First 300: Rise Of An Empire Poster
As Warners touts Gravity & more...

17 April 2013  |  Written by James White

With Warner Bros. in Las Vegas at CinemaCon this week touting its upcoming slate, a lot of talk was naturally around the new Man Of Steel trailer, which you can see here. But it wasn’t all about Superman, oh no. There were new looks at The Great Gatsby, Pacific Rim, The Hangover Part III and more, including 300: Rise Of An Empire, for which producer Zack Snyder has debuted a new poster on Twitter. Take a gander below.

Footage from Rise Of An Empire (which is not, sadly, a biopic of this very movie magazine; that would be much more violent and sweary), was introduced by director Noam Murro, who cautioned the crowd that a lot of what we would see was unfinished. Still, it was fun to see Eva Green in particular play the tough Big Bad.

Alongside the big guns such as Pacific Rim (with Guillermo del Toro showing off the same footage as at WonderCon, boasting plenty of Jaeger vs Kaiju action) and The Hangover III (for which director Todd Phillips mostly showed the latest trailer), there were a variety of other movies on display.

Kidnap drama Prisoners is still shooting, but we got a look at a couple of quick moments with an emotional Hugh Jackman becoming furious about his missing daughter.

There was also some impressive 3D footage from Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity, which sees George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as astronauts trapped in space when their shuttle and space station are destroyed in a freak accident. That one looks particularly astounding, and we want to see more.

Pot comedy We’re The Millers screened some extended moments, and there were some definite chuckles to be had as Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts and Will Poulter play a fake family smuggling pot from Mexico to the US. Poulter in particular looks set to be a highlight in that one, and it’s always good to see Nick Offerman bringing the funny.
