There was a Dungeons and Dragons film in the early 2000s, but it was a failure. It only made $33.8 million out of a budget of $45 million. The critics also destroyed it as it only got 10% ratings to score in rotten tomatoes. They said that the third time is the charm, but this second attempt has all the elements of a triumphant epic.
This newly re-branded picture has tremendous potential because its cast is more endearing, and its chemistry and affinity are sharper. I tried to learn the mechanics of this tabletop game, but I still don’t get it, but this film at least gives me an idea about the lore of this pop culture phenomenon. Paramount pictures are so confident about the success of this movie that a television spin-off is already in the works.
Now this movie looks like something the larpers and dungeon masters will love to watch. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves has the potential to redeem the franchise.
Synopses:A charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers undertake an epic heist to retrieve a lost relic, but things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves brings the rich world and playful spirit of the legendary roleplaying game to the big screen in a hilarious and action-packed adventure.
