Here’s the latest trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire, director Noam Murro‘s sequel to 2006’s Zack Snyder-directed 300. As much as fans are becoming more and more excited for this, I can’t help but think it looks pretty dreadful.
Either way, you be the judge and watch the trailer after the jump. 300: Rise of an Empire hits theaters March 7, 2014.
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 (Sullivan Stapleton) 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 (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemisia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
