There's no actor quite like Jeff Goldblum. He's a force entirely unto himself, a singular performer who always delivers a distinctly Goldblumian wit in films big and small.
While talking to IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick about a small new film, the one and only Goldblum dropped some news regarding his involvement in two sequels to nineties blockbusters that weren't just big, they were huge. Between Jurassic World and Independence Day 2, however, only one sequel will find Goldblum dusting off his genius glasses.
Opening in theaters on March 7th is 300: Rise of an Empire, which is the sequel to the extremely popular 300. The new film was written by the original movie's director Zack Snyder (Man of Steel), and directed by Noam Murro (Smart People). 300: Rise of an Empire features returning stars Lena Headey (Dredd), David Wenham (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King), and Rodrigo Santoro (The Last Stand), as well as new cast members Sullivan Stapleton (Gangster Squad), Eva Green (Casino Royale), Callan Mulvey (The Hunter), and Jack O'Connell (Harry Brown).
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with director Noam Murro, as well as franchise producer Mark Canton (Immortals) to talk about their work on 300: Rise of an Empire. The director and producer discussed their new movie, making a sequel, Zack Snyder's script based on an idea by comic book creator Frank Miller, why Snyder couldn't direct it, having Murro take over for him, casting Eva Green as the movie's villain, and a possible third film.

A bumper crop of crispy clips from next week's 300 sequel have an aroma of action, a pleasing jolt of Eva Green, and an aftertaste of speed-ramping naval warfare.
After almost a decade of promising a Sin City sequel, co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have finished up their cut of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
Two scanned magazine pages provide proof that Sin City 2 does indeed exist, showing off returning stars Jessica Alba and Mickey Rourke, as well as new addition Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Remember how last summer's The Purge spent so much time on the concept of an annual crimefest in which everything is legal for twelve hours, only to sidestep the actual purging in favor of a home-invasion story that didn't particularly necessitate the whole purge idea?
Well, the teaser trailer for this summer's The Purge: Anarchy promises actual purging on a large scale.
