Looking forward to this redbox rental, probably better done then Unicorn City as well.

EOne plans a day-and-date U.S. release in theaters and on VOD.

Did someone forget to fill in a placeholder, or is this some terminology I'm not aware of?

The red-band trailer.

I saw this ages ago and had given hope on every seeing it.

Day and date means that it's going to be released on Video On Demand cable) the same day it's released in theaters.

I've been wondering about this film for a long time. Figured the original release was pushed back so it wouldn't be associated with the swamp ass that was "Your Highness", but then read about the film change stuff that they touched on in the article.

With Dinklage being an awarded (and awesome) actor I had hoped this film would get fast tracked. There were some amusing stories about the cast doing D&D sessions and I'm hoping some of that makes it to the DVD release.

Verily, I can't believe I never knew about this. Holy shiat does it look awesome! The biggest setback to anything other than a straight to DVD release would be whatever that soap opera thingy Dinklidge is somewhat famous for being in, or at least it's network, paying to keep it fairly low key.

Skr: the swamp ass that was "Your Highness"


It wasn't "swamp ass". While it's not  good, it's the sort of movie that really brings the nostalgia for me. At some point, every 13 year old DM thinks to himself, "Man, this campaign is really awesome. It'd make a great movie!"  Your Highness is that movie.

a bunch of friends of mine are extras in this movie!

it's great that I'll finally be able to see more than the still photos.

I heard that this was supposed to be the butchered version, and not the intended 'director's cut'. I am looking forward to this, but I have a feeling we'll be seeing the bad version of this film.
 
2013-07-25 08:44:25 PM
Which version?

Therion: Which version?


Exactly. Word was the producer fired everyone else, stiffed the investors by transferring the rights to a new company (which the original investors could buy shares in if they wanted, if they put yet more money...) and edited the movie himself cutting it from 90 minutes to 70. The director had a website where he told his account, but that site has gone dead and even Wayback only has a single page.

/God help him if he cut any of Summer's scenes....

I was pretty excited...until I read all that stuff about this version versus the directors cut. Major bonerkiller.

I would really like to read more about this, if someone has links.

Yeah, but when is Violet & Daisy going to be released?

Smeggy Smurf: Remember, first ward then summon


Only noobs ward and summon.

Veteran players ward, summon, contingency a dimensional anchor, and have an antimagic field covering an area one five-foot step backward.  And a high-initiative party-mate standing in the field holding a rope that's tied to their waist, for the truly paranoid.

//May have spent most of my high-school games intentionally making trouble for the GM.

The original page on badassdom.com where the director gave his side of the story is gone and I can't find any archive of it, even on Wayback, so maybe he had to take it down.

But there are a few accounts of the story.

The centaur rump beer cooler was probably the only thing good about Unicorn City.

The version of the movie that I want to see has every scene cut that isn't Glau.  Don't even really need any bridging dialog or music.  Just her.

Flint Ironstag: Oh and an article from Bleeding Cool


Thank you for all that information. What an interesting/ depressing story for film fans. Maybe a movie in itself?

It's kind of unclear what happened with this flick but I think it's safe to assume that the problems aren't creative, as the producer is claiming, but rather have to do with dollars.  You produced a relatively inexpensive film by Hollywood standards thinking the biggest star was Summer Glau, who was guest starring on television shows at the time, and two of the actors have since become white-hot.

So this little flick that may have seen a run in art-houses is a sure-thing to be booted up to the big-leagues and make oodles of money, regardless of quality.  We all know the business of film is sleazy but it's depressing to see that the independent side can be just as sleazy as Hollywood suits.

Very true on the actors who are now big names, but why cut twenty minutes from the film?

And as a writer it does somewhat amuse me to se a director shocked, SHOCKED, to be cut out of the loop and replaced. Welcome to our world buddy....
