Dramatic New Trailer for ‘300: Rise of an Empire’ Released

300RiseofanEmpireA brand new trailer for the Greek battle epic “300: Rise of an Empire” has been released, this time focusing more on the character of Artemesia (Eva Green) and the havoc she plans to wreak on Greece.

The two-and-a-half minute trailer begins with Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey) saying, “The oracle’s words stand as a warning. Sparta will fall. All of Greece will fall. And only stout, wooden ships can save them. Wooden ships and a tidal wave of heroes’ blood.” It’s then followed by scenes of battle, blood and biting words from opposing sides in the fight between the Greeks and Persian leader Xerxes’ (Rodrigo Santoro) army. Leonidas (Gerard Butler) also makes an appearance with a flashback to the first film, before Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton) promises to avenge the death of the 300 Spartans, proclaiming, “Let it be shown, we chose to die on our feet rather than live on our knees!”

The sequel to “300″ centers on Greek general Themistocles as he battles an invading army of Persians under the mortal-turned-god, Xerxes. Director Noam Murro is at the helm, taking over where Zack Snyder left off with the original.

“300 Rise of an Empire” hits theaters March 7, 2014.

  1. Any “Modern Greeks” that want to relive their fantasies of being related to the Ancient Greeks actually star in this? Maybe Nikos Michaloliakos of Golden Dawn can star as U-ranus

  2. Get you’re own f…king history & legends to tamper with !!
    I don’t need to go back to ancient times to relive anything Mother f…er!
    My recent history ie WW2, Greek; war of independence etc has thrown up more heroes than most nations any way!!
    This is what our enemies & our friends said of my recent ancestors- my grandparents generation.

    “For the sake of historical truth I must verify that only the Greeks, of all the adversaries who confronted us, fought with bold courage and highest disregard of death..” – Adolf Hitler (speech he gave at Reichstag, 4 May 1941)

    Hence we will not say that Greeks fight like heroes, but that heroes fight like Greeks!-Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

    The were humble rural people with little education….no they did not go into battle baring their six packs either Malaka.

  3. Although we are not pure ancient Greeks (who were not pure ancient Greeks themselves), modern DNA testing repeatedly shows we are direct descendents of ancient Greeks. Sucks to be you Skopian.
