Jul 09, 2024 7:34 PM

The first trailer for Gladiator 2 has been released, showcasing a highly anticipated rhino battle that director Ridley Scott has wanted for over two decades. This sequel brings back the epic scale and intense action of the original 2000 film, starring Russell Crowe and Joaquin Phoenix. Notably, the trailer reveals the CG rhino, a significant addition that Scott couldn't afford in the first movie due to budget constraints. With an increased budget of around $310 million, Gladiator 2 features Paul Mescal as Lucius, Pedro Pascal as Marcus Acacius, and Denzel Washington as Macrinus. The film is set to hit theaters on November 22, 2024, the same day as the live-action Wicked movie.
