Watch: Warriors Rage Hard in First Trailer for '300: Rise of an Empire'
After we saw a precise number of Spartans dine in hell in the adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel 300, from Man of Steel director Zack Snyder, the follow-up, 300: Rise of an Empire chronicles a new war with elements of the story taking place before, during and after the first film. Smart People director Noam Murro is stepping into action territory for the first time, and this pseudo-sequel certainly has the style and spirit of the first film. Sullivan Stapleton leads the pack as Themistocles leading Greece to a hopeful victory over the Persian forces of Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and the villainous vixen Artemesia (Eva Green). Can this make a splash with the audience who loved the original macho film? Watch below!
Here's the first trailer for Noam Murro's 300: Rise of an Empire, originally from Yahoo:
Noam Murro (Smart People) directs 300: Rise of an Empire (formerly The Battle of Artemisia), based on Frank Miller's upcoming prequel graphic novel Xerxes, and adapted by Zack Snyder (director of 300) and Kurt Johnstad (writer of 300 and Act of Valor). Greek general Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton) attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemesia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy. Warner Bros is releasing 300: Rise of an Empire everywhere in 3D on March 7th, 2014 early next year.
