'300: Rise Of An Empire' Trailer Released [VIDEO]
The first trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire was released online Wednesday.
300: Rise of an Empire is the sequel to the 2007 box office hit 300. The first film was based on the 1998 comic series, also entitled 300, by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley. 300: Rise of an Empire is based on Miller’s unpublished follow-up, Xerxes.
While 300 focused on the Spartans in its fictionalized representation of the Battle of Thermopylae, 300: Rise of an Empire focuses on the Persians before, throughout and after the events of the first film. Additionally, it will give some background on Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and likely focus in part on the Battle of Salamis and the Battle of Marathon.
The action-packed trailer is filmed in slow motion for the most part, which emphasizes the vast amount of violence, blood and fantastic CGI effects this movie has.
New to the cast are Eva Green, Sullivan Stapleton, Hans Matheson, Callan Mulvey, and Jack O’Connell. Reprising their roles from the first film are Lena Headey, Santoro, and David Wenham.
The film finished production in July 2012. Though originally set to be released Aug. 2, 2013, 300: Rise of an Empire is now slated to hit theaters on Mar. 7, 2014.
