The fact that Dungeons & Dragons can be transformed into virtually anything at all, including a movie starring Chris Pine, is one of the game’s most appealing features, in my opinion. Do you want to know what that could possibly look like? You’re in luck.
Up until this week, pretty much the only thing anyone knew about the upcoming film Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves was that it was based on the tabletop role-playing game that has become a cultural phenomenon over the past decade. However, Paramount will be providing attendees with their first glimpse at the film that has been in production for a considerable amount of time at the San Diego Comic-Con.
Instead of being a grim and serious adaptation of fantasy work, this reads more like a buddy heist movie populated with well-known monsters. Chris Pine, Regé-Jean Page, Sophia Lillis (who shared that she got into D&D through actual play podcasts like Critical Role), and Michelle Rodriguez star in the film Honor Among Thieves, which was directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.
Fans will have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of Michelle Rodriguez in character on the Comic-Con show floor in a fun tavern installation. Game Night was directed by the same team.

Dungeons And Dragons: Honor Among Thieves: Trailer
Dungeons And Dragons: Honor Among Thieves: Release Date
It is anticipated that Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves will make its debut in theatres during the month of March 2023.
Michelle Rodriguez Gained 10 Pounds of Muscle for ‘d&d’
For the Hasbro eOne-produced fantasy film, the Fast and Furious star put her acting talents to the test by bulking up in the gym.
Michelle Rodriguez was unafraid to work out in a frantic manner.
For her upcoming appearance in “Dungeons and Dragons: Honor among Thieves,” the actress and star of the action blockbuster “Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift” has revealed her fitness routine.
Rodriguez told the crowd at the San Diego Comic-Con, “It was a lot of working out, a lot of protein shakes, and a lot of gas” (via Insider). “Push-ups and sit-ups galore. Lifting weights is a common occurrence. It was easy for me to become frustrated while working on COVID, so I convinced [producer] Jeremy [Latcham] to set me up with a punching bag outside my trailer. With the stressful days, this was big assistance. “Training was a lot of fun.”
I gained a good 10 pounds of muscle as a result, too,” she said. What a blast. Chiseling out the body was a lot of fun for me.
The film, a collaboration between Paramount Pictures and eOne, will be released in theatres on March 3rd, 2023. Among the cast members are Chris Pine, Sophia Lillis, Regé-Jean Page, and Hugh Grant.
Jokingly referring to Vin Diesel as a “Dungeon Master,” Rodriguez said that she was able to “rub it in” her co-face stars because she’ll be starring in a film adaptation of the Hasbro game.
If you’ve ever looked in his wardrobe, he’s got everything you’d expect to find in the closet of a Dungeons & Dragons enthusiast, Rodriguez joked to Entertainment Weekly. As a Dungeon Master, he uses a lot of his skills to make and produce movies.
After Justin Lin, the longstanding director of the Fast and Furious franchise, left the project due to creative differences, filmmaker Louis Leterrier was called in to take over the helm of the picture. Fast X, starring Brie Larson, Rita Moreno, Jason Momoa, Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren, and Cardi B, will be released on May 19, 2023.
It’s the beginning of a two-part finale for a franchise that has been around for more than 20 years now.
If you’re a fan of Rodriguez’s toned physique, you’re not the only one. Taika Waititi’s “Thor: Love and Thunder” MCU episode reveals that Natalie Portman spent 10 months working out for the picture, including several months of training before she began to aggressively add muscle to her frame.
Variety quoted Portman as saying, “I was asked to go as huge as possible.” As a woman, “that’s an incredible challenge—and also a state of mind.”
