For all you action hounds awaiting a second course of Spartan glory, that time is almost at hand. To whet your appetites, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released a tasty featurette for the Noam Murro directed 300: Rise of an Empire. The last trailer to come down the pike gave us a good idea of what to expect, story-wise, but this goes even further. It’s roughly the kind of surface level but in-depth feature you’ll find on the Blu Ray but oh well. Have a look as Murro and co., even Zack Snyder help connect the dots to the adrenaline fueled 2006 dance of death, better known as 300. Enjoy the glory!!
In this companion film, side story/sequel, thing-a-magig, we’ll get to see the headlining character Themistocles (played by Sullivan Stapleton) speahead the charge against invading Persian forces led by vengeful commander of the Persian navy Artemisia (Eva Green) and the golden mortal-turned-god Xerxes (again played by Rodrigo Santoro). The new film is based on the upcoming Frank Miller graphic novel ‘Xerxes’. If you’re game to go face to face with Xerxes again then you’re in luck because this is less than a month away. WB has slated 300: Rise of an Empire for wide release (in 3D!) on March 7th, 2014.
