Paramount Pictures is trying to drum up interest for their D&D movie with a short creatures video and a final trailer.

Clearly by creatures they really mean monsters. The big fish-like critter at the 4-5 second mark interests me most, because it’s the least media sexy and I can’t think of what it could be. Or why they’d include it! But I could’ve done without the brain monsters, though—urgh, blech.
The final trailer really sounds like a puff piece, though:

I’m perfectly willing to be entertained by a D&D movie that turns out to be better than my expectations, but “Best movie of the year”? Please.
More exciting is the 3-minute “Let the Games Begin” clip:

That’s more like it, even if it doesn’t tell us why our intrepid adventurers end up on the arena, let alone competing with at least two other groups.
Looks like Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves opens today, if it already hasn’t in your neck of the woods. I really hope it’s at least a little good.
Hey, look! We found a thing on the internet! We thought it was cool, and wanted to share it with you.
