First Trailer for 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE

     June 12, 2013


The first trailer for director Noam Murro’s sequel 300: Rise of an Empire has been released online.  If you loved the first movie for all of its oiled-up muscles, slow-motion battles and endless bloodletting, then it looks like the sequel is going to be right up your alley.  The trailer, expertly narrated by Lena Headey during what appears to be the aftermath of 300′ultimate battle, reveals that the look and tone of Rise of an Empire appear to be quite consistent with the original.  This time around, however, we get new looks at Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) on his home turf, General Artemisia (Eva Green) in all her fury and leagues upon leagues of sea battles.  And if I’m not mistaken, is that some dialogue from Ephialtes (Andrew Tiernan) we hear?

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  Starring Sullivan Stapleton300: Rise of an Empire opens on March 7, 2014.

Check out the trailer below:

Here’s the synopsis for 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 it doesnt look as bad as i expected

  • justkiddingnobutseriously

    I wish this opened on August 2nd but I thought it was pushed back to March 2014?

    • Grayden

      Yeah, the poster says March 2014.

  • nalindra

    well this looks good actually more naval warfare which is cool

  • derek

    Doesnt look too bad. They could have called it something else. I mean do they really need to still call it 300 so that people understand its a sequel to 300. lol

    • yea

      Yes, this is america we are talking about

  • Jamesy

    Pleasantly surprised, actually looks pretty good. Seems to be its own movie but just using the 300 canon for marketing purposes.

  • Bob

    Okay, I’m actually really surprised…this looks epic ad awesome actually.

    • Bob


  • Diaz

    Yeah I’m actually shocked at how good this looked. I thought this movie was supposed to be a prequel, but then again I event paid much attention to the news of this flick. I had written it off from it’s conception… I might have judged too soon!

  • The Blue Elephant

    awesome trailer, hope the actual movie holds up. Loved the first one.

    I thought there was going to be a “THIS IS SPARTAAAA” in the trailer.

  • Robert V.

    This is what I have been waiting for!!!

    I am alive again! :D

  • Murdoch

    Damn . . . really feel like this movie should’ve come out closer to when the first one was released. Right now, it just screams “T R O Y”

    • Nerdgasm

      How do you come to that conclusion…Because it has taken seven years to get this out it reminds you of a movie that came out BEFORE the original ’300.’ You are grasping at straws to be negative over something you know nothing about. good job. Tardopalardo.

      • Murdoch

        De Nada. The scenes of battle, the endless ships remind me of Troy. If a movie comes out a few years from now where a bunch of scantily clad men charge at each other with spears & shields, i’ll go back to start thinking about the first 300.

  • Strong Enough

    3D? yeah this movie is making a ton of money, look forward to the threequel

  • Clancey

    Surprised by this trailer. Looks exciting!!!

    Doesn’t look bad. Doesn’t look good. Just another sequel that isn’t necessary whatsoever.
