At San Diego Comic-Con, Paramount unveiled the first images and trailer for its upcoming film, Black Holes and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. The trailer for the movie has already been released and the cast and crew in San Diego showed behind the scenes images and several clips and also explained more about the movie.
During the behind the scenes clip, Chris Payne, who plays a lute-playing poet, says on the visuals that the film is a great emotional work about a group of disparate people who encounter crazy events. Rene Jean Page, who plays a paladin, states that the film has a certain kind of humor, and this quality is established in a short scene with Page and Pine. The clip also features glimpses of Northern Ireland, where the movie was shot, and plenty of dragons, monsters, and a giant fish that the cast later joked had its body covered in jelly.

In another clip, the cast, which includes Pine, Paige, Michelle Rodriguez, Justice Smith and Sophia Lillis are looking for a special hat. They must use a spell to revive a skeleton in the graveyard and can only ask him five questions or they will die and never come back. This clip perfectly captures the tone of this film directed and co-written by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daly.
Goldstein and Daly know how to mix humor and action, and we have seen this ability in the script of "Spider-Man: Homecoming" as well as the series "Game Night" in 2018. This adventure in the cemetery is not what the team expected. They dig up a corpse, ask it if it participated in a certain battle, and then randomly throw out four more questions.
In these conversations with other corpses that In this battle there was a soldier with drooping eyes, a man who died coming out of the bathroom, and a man who answered all their questions, we meet the main characters answering their other questions by asking things like What is your favorite food" and "Do you like cats?" They waste but the clip goes back to the main decisive battle and shows some action scenes. In these scenes, a dragon flies above the characters and throws fire at the warriors.
The second clip is more lively and most of its scenes can be seen in the first trailer. In the second scene we see Hugh Grant at the top of a huge column in the middle of a large church. His character promises the audience a wonderful gift and then descends from the same pillar, which is much taller than he expected.
Then we see Lillis, Pine, Rodriguez, and Smith on the battlefield of the Colosseum, alongside two other teams (one of which bears an interesting resemblance to characters from the 80s animated series Black Holes and Dragons) of a They pass through the great labyrinth. Some of them are hunted by several beasts while passing through the labyrinth. The main team members try to get out of this predicament alive and find various weapons. As soon as Rodriguez is about to pick up one of the weapons, he is attacked by a strange creature with a giant tongue that tries to pull him into its mouth. Fortunately, Lilis interrupts him in time. Finally, the clip ends with another member of the team being sucked into a gelatin cube, and Lillis goes to his rescue.
These two clips and the trailer promise an interesting work from Goldstein and Daly, which combines It has humor, action and great actors. This sense of humor was also evident during their interview at Comic-Con. The actors and producers started the conversation by discussing the reason for their entry into the project. Daley said he fell in love with the game as a teenager: "I used to play it on the set of Freaks and Jakes." Pine mentioned that he has a nephew who is a fan of the game and his whole family loves it, and now Pine himself is starring in a movie of the same name. "In Jersey, you definitely spend your teenage years playing Black Holes and Dragons," Rodriguez said. Lillis also said that he started playing the game in high school and listened to podcasts about it. In one of the funniest moments of the conversation, the cast joked that Grant had always been a fan of the game, to which Rodriguez added, "I think you're mistaking it for another game. you have taken "Maybe you're right," Grant laughed. Grant also joked that he had tried to come to Comic-Con before, stating, "We tried to come here for Sense and Sensibility, but they turned us down."
The actors and crew also explained about the film, and Pine said that a certain energy like Spielberg's work is felt in the script and witness a fluid, floating and lively story. we will be Daly also admitted that there are dozens of monsters and strange creatures and dozens of different spells in the film that are in line with the game's story. It was also said that at least one of the famous players of the game will have a brief appearance in this film.
In response to a question about the possibility of some of the characters of the "Stranger Things" series, Goldstein and Daly said: "If this If the work becomes a franchise, we can see all kinds of monsters in it." Grant also stated that he hated all the scripts, but he found the script to be funny and have a "Monty Python" feel to it.
Page seemed to really enjoy the world of black Holes and dragons. Takes. He stated: "I am having the best time of my career. I had to use a sword to survive, isn't it interesting?! Paige was asked if her character is a lawman or an outlaw. "If I answer that question, I'm giving away part of the story," Page said. You will understand when you see my character." The actors also answered a question about their resemblance to the game characters in real life. "I look like Leroy Jenkins," Page said. "I'm like witches because I like to disappear and reappear whenever I want," Rodriguez said.
They were also asked which film they would like to have a crossover with. Page joked that he would like a crossover made with "intelligence and emotion." Pine said he would like to see a crossover with "Top Gun" starring Tom Cruise. Rodriguez gave a hilarious response, saying he'd love to see a crossover of Black Holes and Dragons with Isaac Asimov's space-themed book Foundation.
But the real star of Comic-Con was Grant, who has consistently been cast makes the producers and the audience laugh. When asked what her inner animal is, Grant joked, I think I'm a tiger. "Everyone calls me by this name." In response to the question of whether he took anything from the filming set or not, he said: "For years, I always take some extra equipment home with me. A lot of them are in the black hole now.
Judging by the clips and the relationship between the cast and crew, it looks like Black Holes and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is going to be a lot of fun. When asked if they were open to making a sequel, Rodriguez replied, "Absolutely. It's clear that the team loves this project and wants to make it the best it can be."
