300 Rise of an Empire

Early in the latest trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire, Eva Green‘s Artemisia hisses something about “the ecstasy of steel, flesh, sweat and muscle, rage… war.” The context of the line isn’t quite clear, but from here it seems to work just fine as a mission statement for the film as a whole. Like the original 300, Rise of an Empire seems to be all about the glory of the battlefield.

Set concurrently, more or less, with the events of 300, the follow-up stars Sullivan Stapleton as a general who wants to unite Greece against the invading Persian forces led by Artemisia and Xerxes the god-king (Rodrigo Santoro). The fights are set at sea this time around, and King Leonidas appears only as a corpse, but otherwise 300: Rise of an Empire seems to deliver more of the same for fans of the first. Watch the newest trailer after the jump.

BalipeoCQAAn58A.png-large

Here’s the new trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire, the follow-up to Zack Snyder’s breakout hit 300. This one has been a long time coming, but now, after everything, the film and the new trailer might have new significance, again thanks to Snyder. The director is looking at this movie’s co-star, Callan Mulvey, as a likely villain choice for Batman vs. Superman. Does the footage below give any clue to how he might be used? Of course not, but those who’ve waited a long time for the 300 follow-up will want to have a look. Read More »

Simon Pegg gun

Most of us know Simon Pegg as a goofball. Even when he’s being serious and kicking ass, he still has incredible comic timing. His latest role, though, sounds like it’ll go against that. He’s headlining an ensemble cast in the Australian crime drama Kill Me Three Times, directed by Kriv Stenders and written by James McFarland. Pegg plays an assassin trying to kill a singer, with the story told from three different points of view.

Among the actors who’ll fill out the other stories are Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Luke Hemsworth (brother of Liam and Chris), Sullivan Stapleton (300: Rise of an Empire), Alice Braga (Elysium), Bryan Brown (Cocktail) and Callan Mulvey (Captain America: The Winter Soldier). Read More »
