This isn’t Sparta, it’s SQ, but 300 was such a bad ass action movie, you knew they were going to unleash a sequel to keep the green-screened cash cow going. Although the film is still about 9 months out, the first official trailer is absolutely jaw dropping: all of the violence, details, and dark, ominous tones (to quote Peter Bretter from “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) are back, along with some new faces, to include former Casino Royale “Bond Girl” Eva Green. Also new to the green screen is a completely different battlefield: the sea. Had I realized that prior to watching the trailer, the Marine in me would have been a little discouraged, but after watching the trailer, this thing will still be epicly violent, and yes, epicly is a word in my book. 300: Rise of an Empire lands in theaters March 7th, 2014, and this is one you will not want to miss – trust me.
No, this has nothing to do with the popular video game series from Bethesda (which I could never really get into; first-person RPG’s and me usually don’t mix), but it does look like it will be pretty stellar. On April 19th, Tom Cruise is back on the big screen alongside Morgan Freeman and former-Bond girl Olga Kurylenko in what looks to be a very cool, post-apocalyptic, fight-for-Earth, sci-fi thriller.
No this is not based on the Elder Scrolls: Oblivion role playing game, but it does look pretty awesome if you enjoy a good sci-fi thriller. Starring Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, and former-Bond girl Olga Kurylenko, the film is set well into a post-apocalyptic future on earth as Tom Cruise attemps to figure out where he remembers his past, fights off what appears to be an always impressive alien counter-attack, and put the moves on Olga with his special forces, “operator special”, Yankees baseball hat. Oblivion lands in theaters in less than thirty days on April 19th; enjoy the trailer, and let us know what you think in the comments below!
