Michelle Rodriguez is thieving with honor…
Paramount has revealed its 30-second Super Bowl commercial trailer for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, starring the 44-year-old Puerto Rican and Dominican American actress.
The action comedy, an adaptation of the iconic Hasbro role-playing game, will hit theaters on March 31.
In addition to Rodriguez, the film also stars Chris Pine, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, Chloe Coleman, Daisy Head and Hugh Grant.
The film centers on a band of unlikely adventurers who undertake an epic heist to retrieve a lost relic. Things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people.
Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley directed the script they wrote with Michael Gilio.
The Super Bowl ad treatment is the latest big push for the D&D movie, after the Paramount and eOne pic was slotted into the opening-night position at SXSW, where it will mark its world premiere March 10.
When the first trailer premiered at Comic-Con last summer, Grant noted the film has “a Monty Python sensibility.” More is expected of it for sure than a 2000 movie take on the game, with Goldstein saying “there are characters from the Lore as well which will provide a runway into multiple films.”
Fox’s coverage of the Super Bowl on Sunday begins at 10:00 am PT/1 pm ET, with kickoff at 3:30 pm PT/6:30 pm ET.
