‘300: Rise of an Empire’ Trailer Unveiled

Sequel due out March 7

Swords and water are the predominant themes of Warner Bros.’ trailer for its sword and sandals sequel “300: Rise of an Empire,” unveiled a full nine months before the March 7 release.

Based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel “Xerxes” and directed by Noam Murro in the same style as 2006’s surprise hit “300,” the new film centers on Greek general Themistokles (played by Sullivan Stapleton) and his attempts to unite all of Greece against the Persian invaders with much of the battling at sea.

Zack Snyder, director of “Man of Steel” and “300,” is producing along with Mark Canton and Gianni Nunnari. Eva Green stars as Artemisia, and Lena Headey reprises her role from “300” as the Spartan Queen along with Rodrigo Santoro as the Persian King, Xerxes.

Starring Gerard Butler, “300” grossed $456 million worldwide.
