The first poster for the Paramount Pictures live-action adaptation of Dungeons and Dragons, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, has been spotted at the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con event. Shared via Rotten Tomatoes, the promo was spotted while walking the floor of the Convention Center. This first official Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves poster is beautifully comprised of mythical beasts from the lore of the iconic game alongside the silhouettes of our main players — and all depicted in stunning scarlet and black.

Chris Pine Calls Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves ‘Game of Thrones Mixed With a Little Princess Bride’
While little is known about the direction of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, star Chris Pine has offered some insight into the tone of the table-top game adaptation.
“Oh man. Well, what I will say is we had a hell of a fun time making it. There was a lot of laughs,” the actor said of his experience filming the project before making an intriguing comparison. “The way that I’ve been describing it, it’s like Game of Thrones mixed with a little Princess Bride, just a smidge of Holy Grail; it’s somewhere in that ballpark. It’s a lot of fun. It’s got a lot of thrills. It’s poppy, it’s eighties heartfelt, there’s a bit of Goonies in there. My character, he’s the ultimate party planner. I think it’s going to be really good. I mean, who f—ing knows, but I think we got a good shot and John and John are killer guys. They know comedy and they know heart and we had a great cast and we had a good time making it. And that’s all you can ask for.”
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is scheduled to be released theatrically in the United States on March 3, 2023, by Paramount Pictures. The studio is expected to reveal even more from Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves during a Comic-Con Hall H panel later today.
