The wait is over... Let the battle begin! The first trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire, sequel to 2006's popular historical fantasy 300, has finally been released. The sounds of swords clashing, the bold visuals of bodies slicing, and slo-mo scenes of epic battling all reveal that the 300 sequel will not disappoint loyal fans of the first film.
Under the direction of Noam Murro, 300: Rise of an Empire documents Thermistocles the Greek General (Sullivan Stapleton) as he faces the threatening King-turned-God, Thermoplyae and his menacing Persian army. After a ghastly shot of the corpse of King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) lying on a mound of dead soldiers, the ominous trailer jumps to Game of Thrones' nefarious Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo giving the Spartans a pep talk to take vengeance against the Persian infantry.
The trailer ensures that this upcoming action-packed movie, written by Man of Steel director Zack Snyder, will satisfy audiences who love gory violence and stunning scenery accompanied by an epic score. 300: Rise of an empire charges into theatres March 7th, 2014.
