Shows like Stranger Things and Community have great odes to the Dungeons & Dragons culture, but we’re set to get an official movie this March starring Chris Pine and Michelle Rodriguez. As we’re getting closer to the release, Paramount has dropped a whole new trailer for the film, and it looks even more like a modern D&D campaign.

Though we’ve had fantasy movies before, it looks like Dungeons & Dragons will set itself apart by embracing the modern humor of players today. While there are some characters like Justice Smith’s who seem to be taking the game seriously, we have some players like Pine and Rodriguez who just seem to be having fun with all the adventure.
There has been a lot of debate on how a Dungeons & Dragons adaptation should be handled, but I think Honor Among Thieves has decided to do a mix of embracing the lore seriously while offering a taste of what it’s like to play a modern campaign.
It looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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 debut in cinemas on March 31.
