Chris Pine may not be starring in a Star Trek anytime soon, but he’s teamed up with Paramount to play the bard of an unlikely band of heroes in the Dungeons & Dragons movie. Honor Among Thieves is set to come out this March, and we have a new featurette giving us a better look at this raunchy fantasy world.
If anything, the movie still looks like a big0budget fantasy romp, but the Dungeons & Dragons element comes in when the characters talk to each other like they’re in a modern setting. We don’t have a look at a Dungeon Master or 20-sided dice, but I think the film is going to attempt to capture what it feels like to play a modern-day campaign of D&D.
So far, Chris Pine absolutely shines in the trailers; though he is Captain Kirk in Star Trek, here he’s just a charming wildcard of a bard. The rest of his team also looks like a good bit of fun, with Rege –Jean Page’s character looking to be the ‘Lawful Good’ type who wants to take the game too seriously. Michaelle Rodriguez’s character feels like she’s just there to kick ass.
I can’t wait for the release of this film, and I’m hoping we get a new trailer soon.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
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. 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.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is set to come to theaters on March 31, 2023.
