At the end of this month, one of the most charming surprises to hit cinemas this Spring will be making its debut with Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. Now, it’s a hard thing to adapt a role-playing game with passionate but somewhat niche audience. How do you satisfy fans and players while appealing to mainstream audiences who have never played the game? Well we at The Nerds of Color would love to offer opinions that represent both perspectives: a player’s perspective, and a non-player’s perspective. This review will be from someone who has played before.
Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is coming! But hot off the early screenings at SXSW this past week, reviews are flying and the movie is looking good as gold! So with buzz like that, it’s no wonder Paramount is bringing the adventure to fans everywhere even sooner!
We’re counting down to the debut of Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves! The anticipated adaptation of the most famous RPG of all time is hitting theaters March 31. But the surprises keep on coming!
We’re nearing the end of February, folks, which means we’re about one month away from the journeying to the world of Dungeons and Dragons when Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves hits theaters March 31, 2023. And to prep you for your quest, Paramount has released a special feature unleashing all the creepy, powerful, insane creatures you’ll meet along the way!
Paramount had a huge weekend at the CCXP convention in São Paulo. They rolled out a massive panel for the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves film, and brought with them a huge group of stars including Chris Pine, Regé-Jean Page, Hugh Grant, Justice Smith, and directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, and producer Jeremy Latcham. While we weren’t present for the panel, Paramount did unveil a new poster for the film, and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
As you already know, the upcoming, highly anticipated 2023 release, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves has taken over San Diego Comic-Con. But in addition to the festive tavern offsite experience, the film’s directors and cast, including Chris Pine, Rege-Jean Page, Michelle Rodriguez, Hugh Grant, and Sophia Lillis were on hand in Hall H today to debut the new trailer and poster for the film.
Happy Comic-Con everyone! It’s been three years since we were able to indulge in the allure of exclusives, panels, and offsites. But at long last, we are back! And our first stop: the highly anticipated Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves offsite experience.
Roll for initiative! Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is coming. Paramount Pictures’ highly anticipated film is hitting theaters March 3, 2023, and fans everywhere will get their first glimpse of the film this year at San Diego Comic-Con.
When you’re into comics, science fiction, role-playing games and the rest, people will make assumptions about you. These assumptions are that you’re a nerd (not in the liberating sense that we use here), a geek, a wimp — somehow different or less than the folks who consume and participate in mainstream popular culture. And this applies to white people. When you add race to this, you get doubly othered quite a bit of the time. You like “white shit” and you’re soft. In many cases, you become an ass-whooping magnet. We won’t get into how all of this stuff is now mainstream or how fantasy sports leagues are about as Dungeons and Dragons as you can get, just minus the swords, gold, and magic.
And it is D&D that I want to talk about here. I’ve played for over thirty years. While I am not participating in an active campaign, I would in a heartbeat if I found one that interested me.
Black Panther is having a moment. And it’s looking evidently clear that 2016 will officially be the Year of the Panther.
Not only is the character being primed for his big screen debut next summer in Marvel Studios’ blockbuster Captain America: Civil War — played by Chadwick Boseman — setting the stage for his own cinematic feature two years later, the comics version is going to get some shine as well since Ta-Nehisi Coates, one of the country’s greatest and most important writers, is making his superhero comics debut on Black Panther #1 next spring.
I mean, why else would a new comic creative team be exclusively announced in The New York Times?
[I did not include the Riddick-verse video games or animation as I am unfamiliar with the material.]
In 2000, a little movie named Pitch Black dropped in select movies houses. I had no idea what it was about, but the posters and the one trailer I saw intrigued me. I was also a lightweight David Twohy fan based on his 1996 alien invasion film, The Arrival. So, me and my boy Corey walked into the theater without any expectations. When the film ended, we sat quietly through the credits. We said nothing to each other until the lights asserted themselves. I looked at him, and he looked back and almost in unison we said some variation of: ‘What the hell did we just see?’ Without any verbal confirmation, we sat in the theater and watched it again.
I’ve told this story a million times: when I was young, my father kept me off the streets and saved much needed money buying me the toys I wanted by getting me a library card and teaching me to walk to the Franklin Avenue library, and there began my love of books and stories.
What I’ve written less about is the books I gravitated towards: books about mythological monsters, Greek gods and heroes, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, Lord of the Rings, my older sister’s Elfquest collection and X-Men comic books. And the secret of many a nerd of color from the ‘hood: my lifelong devotion with role playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons, and Vampire: the Masquerade (making vampire fixations embarrassing long before Stephanie Meyer).
