Those About to Die Trailer #2

“Enough is good. More is better. Too much is perfect.” Peacock has unveiled the second official for an epic Roman Empire series Those About To Die, a riff on the classic Roman phrase “Hail, Emperor, those who are about to die salute you” or “Ave Imperator, morituri te salutant.” It’ll be streaming on Peacock starting in a few more weeks. The series chronicles the world of gladiators in Ancient Rome. It may not be connected to Ridley Scott’s Gladiator movie, or its upcoming sequel Gladiator 2 due out later this year (huzzah!), but it’s definitely something they want you to feel is connected. Some of the episodes are directed by Roland Emmerich and it was shot at the Cinecittà studio in Rome. Anthony Hopkins stars as the Roman Emperor Vespasian, with a massive cast: Dimitri Leonidas as Scorpus, Jojo Macari, Gabriella Pession, Iwan Rheon, Sara Martins-Court, Moe Hashim, David Wurawa, Tom Hughes, Lara Wolf, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, Rupert Penry-Jones, and Angeliqa Devi. We featured the teaser trailer and other official trailer for this before, and it does look properly epic – though I hope it won’t be skimpy on the action. So far this footage continues to look solid – I’ll check out the first few episodes when it arrives soon.

Here’s the second official trailer (+ poster) for Peacock’s series Those About To Die, found on YouTube:

An epic drama set in the corrupt world of the spectacle-driven gladiatorial competition, exploring a side of ancient Rome never before told — the dirty business of entertaining the masses, giving the mob what they want most…blood and sport. The series introduces an ensemble of characters from all corners of the Roman Empire who collide at the explosive intersection of sports, politics, and dynasties. Those About To Die is a series created and developed by writer Robert Rodat, creator of the “Falling Skies” TV series and writer of The Catcher Was a Spy and The Command previously. Additional writing by Jill Robi. Adapted from the classic novel of the same name by Daniel P. Mannix. Featuring episodes directed by epic filmmaker Roland Emmerich (Universal Soldier, Stargate, Independence Day, Godzilla, The Patriot, The Day After Tomorrow, White House Down, Moonfall) and Marco Kreuzpaintner. It’s executive produced by Robert Rodat, Gianni Nunnari, Harald Kloser, Marco Kreuzpaintner, Oliver Berben, Herbert G. Kloiber, Martin Moszkowicz, Jonas Bauer, Stuart Ford, Lourdes Diaz, Charles Holland, and of course Emmerich. NBC will debut Those About To Die streaming on Peacock starting July 18th, 2024 coming up.
