300: Rise of an Empire

300: Rise of an Empire: In 2006, Zack Snyder’s combination of color manipulation and visual effects made 300 a revelation on the big screen. The long-awaited sequel, 300: Rise of an Empire, will be unleashed on August 2, and the first stills have been revealed for the movie, which takes place at roughly the same time as the original, as armies battle at sea and other locations. Sullivan Stapleton stars, along with Lena Headey, Eva Green and Rodrigo Santoro. [USA Today]

Hands of Stone: Robert De Niro won an Academy Award for playing real-life boxer Jake LaMotta in Martin Scorsese’s Raging Bull back in 1980, and will soon be seen opposite Sylvester Stallone as a retired boxer in Grudge Match. But he’s not done with boxing yet; he’ll play the trainer for legendary boxer Roberto Duran, who will be played by Edgar Ramirez, in Hands of Stone (which is also the boxer’s nickname) for director Jonathan Jakubowicz.

Dracula: Luke Evans, who played a god in 2011’s Immortals and will be a villain in next month’s Fast & Furious 6, graduates to a starring role in Universal’s upcoming new version of Dracula. He’ll play Prince Vlad, the real-life inspiration for Bram Stoker’s vampire; Sam Worthington and Tom Hardy had been eyed for the project in the past, previously known as Dracula Year Zero. [Variety]

Man of Steel TV Spot: The first TV spot for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel debuted last night during the NCAA basketball championship game, and it is appropriately heroic. Henry Cavill stars as the high-flying, fire-defying, world-changing titular character. Amy Adams, Kevin Costner and Russell Crowe also star; the movie opens on June 14. [Warner Bros. via Collider]
