First Trailer for ‘300’ Follow-Up ‘300: Rise of an Empire’
Although the film has been constantly moving around, 300: Rise of an Empire looks poised to actually open next March. On March 7, 2014, Noam Murro’s sort-of-prequel to Zack Snyder’s 300 (made in 2007) will officially release. Until then, you can watch the trailer (below).
Starring Sullivan Stapleton (Gangster Squad, Strike Back) and Eva Green (Casino Royale), the movie will follow the Battle of Artemisium (a naval battle) and the Battle of Salamis. It’ll take place partially before, during, and after the events of 300.
As far as expectations go, I hope it’s as good as the original movie. However, upon subsequent viewings of 300, I’ve started to realize how style-heavy 300 was and am hoping Rise of an Empire will be more story-heavy.
We will see early next year!
