Hey, they’ve got blue cloaks instead of red ones this time! For some reason, I feel like I should be sneering at the very idea of a sequel to 300, Zack Snyder’s hyper-stylized sword and sandal epic, but I dunno. I like Eva Green (though she doesn’t look Persian to me, guys), and the movies look consistent in their appearance…and it’s not as though 300 was some brainy masterpiece or anything. File this one under “I’ll see it eventually.”

300: Rise of an Empire comes out March 7, 2014.
