This is what a D&D movie should look like.
I own the first two DnD movies on DVD. Hilariously awful. Killer Tom Baker cameo though, along with Richard O'Brien.
Which "acclaimed series" is this movie based on? The Alvin Maker series by Orson Scott Card? I'd not heard that any more of Card's stories were being filmed. If it is based on the Alvin Maker series, it doesn't look like it hews very closely to the source material.
It's not based on the Orson Scott Card story. Liberals can relax.
