Just watched the new not-Harry-Potter trailer, because I really, really do like magic and fantasy. But they're just blowing up New York again. Important thing can be at stake without widespread destruction, you know. And there is much more to fantasy than just a 'twist' on the usual action film.

This is some brilliant story telling. The bit where they fall is especially good, I was on tenterhooks.
If you haven't come across it yet, it's D&D played by fantastic actors and voice actors, and made accessible and fun even to those who'd never thought of playing before.
