1. FILM: 300: Rise of an Empire

300, the 2006 hit action film, is debuting its next chapter: 300: Rise of an Empire. Based on the graphic novel series by Frank Miller that brought Greek history to life, Rise of an Empire follows Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) as he unites his people to battle invading Persian forces led by the vengeful god Xerxes and the war leader Artemisia, played by a delightful Eva Green. Directed by Noam Murro and showcased last week at L.A. Italia for the work of Italian producer Gianni Nunnari, 300: Rise of an Empire is sure to follow its predecessor in its celebration of the male torso amid the war-torn landscape of the ancient world. 300: Rise of an Empire opens in theaters today. Watch the trailer below. — Daniel Reynolds
