300 Rise of an Empire

Warner Bros. have today released a new trailer for 300: Rise on an Empire, the upcoming movie based on Frank Miller’s still unpublished comic book. Directed by Noam Murro (Smart People), with a script from Zack Snyder (Man of Steel) and Kurt Johnstad (Act of Valor), it serves as both a prequel and sequel of sorts to 300, with events often running parallel with the 2006 release.

Along with the new trailer is yet another poster, again featuring Sullivan Stapleton as Themistocles.

300: Rise of an Empire also stars  Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, Rodrigo Santoro, Igal Naor, Callan Mulvey, Jack O’Connell and Andrew Tiernan, and is set to be released in 3D, 2D and IMAX on March 7th, 2014. What do you guys think about the new trailer? Let us know below.


Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes, and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. 300: Rise of an Empire pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemesia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
