Check out the newest trailer for the 300 sequel entitled 300: Rise of an Empire. Visually, this film looks stunning even more impressive than it’s predecessor.
Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes, and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war.
“300: Rise of an Empire” pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
The film is directed by Noam Murro from a script written by Zack Snyder and Kurt Johnstad. 300: Rise of an empire hits theaters on March 7th, 2014.

A petition has launched on change.org urging big brands to stop commissioning omnipresent and controversial photographer Terry Richardson. The petition specifically calls upon Vogue, H&M, Mango and Supreme, and cites several reasons for its case including “his supposed exploit & abuse of certain models, mainstream degrading pornographic imagery, and inappropriate and unprofessional behavior.”
Furthermore, the petition calls for the allegations against Richardson to be looked at more closely, asking for action to be taken before it’s too late (such as in the case of Jimmy Savile). It also draws upon some of his controversial past work, such as a photo of a women in a trash can “giving Richardson a sexual favor,” as well as some contentious statements he’s said like “It’s not who you know, it’s who you blow. I don’t have a hole in my jeans for nothing.”
The petition currently has 8,000 signatures and can be seen and/or signed here.
It seems as though Terry Richardson has found his favorite celebrity to shoot in Miley Cyrus who has been in front of the famed photographer’s lens several times this year. The location of the shoot was of course New York at Terry’s studio but also at the singer’s hotel room. This time around Miley seems to be a little more comfortable, wearing very little clothing that leaves nothing to the imagination, but who’s complaining?

With the recent economic struggles of Detroit, residents can breathe a little easier being that the upcoming Superhero blockbuster film Batman vs Superman will take place there.
Henry Cavill and Ben Afleck will sport the iconic Superman and Batman costumes respectively and we now have an official press release thanks to Superhero Hype.
The Michigan Film Office announced today that the next DC Entertainment Super Hero movie from Warner Bros. Pictures has been approved for a film incentive from the state.
The film, from director Zack Snyder, brings together the two greatest Super Heroes of all time—Superman and Batman—for the first time on the big screen. Production on the new film is expected to begin in metro Detroit and throughout Michigan sometime in the first quarter of 2014. Snyder is co-writing the story with David S. Goyer, who is writing the screenplay. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing the film, which will star Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
“This project will further strengthen the reputation of Michigan and metro Detroit as a premier film destination,” said Margaret O’Riley, director of the Michigan Film Office. “We look forward to the spotlight shining on our incredibly talented workforce and the businesses that support our film industry here in Michigan.”
“Detroit is a great example of a quintessential American city, and I know it will make the perfect backdrop for our movie,” stated filmmaker Zack Snyder. “Detroit and the entire state of Michigan have been fantastic collaborators, and we are looking forward to working together on this film.”
The as-yet-untitled feature film was awarded an incentive of $35 million on $131 million of projected in-state expenditures. The production is expected to hire 406 Michigan workers, with a full time equivalent of 426 jobs, plus an additional 6,000 man/days of extra work. The production anticipates using approximately 500 local Michigan vendors during the course of production and spending $5.1 million on local hotels, as well as an additional $3.5 million in out-of-town cast and crew per diem payments that will be spent in the local economy but which fall outside of the incentive program.
The incentive funding for the project will be allocated out of the Fiscal Year 2014 budget. However, any funding remaining from the budget at the end of the current fiscal year will be directed to offset the full incentive amount for this project.
