The review embargo for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves seems to have been lifted, and there’s been a lot of positive buzz surrounding Paramount’s take on the long-running tabletop franchise.
Just in, we have a final trailer for the movie that shows off all the film’s critical praise. Check this out:
There has been a lot of praise thrown at Chris Pine who seems to be the very backbone of the movie, despite just playing the role of a bard. You also have to love Michelle Rodriguez’s barbarian character who plays off really well with Pine’s party leader.
While fantasy properties like Lord of the Rings like to take the lore very seriously, it looks like the movie is going to be borrowing its tone from the actual game, with friends going on adventures, and luck deciding a lot of the outcomes. I don’t know if we’ll get a fourth-wall break with friends on a table playing dice, but I hope this is a start of a series of D&D adventure films that really flesh out the world.
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.
Watch out for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves when it comes to cinemas on March 31.
