A second trailer has been released for 300: Rise of an Empire, the sequel to Zac Snyder’s 2006 hit 300. Based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel Xerxes, this sequel (co-written and produced by Snyder) certainly aims to impress, with enough blood and CG glory to keep fans of the first film happy. Eva Green certainly appears to be enjoying her scenery chomping part and Aussie actor Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom) looks just right in his first big Hollywood role.
Check out the official synopsis, along with a character poster, underneath the trailer.
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.
