Check out the official synopsis:

Gladiator II continues the epic saga of power, intrigue, and vengeance set in Ancient Rome. Years after witnessing the revered hero Maximus’s death at his uncle’s hands, Lucius (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.

Get this Gladiator II pairs Oscar winners Washington and Scott back again. The last time they collaborated was American Gangster, 15 years ago. We all know how that went – amazing, so it’ll be interesting to see what kind of magic they muster on this soon-to-be epic sequel.
