Sometimes the 20-sided die just doesn’t roll your way. And on occasion the best laid plans of mages and men blow up in your face. But the one thing you can always control during a session of Dungeons & Dragons is who you play with. So long as your campaign features a collection of people you like spending time with, any play through will be a magical night. That’s also true of movies. Good characters always make for a good time. And that’s what the newest trailer for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is promising. It focuses on the personalities of its party, and the dynamics of the group should make for one entertaining campaign.
And it also doesn’t hurt that the movie features an army of the undead, a myriad of monsters, and plenty of D&D Easter eggs for longtime fans to hunt down.
This Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves trailer is exactly what all of our own sessions are like. An impossibly handsome human leads our party of engaging and well-developed characters through an incredible story of intrigue and chaos. Okay, well maybe not all of our sessions are like this. But we try!
As for the film, it’ll see its party trying to find something it never should have taken in the first place. Here’s the official synopsis from Paramount Pictures:
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.
Directed by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley (who also wrote the screenplay with Michael Gilio), the film stars: Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, Chloe Coleman, Daisy Head, and Hugh Grant. It comes to theaters on March 31, 2023.
Well, that’s assuming they don’t have to reschedule. If they really want an authentic D&D experience someone will need to cancel the day before. But hey, that’s okay so long as it eventually happens. Well, so long as it happens with people you like. Or, in this case, who’s in the movie.
