New “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” Trailer Delights in Derring-do
We’ve got a fresh look at Paramount’s long-awaited Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, and the vibes are groovy. The star-studded epic from directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (the pair behind Game Night) is led by Chris Pine as Edgin, a rakish sort who teams up with Regé-Jean Page’s Xenx, Justice Smith’s Simon, and Michelle Rodriguez’s Holga on an adventure that’ll pack in plenty of action, hijinx, and danger.
Our merry band of thieves has joined forces to retrieve a lost relic that they let slip into the wrong hands, but they’ll learn in short order that in order to survive and succeed, they’re going to have to learn to trust each other and lean on each other’s specific skills. Some of those skills are useful (like Holga’s fighting ability), some, like Edgin’s wit, will at least offer a distraction as they court death again and again.
The new trailer opens with Edgin (Pine) and Holga (Rodriguez) in a spot of trouble—they’re captives and are about to have their heads separated from their necks. The comedic tone in the scene, with Holga doing the rescuing and Edgin doing the quipping, speaks to the vibe this adaptation of the iconic role-playing game aims to strike. Our thieves are fun and funny, and while the stakes couldn’t be higher for them (wanton death and destruction via the greatest evil the world has ever known, etc.), Honor Among Thieves promises to be a joyous romp.
The new trailer, like the last, is set to Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” and once again includes some impressive creatures, huge fight sequences, and a cast that seems to be enjoying themselves immensely. In short, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves looks fun, which is the first thing you want from an adaptation of the most iconic role-playing game of all time.
Joining Pine, Rodriguez, Page, and Smith are Hugh Grant, Sophia Lillis, Chloe Coleman, and Daisy Head.
