Chris Pine, Rege-Jean Page, Michelle Rodriguez & More Bring ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Attend LA Movie Premiere

The cast of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves walked the red carpet in Los Angeles for the most recent premiere following the UK film premiere last week.

Chris Pine, Rege-Jean Page and more walked the red carpet at the L.A. premiere on Sunday night (March 26) at Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles.

They were joined by co-stars Michelle Rodriguez, Hugh Grant, Sophia Lillis, Justice Smith, and Daisy Head, as well as directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley.

Michelle Rodriguez took the plunge in a dazzling, lowcut gown as she glamorously led A-listers at the Dungeons And Dragons: Honor Among Thieves premiere in LA on Saturday.

The star opened up about diving into the shoes of her character to, and revealed she had to gain a whopping 15 pounds of muscle for the role.

‘I have never had that much discipline in my entire life,’ she told the outlet. ‘I had to train for three months before, gain 15lbs of muscle and then it’s another five months of maintaining that muscle.’

In order to achieve those goals, Michelle explained, ‘Five days a week, weight lifting, fight training, choreography, it was rough. We did all of that during the pandemic in Northern Ireland if that’s not a labor of love [I don’t know what is].’

The Fast & Furious actress, 44, who recently put on an elegant display at the glamorous UK premiere on Thursday, was joined by other cast members such as Bridgerton star, Rene-Jean Page, at the Regency Village Theatre.

In transferring the beloved role-playing game to the big screen, directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein said they wanted the mix of earnest fun and absurd comedy of their childhood favourites like Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Goonies and The Princess Bride. They were also bored of overly serious fantasy fare. “We’ve seen stoic, humorless portrayals of fantasy characters in almost every other film and television show, and this was our reaction against that,”
Daley told reporters in Paris. The film stars Chris Pine as a reformed thief, with Hugh Grant as a slimy villain and Bridgerton heart-throb Rege-Jean Page in a scene-stealing turn as warrior Xenk, who is completely impervious to irony or sarcasm. Pine has experience with cherished fantasy properties, having played Captain Kirk in the recent Star Trek reboots, but said he was unafraid of upsetting the D&D fanbase.
“One should be wary of taking anything on, especially with the internet now being so angry and loud and acerbic,”.
“But we made a really fun film and we’ve heard we’ve put enough in there for diehards, and even people who have never played are surprised how much they like it.”
 It helps that Dungeons and Dragons is a role-playing game in which players — to a certain extent — make up the story as they go along. “We weren’t beholden to anything other than satisfying certain desires of audiences to see a Gelatinous Cube or an Owlbear,” said Pine, referring to two of the game’s more bizarre creatures.

The upcoming action feature premiered earlier this month at the South by South West Film Festival to positive reviews, and is slated to release in theaters on March 31.

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves centers on a charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers embark on an epic quest to retrieve a long lost relic, but their charming adventure goes dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people.
