Chris Pine and his merry band of misfits battle a supernatural evil in Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.

With a cinematic release just two months away, Paramount Pictures has released a fresh action-packed and goofy-but-fun trailer for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. The trailer has already racked up more than 8 million views on YouTube, which bodes well for the movie’s box office reception.

As we’ve reported previously, Honor Among Thieves is set in the hugely popular Forgotten Realms campaign setting. The film’s official premise is short and sweet: “A charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers undertake an epic heist to retrieve a lost relic, but things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people.”

Said charming thief is Elgin, a bard, who is played by Chris Pine. To defeat the evil that’s been unleashed in the world, he’ll need the strength of Holga, a barbarian (Michelle Rodriguez); courage from Xenk (Regé-Jean Page), a paladin; and magic thanks to Simon the Sorcerer (Justice Smith). Then there’s Doric (Sophie Lillis), a tiefling druid who can transform into a ferocious owlbear, which comes in handy during a fight. Pine envisions himself as the “planner” of the group and the player of the lute. The cast also stars Hugh Grant as Forge Fitzwilliam the Rogue, Daisy Head as the Red Wizard of Thay, and Jason Wong as Dralas. Cast members from the D&D web series Critical Role (which spawned the animated series The Legend of Vox Machina) will also make cameo appearances.
