What is the Dungeons and Dragons movie release date? Dungeons and Dragons is one of the most influential tabletop roleplaying games, period. And fans have been dying to see a decent fantasy movie based in the Forgotten Realms for years. Following the last box office flop, aka the 2000s D&D movie starring Jeremy Irons, and its equally lacklustre sequels in 2008 and 2012 – finally, we have a new adaptation in cinemas, titled Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.
Directed by the creators of Game Night, Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, the new Dungeons and Dragons movie sees a bunch of adventurers battling puzzles, monsters, and of course, some fire-breathing reptiles on their dangerous quest for a lost relic. But who are these players? What is their mission exactly?
Like any good Dungeon Master, The Digital Fix has done its homework and is ready to walk you through the new fantasy movie. From the new Dungeons and Dragons movie release date, cast, trailer, and more, here is everything you need to know about Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.
Dungeons and Dragons movie cast
The Dungeons and Dragons movie cast is stacked with A-listers, all of which are playing a different class type. If you are unfamiliar with D&D gameplay, during the character creation stage, one of the steps is you picking a D&D class that you want to embody on your adventure, e.g. a Wizard, Cleric, or Fighter.

Is there a Dungeons and Dragons movie trailer?
Yes! In July 2022, a trailer for Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves was released, and it is filled with action, special effects and star power.
In the clip, we see Chris Pine, Regé-Jean Page, Michelle Rodriguez, Justice Smith, and Sophia Lillis as the main gang of adventurers setting out on a new campaign for some lost treasure.
The gang faces off against multiple monsters and puzzles, and we even get a glimpse at the movie villain – Hugh Grant. It is all very spicy, and if the footage is anything to go by, DnD fans won’t be disappointed by the spectacle of it all.
The final trailer dropped just days ahead of the movie’s release date in March.
