By Josh Wilding - 1/19/2014







After its victory over Leonidas' 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes' army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land.


STARRING:

Sullivan Stapleton as Themistocles
Eva Green as Artemisia
Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo of Sparta
Rodrigo Santoro as King Xerxes
Hans Matheson as Aeskylos
Andrew Pleavin as Daxos
Callan Mulvey as Scyllias
David Wenham as Dilios
Jack O'Connell as Calisto
Andrew Tiernan as Ephialtes
Yigal Naor as Darius

I thought this was going to be a prequel, then I saw the preview before The Hobbit.
Prime - 1/19/2014, 1:09 PM
Will Eva Green be naked?
ManCalledSting - 1/19/2014, 1:13 PM
Prime: With any luck, but there's plenty of movies she is naked in.

What a waste of a great song.

GodzillaKart - 1/19/2014, 1:26 PM
@Josh: "Critically acclaimed"? Um...wouldn't it be more accurate to say something like "sequel to Snyder's 300, which received moderately positive reviews, primarily for its technological achievements as its simplistic story was routinely panned"?
GodzillaKart - 1/19/2014, 1:26 PM
@Bravado: Wow. That is one good image.

And yes, 300 sucked and this looks worse.

The 300 will be avenged on March 6 in my country :p

LOL! Check these out! Some of my favorite quotes from critics about 300!

"300 has one-dimensional caricatures who talk like professional wrestlers plugging their next feud." - Ebert

"A muscle-magazine fantasy crossed with a video game and an Army recruiting film." - Denby

"It might have been one of the great all-time mad, bad movies but for one thing - it's just sooo boring." - Johnston

"As to this pumped-up spectacle's other aims, it's anybody's guess: selling gladiatorial chest-beating as beefcake erotica?" - Fear

"Despite a cracking central premise and outstanding visuals, 300 ultimately leaves you feeling more gutted than some of the disemboweled soldiers on display throughout the movie." - Rawson-Jones

"Asscrack ugly" - Croce

Terrible

@Bravado: Thanks, dude!

Haven't watched 300 but I've heard numerous times that it's a badass movie.
MrNiklander - 1/19/2014, 1:56 PM
@Godzillafart stop your farting
No one Cares
DrunkenNukem - 1/19/2014, 2:00 PM
looks better than robocop to me
gaikinger - 1/19/2014, 2:02 PM
I have to say after seeing Gravity and The Hobbit in IMax 3D I really have renewed appreciation for the medium. That being said, although I love 300 and like what I've seen in the previews for this sequel, It looks far too dark for 3D and will see it in 2D.
MexicanSuperman - 1/19/2014, 2:04 PM
@Godzillafart, you are just mad because you are a fatass and jealous of how built the guys in 300 looked.
SaxoWolf - 1/19/2014, 2:14 PM
interesting
GodzillaKart - 1/19/2014, 2:38 PM
@MexicanSuperman: Keep my fat, greasy, smelly, dirty ass out of this! My flatulent, pimply posterior has nothing to do with the fact that 300 was a shitty, shitty film.
GodzillaKart - 1/19/2014, 2:39 PM
@niklander: You cared enough to post that image. Thank you. xoxo
GerMan - 1/19/2014, 2:54 PM
thank god it´s rated r
Ranger14 - 1/19/2014, 4:15 PM
It's been so long since the first one I can't say that I have the least bit of excitement for this one.

...and what the hell does this have to do with GOTG or CAP2? Trolling again... *facepalm*
GodzillaKart - 1/19/2014, 4:33 PM
@1to10youLose: Who cares how much money it makes? The real issue is that we are being served up another stinking pile of dog shit...ala 300. Baby Jesus is weeping as this crapfest makes the world a slightly worse place.
Ranger14 - 1/19/2014, 4:39 PM
Lol...Perhaps YOU should read the thread. No one mentioned anything remotely close to Marvel until you did. You love making stuff up...gotta say you do have a great imagination.
GodzillaKart - 1/19/2014, 4:39 PM
300 is garbage made for mental midgets, and the only thing it shit on is its own face. Terrible film based on a terrible comic based on a really cool part of history.
GodzillaKart - 1/19/2014, 4:40 PM
And yes, IM2 is infinitely better than 300, which was terrible.
marvel72 - 1/19/2014, 5:04 PM
looks visually stunning but i do have my doubts about the actual movie being any good.
marvel72 - 1/19/2014, 5:12 PM
I can smell the fear?

Can you....

That stale stagnant hint of fear,FEAR their is the slightest possibility this might make more money then either GOTG or CAP2?


To defeat fear you must embrace fear,you must bask in the fear of other men?
[[BB,LMFAO]]

@ 1to10youloser

i believe what you can smell is the shit you talk all of the time,there must be a breeze wherever you are & its blown the smell back in your face.
marvel72 - 1/19/2014, 5:21 PM
@ bravado

thanks for that image of eva green.
gaikinger - 1/19/2014, 7:18 PM
Godzillafart- Really? You hated 300? What a joyless sort of bunghole you must be.
GodzillaKart - 1/19/2014, 8:00 PM
@gaikinger: I'll have you know my bunghole knows much pleasure...however, movies as shitty as 300 darken the prospects of bungholes everywhere.

It really was a very stupid movie made for very stupid people.

I love watching dumb films when I'm hungover...and tried to give 300 a second chance during a special raging headache. No go. To dumb to be tolerated.
GodzillaKart - 1/19/2014, 8:03 PM
I'm trying to think of another film that was more dumb than Transformers. I'm sure there is one, but I can't think of it.

I have realized that half-men seem to respond to this movie like a defibrillator to the balls...yelling "Sparta!" until their boners just start to materialize.
GodzillaKart - 1/19/2014, 8:04 PM
I'm responsible for about 50% of the comments on this thread...because most people don't give a crap about this shit show.

Glad my hate can do some good! Haters gonna hate...for Jesus!
Jobin - 1/19/2014, 10:04 PM
Pacific Rim was pretty dumb. Awesome effects, dumb movie. (BTW fart, I am a HUUGE Godzilla fan).
GodzillaKart - 1/19/2014, 10:29 PM
@Jobin: Well, Godzilla is awesome, and PR was pretty dumb.
lolken - 1/20/2014, 8:34 AM
300 was good at looking cool, and being violent. I enjoyed it but think the squeal is being forced.

I have to admit, I loved the Slow Motion Leonidis* fight scene ( the one with the shield bash )
Jobin - 1/20/2014, 9:17 AM
This sequel is a squeezed as TAKEN 2.
