Chris Pine on audience’s reaction to Dungeons and Dragons
Chris Pine revealed that he has watched Dungeons & Dragons with the audience more than many of his other films and that he loves the experience. The actor said that the audiences feel alive, they are in a great mood, and they want to talk about it. According to Pine, cinema, especially big-budget movies can make people feel alive and escape the unpleasant realities of the world and he feels like his upcoming movie does the same.
Talking about his character of Edgin Darvis in the movie, Chris Pine said, “There’s like a bit of the swashbuckler to this guy in this world, which I love. I’m an ‘80s baby. So all of my references were ‘80s.” The actor shared that his character is a mash-up of several popular films of the ‘80s like Goonies, NeverEnding Story, Indiana Jones, and Pirates.

Furthermore, Pine said that he likes that the movie is honest and sweet. He reflected that being ‘sweet’ has got a bad reputation and that everything needs to be ‘cool’, and said that he is ‘over cool’. “I think cool is super boring. I want something that’s genuine,” he said.

I have no action. All I do is run. Run away from shit,” Pine said. “All these poor schmucks had to do all this martial arts training on the weekends and I was taking walks on the beach. I was reading, caught up on my Netflix. I had a great time,” said Chris.
