilogy John Wick).

We just have to wait patiently for the theatrical release. Dungeons & Dragons, scheduled for March 3, 2023, to make up your own mind. The time until then, for the bravest, to rediscover the mind-blowing nanar of 2000.
