Dec. 5 (UPI) — The board sport Dungeons & Dragons has been successful fans since its debut in 1974. Michelle Rodriguez and Chris Pine star within the newest film model, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, which is coming to theaters in March. This week, a new poster and behind-the-scenes featurette have been released.
Per the official synopsis: “A charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers undertake an epic heist to retrieve a misplaced relic, but things go dangerously awry after they run afoul of the wrong individuals. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves brings the wealthy world and playful spirit of the legendary role-playing sport to the large display screen in a hilarious and action-packed adventure.”
This is the sixth live-action film in the franchise, which has included actors Thora Birch, Jeremy Irons, Lucy Lawless, Bruce Payne, Justice Smith, Kiefer Sutherland, Michelle Trachtenberg and Marlon Wayans. The latest film adds Hugh Grant and Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page to the franchise.
The new poster includes many of the film’s actors with Pine and Rodriguez featured prominently. In the behind-the-scenes featurette, the actors speak concerning the D&D storyline and what it was like to work on the movie.
“Dungeons & Dragons is that traditional hero’s journey where we have to defy dragons and evil wizards so as to save the world,” Pine says within the video.
Rodriguez, who is conscious of slightly about heroics as one of the fixtures of The Fast and Furious franchise, says each character approaches the battle in an individual way.
“It’s about discovering your own hero within,” Rodriguez says. “And each character has their very own model of that journey.”
