Paramount was at San Diego Comic-Con to give fans a first look at “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” at its Tavern Experience, which includes a series of motion posters showing the cast (via ComicBook.com) . They reveal Chris Pine’s Bard, Michelle Rodriguez’s Barbarian, Regé-Jean Page’s Paladin, Sophia Lillis’ Druid, Justice Smith’s Wizard and Hugh Grant’s Villains. All six posters show the gang posing to tease what to expect from their characters, but Dungeons & Dragons players on Reddit aren’t thrilled with the first images from the film.
Redditor u/Idletalker joked that the posters looked like reality TV promotional material, saying, “What the reality competition show intro is going on here?” Meanwhile, u/realblush added, “Love the cast, hate the look.” Finally, u/Cthulusdream pointed out that the film is playing it safe with the choice of characters, saying, “All humans and elves, boring! Ouch.
John Francis Daley accepted Twitter in August 2021 to confirm that filming on Honor Among Thieves has wrapped, so it’s possible a trailer is on the way soon. Hopefully the first footage will resonate with longtime fans a lot better than these motion posters. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves hits theaters on March 3, 2023.
