Eva Green Makes This Empire "Rise"

17 July 2014 5:15 PM, PDT

Two years after remaking Romero’s socially aware Dawn of the Dead, director Zack Snyder jumped aboard 300, the action porn realization of Frank Miller’s graphic novel. Sin City had just come out and Miller was in. The movie would go on to cash in big, while making an international star out of Gerard Butler, Game of ThronesLena Headey, and, yes, even young Magneto himself, Michael Fassbender. Snyder also legitimized himself as an A-Lister and went on to direct Alan Moore’s mesmerizing epic Watchmen and franchise reboot Man of Steel, with the Justice League movie on deck.

Even Bryan Cranston obviously had no guidance and ended up a stuttering, underdeveloped Walter White mess. The action scenes, so well advertised in the trailer, were nothing to write home about. Then again, the last incarnation of Godzilla wasn’t much to write home about either. Starring Matthew Broderick, Jean Reno, and Hank Azaria, with Roland Emmerich directing on the heels of the wildly successful Independence Day, 1998’s Godzilla was a dud.
