Gladiator 2, Ridley Scott's new film starring Paul Mescal and Denzel Washington, in cinemas November 13, 2024. A Roman epic not to be missed.

Ridley Scott, renowned director of such iconic films as Gladiator and Blade Runner, returns with Gladiator II, a highly-anticipated sequel to the famous peplum released in 2000. This new opus, written by David Scarpa, stars Paul Mescal, recently spotted in Normal People, as well as May Calamawy and the illustrious Denzel Washington. The film promises to plunge viewers back into the ancient world of action, drama and heroism.

Gladiator 2 follows the story of Lucius, son of Lucilla (played by Connie Nielsen in Gladiator) and nephew of Commodus (played by Joaquin Phoenix in the first film). Lucius, impressed by Maximus' heroic career, aspires to follow in his footsteps and become a legendary gladiator. As the shadow of the Roman Empire continues to loom large, Lucius must face new challenges and enemies to find his own path and honor Maximus' legacy.

This film will appeal above all to fans of peplums and historical dramas, as well as those who loved the first Gladiator. The originality of Gladiator 2 lies in its in-depth exploration of the consequences of Maximus' actions on the next generation, embodied by Lucius. Audiences who enjoyed films such as Troy, Ben-Hur or 300 should find Gladiator II a captivating and emotionally rich work. The combination of a talented cast with veterans like Denzel Washington and rising young stars like Paul Mescal promises an interesting dynamic and an intense performance.

With Gladiator 2, Ridley Scott returns to his roots with a new Roman epic centered on the character of Lucius. The film promises to recapture the dramatic intensity and spectacular action that made Gladiator such a success. Fans of the genre and of the first film are eagerly awaiting the theatrical release on November 13, 2024 to discover this new adventure.
