The release date was then pushed back to May 27, 2022, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and then to November 19, 2021, to accommodate the release of Mission: Impossible 7. The release date was pushed back to March 3, 2023, earlier this year (current release date).

My argument isn’t that LotR couldn’t make a good TV show, I think it could. But rather than the poster I replied to using the film as an argument that it should have been a TV show, which makes no sense to me. And that by that logic e.g. BttF would likewise make for a great TV show.

Yes, long, detailed stories have time to breathe in the show format more so than in the film format. I would love to see LotR adapted for TV (by the right people etc).
My point is that film is not a great medium for dense novelistic stories in general, bit for short stories (see also, most non-Fantasy novel adaptations versus short story adaptations ever made). Lord of the Rings managed to make it work, barely, by basically breaking the medium (the most accuracies of the Return if the King: "there's no good place to leave and use the bathroom").

That's why it hasn't really been followed up by a huge number of other big screen fantasy novel adaptations, but we are starting to see some action on the small screen.

Honor Among Thieves has the advantage that there is no novel to adapt, and is free to tell a pretty straightforward action story.

D&D Playtester for WoTC since 2012
Was there any leak of the footage showed during CinemaCon's Paramount Pictures presentation by now? I can't find anything online.


I'd say there is a good chance that footage will find its way into a teaser trailer that plays with Thor in a few weeks as they have similar audience demographics.
Oh, yeah, I expect we will start seeing actual ads soon enough. But that promo footage has stayed under wraps so far.
