Thanks to Warner Bros here’s the first official movie trailer of 300 Rise of an Empire, the upcoming action drama movie directed by Noam Murro and starring Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, and Rodrigo Santoro:
300 RISE OF AN EMPIRE
“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 Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.”
Well, thought 300 Rise of an Empire was supposed to be a prequel (in real life the battle of Marathon the film is based on took place before the battle with the Spartans from 300) , but it’s actually set as a sequel to 300. Hollywood loves to rewrite History for the sake of entertainment! Anyway, the trailer does looks amazing, can’t wait to see the film!
The movie 300 Rise of An Empire will open in theaters on March 7, 2014.
