Thor actress Jaimie Alexander strips off her Asgardian Lady Sif armor in exchange for a fully tattooed physique as amnesiac Jane Doe in NBC’s new one-hour drama Blindspot. And how Jane makes her entrance on the show is eerie and compelling.
A large duffle bag is found on the crowded nighttime streets of Times Square, the heart of “see something, say something” New York City. A tag hanging on it reads “Call the FBI.” The NYPD bomb squad is dispatched but they won’t be finding a bomb. Instead, as they approach the bag, the zipper starts opening from the inside. What emerges as if from a cocoon is a frightened, naked women who’s tattooed from neck to toe. And, she has no memory of who she is”¦ or of anything else.
A red band trailer has been released for Kill Me Three Times, a dark new action comedy starring Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Star Trek).
In the movie Pegg plays an assassin who is hired to kill a man’s wife, but quickly discovers that he isn’t the only one trying to eliminate his target. It also stars Alice Braga (City of God, Elysium), Sullivan Stapleton (300: Rise of an Empire, Strike Back), Teresa Palmer (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Warm Bodies), Callan Mulvey (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, 300: Rise of an Empire), Luke Hemsworth (The Anomaly, The Reckoning), and Bryan Brown (The Thorn Birds, Gorillas in the Mist).
You can read a synopsis and check out the red band trailer for Kill Me Three Times below. The trailer is NSFW obviously, due to some naughty words and violence. The only specks of nudity—seen on postcards in the international trailer also included below—are blurred out in this, the red band trailer. Because our precious, fragile little eyes cannot handle such things here in the States.
A third trailer has been released for 300: Rise of an Empire, the follow-up/parallel/companion to the 2006 Zack Snyder hit, 300. This new trailer takes a step out of the time the movie is set in, and uses the Black Sabbath classic “War Pigs” to spice things up a bit more.
The movie follows Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton), as he attempts to lead the Greeks against god-king Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), his immense Persian army, and the deadly commander of the Persian navy Artemesia (Eva Green) after the victory over Leonidas and his brave 300.
You can read a lengthier description of the movie and watch the new trailer below.
We’ve already seen a two-and-a-half-minute trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire, the much anticipated sequel to Zack Snyder’s 2006 stylized hit about King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and his brave 300 Spartans. But if you fear a trailer giving away too much and that first trailer is a little lengthy for your taste, here’s another option.
The UK trailer for Rise of an Empire has been released, and it clocks in at only about a minute. The movie follows the Battle of Artemisium, another battle involving the Persians, led by the God-King Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), that unfolds around the same time that 300‘s Battle of Thermopylae. It sees Xerxes’ commander of the Persian navy Artemisia (Eva Green) doing battle on the seas against Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton), a Greek general attempting to unite all of Greece. Lena Headey also makes an appearance in the movie and in this trailer, reprising her role as Queen Gorgo.

The long gestating sequel to 300 has finally arrived. After what seemed like years of talk, 300: Rise of an Empire is the sequel that will tell the story of what happens after 300 Spartans died trying to fight off the Persian forces of Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro). Noam Murro(Smart People) directs this sequel, replacing Zack Snyder, who was a producer on this film. And it wouldn’t be much a 300 film if it didn’t have a little bloodshed and some breathtaking visuals. Luckily this film has plenty of that.
In the film, Sullivan Stapleton plays Themistocles who leads the Greek army to fight Xerxes and the villainess Artemesia (Eva Green). Check out the first trailer for the film below.
