Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is finally hitting theaters this week! And for anyone who has ever picked up a D20, it’s a celebration, because fans are finally getting the adaptation they deserve. The movie is fun, action packed, and incredibly funny, with a lot of heart! And a huge part of that is certainly because of the terrific performances and chemistry of its cast. And within an ensemble of terrific and hilarious stand-outs, one charming performance stole every scene: Regé-Jean Page as Xenk!
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.
NOC Readers! Our friends over at Tremendous Communications, shared this brand new featurette from Universal Pictures’ Fast and Furious 9, entitled, “The Originals“, which celebrates 20 years of the the blockbuster franchise!
F9 sees the return ofJustin Lin as director, who helmed the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth chapters of the series when it transformed into a global blockbuster!
If there was ever any doubt that the Fast & Furious franchise was the most important movie saga in cinematic history, the trailer for its ninth and latest episode (tenth, I guess, if you count Hobbs & Shaw) basically solidifies that The Fast Saga has surpassed Avengers and Star Wars. I mean, just look at this:
Daredevil Season 2 has been up and streaming on Netflix for some time now and if you haven’t watched it, are you okay? Should we call someone? Just kidding. But seriously, go watch it if you still haven’t. It was another successful team-up for Netflix and Marvel after an exceptional Jessica Jones. If you haven’t watched that yet, that’s it, I’m coming over! As I’ve previously written, I recognize my bias and personal history with Daredevil, but in my opinion, especially in terms of tone, the series continues to be the MCU’s masterpiece (ducks).
Hard NOC Life emerges from its winter hibernation, and you can thank Michelle Rodriguez for that. After telling TMZ POCs need to “stop stealing white people’s superheroes,” the actress took to Facebook to say she meant POCs need to focus on creating their own stories.
I don’t usually, and don’t plan to be the guy that writes reactions to other columns. It’s kind of circular and masturbatory and rarely does the work of informing an audience, as opposed to finger pointing across the table at someone else doing the same thing you do. The issue of the diversity in comics seems to be taking on a larger life beyond simple media commentary, however. And we are always 72 hours away from the next event that brings this conversation into focus. For days (and continuing now) it was the topic of what Marvel and Sony should do with their respective versions of Spider-Man. Debates involving Peter Parker’s race, the likability of Miles Morales (or some saying he’s a C-level character), and just how white the MCU films still are currently, have hit the internet at breakneck speed. I contributed to that malaise as well.
The latest such “where we are in 2015 with race and pop culture” test came with the Michelle Rodriguez story over the weekend. Responding to TMZ about the rumors of her being cast for Green Lantern, she responded with the now infamous “stop stealing white people’s superheroes.” Well, as you can imagine, that led to someone Michelle Rodriguez pays, probably telling her how her message was going viral in the way you don’t want things to go viral, which led to her issuing an apology via her Facebook page. It was your garden variety “I’m sorry you’re offended, not sorry for saying something offensive” type of apology that gets passed out in Hollywood as frequently as gift bags at award shows.
Perpetuating stereotypes isn’t just immoral — it’s bad TV. That’s why shows like Sleepy Hollow are so crucial.
When I was seven, I asked my mom if I could dye my hair blond and get blue contact lenses. It’s probably the first serious conversation I ever had about my appearance and all I wanted to do was look like Luke Skywalker. I wanted it so badly. She was appalled and I couldn’t understand why. Star Wars was Everything. There were no Latinos running through the halls of the Death Star, blasting storm troopers. Of course I was caught up.
