Well, nothing wrong with rooting for the bad guys from time to time.
rise of an empire
Based on early reactions,it doesn’t seem like people need any extra motivation to go out and see the new Robocop remake, but just in case...
Noam Murro's pastiche of Zack Snyder's 300 green-screenery looks pretty detailed.
Also Mr. Peabody and Sherman, Zach Braff's Kickstarter movie, indie Blue Ruin, and others.
The whole stylized, violent epic thing has been done a few times and started to feel a bit stale since then, but this looks pretty cool.
In case you didn't yet catch on to who is going to be fighting in the 300 sequel, this trailer will make it clear for you.
The UK release for 300: Rise of an Empire is set for March 7th next year, the same day as in the US. That much we have in common.
Zack Snyder was somewhat too busy with Superman to direct the second 300 film, but he did co-write the screenplay with Kurt Johnstad. The new director is one Noam Murro.
It's a little disappointing that Warner Bros. aren't releasing a trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire with Man of Steel, but there's a new poster at least.
Get to know Themistokles and Artemisia.
I don't know if Rise of an Empire will try to tackle the same ideas as the first 300, but I bet you anything it's every bit as eroticised.
The first images from the 300 follow-up, 300: Rise of an Empire, do look remarkably consistent with the style of the first film.
It's rainy out. And bloody.
