Trailer – First Look at Paul Mescal in Gladiator II

Almost two decades after a thumbs-down sent a shockwave through the Colosseum, prepare to dust off your sandals for Ridley Scott’s Gladiator sequel. We trade in Russell Crowe’s gruff charm for a new hero – Lucius, the son you might remember as a wide-eyed kid in the original, now played by one of Ireland’s fastest rising actors Paul Mescal. Gladiator II arrives in Irish cinemas this November – prepare to be entertained… again!

From legendary director Ridley Scott, Gladiator II continues the epic saga of power, intrigue, and vengeance set in Ancient Rome. Years after witnessing the death of the revered hero Maximus at the hands of his uncle, Lucius (Paul Mescal) is forced to enter the Colosseum after his home is conquered by the tyrannical Emperors who now lead Rome with an iron fist. With rage in his heart and the future of the Empire at stake, Lucius must look to his past to find strength and honor to return the glory of Rome to its people.
