To start the New Year, every day in January we will be publishing another section of our 300 Greatest Films Ever Made List. This list was compiled over a two-year period using a variety of criteria, including--popularity, critical response, box office take, influence, originality and awards won. Thanks to all the people who helped in making this list by giving their feedback over blogs and hubs during the period it was being compiled. And now, on with the list…
As production for the upcoming 300 sequel/prequel, now titled 300: Battle of Artemesia, starts heating up it now looks like Warner Bros. has their eye on who they wish to play the lead role.
Lose a director, gain a location. That's the give and take of Hollywood, baby.
As far as spin-offs go, if they’re done right then this writer is all for them. Does it bode well then that Xerxes has been re-titled by Warner Bros. and is now 300: Battle of Artemisia? If you look at it from a branding perspective, most likely this new title is better for the 300 franchise since it obviously links the semi-prequel with the smash hit original 300 starring Gerard Butler.
With Zack Snyder heading up Superman: The Man of Steel, expectations are high that the man behind 300 and Watchmen can bring a Dark Knight-level of success to Big Blue. As Superman Returns proved, however, achieving greatness isn't easy. Like so many superhero films of late, what seemed like a great idea for a Superman story didn't quite materialize on the big screen.
Man of Steel is set to begin filming this year, so I've thought hard about how the director can really make this film work. I've now compiled five different ways Zach Snyder can make us all happy to see the Last Son of Krypton on the big screen again.
After working on the prequel to 300 for three years, Frank Miller and Dark Horse are ready to give fans a sneak peek at the upcoming comic book, which is sure to follow up with another big screen adaptation.
