A 3 minute clip and a new featurette promote Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, coming to theatres this month
Paramount Pictures has been releasing a steady stream of clips and featurettes to promote their upcoming release Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, which is based on the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game franchise and is set to reach theatres on March 31st. (And got solid reviews from those in attendance at its SXSW film festival screening.) Today we have both a clip and a featurette to share with you, and they can be seen at the bottom of this article.
The clip shows off a 3 minute stretch of the film, with the lead characters and some disposable side characters getting chased through a maze by a tricky beast. The featurette discusses the fact that the story of the film pits our heroes against the forces of evil.
Directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley from a script they crafted with Michael Gilio (who shares story credit with The Tomorrow War and Renfield director Chris McKay), Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves follows a charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers as they embark on an epic quest to retrieve a lost relic. Things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people.
The film stars Chris Pine as The Bard Edgin, Michelle Rodriguez as The Barbarian Holga, Justice Smith as The Sorcerer Simon, Sophia Lillis as The Druid Doric, Regé-Jean Page as The Paladin Xenk, Hugh Grant as The Rogue Forge, and Daisy Head is The Wizard Sofina. Chloe Coleman and Jason Wong are also in the cast.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves was produced by Jeremy Latcham, Brian Goldner, and Nick Meyer, with Goldstein, Daley, and Pine serving as executive producers alongside Denis L. Stewart, Zev Foreman, and Greg Mooradian.
Aside from sharing source material, this movie isn’t connected to the 2000 Dungeons & Dragons movie, which earned the Awfully Good treatment and spawned a couple of sequels (2005’s Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God and 2012’s Dungeons & Dragons 3: The Book of Vile Darkness). But Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves isn’t the only Dungeons & Dragons project in the works at Paramount. They are also developing a Dungeons & Dragons TV series that will run on the Paramount+ streaming service. Eight episodes have already been ordered. Red Notice writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber has written the script for the pilot episode, which he will also be directing.
