In 2007, audiences were greeted by a new action film called 300. From the work of Frank Miller and directed by Zach Snyder, 300 found a place in pop culture thanks to its ridiculous action and "This is Sparta". For the longest time, you would assume that 300 was just a one-hit wonder, but apparently there is more to tell in the upcoming sequel: 300 Rise of an Empire. The film continues the war of the Persians as well as tells the story of Xerxes. This sequel/prequel will be out in theaters next spring, so it seems to high time o get the full trailer out to see. That is exactly what we got today, and we're going to see how this new film fairs in this addition of Trailer Analysis.
An interesting back story.
Rise of an Empire is going into the story of Xerxes and his rise of power; however this trailer brought something I didn't expect. According to the preview, Xerses's rise to power comes from the aid of his sister, Artemisia (Eva Green). It almost looks like Artemisia is manipulating Xerxes for an unknown reason. Either that or she is very loyal to him. Either way, this brings an interesting narrative to the story.
A story of revenge of survival.
300: Rise of an Empire hits theaters March 7, 2014.
