The official trailer no. 2 for “300: Rise Of An Empire” has landed in all it’s spectacular glory. Is it just me or does this film seem tons better than the first. I know the trailer is frickin’ epic and I am jonesin’ for this one!
“300: Rise Of An Empire” is directed by Noam Murro from a screenplay co-written by Zack Snyder. He and Kurt Johnstad seem to have brought to life a pretty sweet saga that takes the battle to a new shore. After its victory over Leonidas' 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes' army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land.
The film is adapted from the graphic novel series ‘Xerxes’ by Frank Miller. “Rise Of An Empire” lands in theatres on March 7th 2014. It stars Sullivan Stapleton, Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green, Jack O'Connell, Sullivan Stapleton, Scott Burn, David Wenham, Hans Matheson and Luke Roberts.
