On July 21, the official trailer for Paramount’s Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves was released. Already, fans are ecstatic and critics are intrigued. Less than 24 hours after the release, the trailer became the #1 trending video on YouTube worldwide.
The movie tells the tale of “a charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers undertaking 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.”
Chris Pine stars as said charming thief alongside his band of adventurers Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, and Sophia Lillis. The trailer also features creatures Dungeons & Dragons fans know well. We see an owlbear, a mimic, a displacer beast, a gelatinous cube, and, of course, dragons!

Shows like Netflix’s Stranger Things and Critical Role’s The Legend of Vox Machina on Amazon Prime exposed people across the world to this nearly 50-year-old tabletop role-playing game. Recent fans, long-time fans, and soon-to-be fans of D&D will all surely find something to love in this adventurous movie.
