movie poster for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. Several people stand in a V formation in front of a graphic that resembles a red dragon on a white background. They are dressed in fantasy type clothing. Chris Pine stands in the front, holding a Lute behind him. To his right is Michelle Rodriguez dressed as a Barbarian in furs with an axe, then Sophia Lillet as a Tiefling - she's dressed in green with black horns sticking out of her red hair. To the left of Chris Pine is Regé-Jean Page, dressed in the silver armor of a Paladin, and behind him is Justice Smith wielding a magic staff.
