Paramount Pictures has released a new featurette and poster for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, the upcoming big screen adaptation of the hit board game from directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley.
While fans have had their reservations about the movie, it looks like an enjoyable ride that's not taking itself too seriously...which is part of the problem for some. There may well be a version of Dungeons & Dragons that's a full-blown fantasy blockbuster in the vein of The Lord of the Rings, but this looks commercially friendly...and pretty fun and dumb.
In the featurette, we get to see how the cast embarked on this adventure and are treated to plenty of new footage from Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves along the way. As for that poster, the A-List cast is highlighted, and short of the movie being a total disaster, we have to believe this take on the game has all the makings of a hit.
What longtime fans will make of this one is hard to say, though with tens of millions of players worldwide, they're likely to play a key role when it comes to making or breaking this adaptation.
In the movie, a charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers undertake an epic heist to retrieve a lost relic, but things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people.
The impressive cast includes Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, and Hugh Grant.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves brings the rich world and playful spirit of the legendary roleplaying game to the big screen in a hilarious and action-packed adventure, and it's set to arrive in theaters on March 3, 2023.
