New Movies: ‘300: Rise of an Empire,’ ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’
This weekend, we get the sequel to a massive action blockbuster from a few years ago, plus a new animated tale about a boy and his dad, who is a dog.
Another battle in the war between the Greeks and Persians that we first saw in 2007’s ‘300,’ this naval fight sees General Themistocles facing off against Artemisia and the Persian armada. (You can probably expect lots of slow-motion and abs.)
Directed by Noam Murro
Starring Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Rodrigo Santoro
