Maximus died at the Coliseum years ago. Now his legacy is picked up by his sister Lucilla’s son, Lucius and Commodus’ nephew. Back in Rome as a gladiator, Lucius faces the wiles of power-hungry macrinus senator or old tough general marcus acacius.

Through sprawling battle sequences and carefully restored Roman architecture, the trailer displays the movie’s epicness. The Colosseum seen as an epitome of glory as well as bestiality once again forms backset for intense gladiatorial combats which will make audience sit on the edge of their seats.

Paul Mescal who starred in Normal People and Aftersun comes with remarkable energy to play Lucius. From a child growing up sheltered from such horrors through to becoming a hardened warrior. He presents glimpses into this transformation during some extracts showing his skills in fierce combat as well as unwavering determination.

Denzel Washington plays Macrinus while Pedro Pascal portrays Acacius who is cunning. It is expected that Washington would command respect from the audience whereas Pascal would be charismatic enough to create clashes of personality important to carry dramatic tension throughout this film.

Lucilla (Connie Nielsen) though no longer empress anymore finds herself having new obstacles after her brother’s demise. This indicates how she still remains strong and resilient while dealing with treacherous politics within Rome according to this trailer.

Inherited chaos Power struggles erupt as fictional rulers clash in Rome (Emperor Geta). They are shown in this preview to be impulsive and unpredictable characters who have the power to unsettle Rome’s delicate balance of power.

In each frame of this trailer, Ridley Scott’s love for the project is visible. After he didn’t direct sequels for his other iconic films such as Alien and Blade Runner. Gladiator II has enabled him return to a world which he helped in creating as well as expanding on its rich mythology.

The only problem with the trailer that may be identified is its inappropriate use of rap music, an urban sound out of place in ancient Rome. This might have been done so as to appeal to younger audience in this case. But it contradicts the otherwise authentic atmosphere that is created by this trailer.

‘Gladiator II’ will become a cinematic event that both original movie fans and first-timers would impatiently wait for despite this minor setback. It can even be considered a classic someday because it boasts of captivating storyline, stunning visuals and most significantly an all-star cast.
