New poster and trailer for ‘300 Rise of an Empire’ Eva Green battles Sullivan Stapleton

Warner Bros have released a new poster for the follow-up to Zack Snyder’s popular film 300 (this time directed by Noam Murro, with a script from Snyder and Kurt Johnstad), as well as a brief sneak peek of the action-packed new trailer.

A full trailer landed back in August and fans have been hopeful for more updates. Watch it here.

Based on Frank Miller’s follow-up graphic novel Xerxes300: Rise Of An Empire follows Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton) as he goes up against Xerxes’ (Rodrigo Santoro) Persian army. This time round, the battle takes place at sea, which should provide scope for some epic new action sequences.

“It’s huge!” Lena Headey recently said, discussing her return as Queen. “It’s different in that Zack [Snyder] didn’t direct it, so it’s a very different feeling…But the film, visually, follows on very much from the original. It’s something that’s so beloved for its physicality and visceral content. I had fun; I got to hold a sword.”

Headey’s returns as Queen Gorgo, and the film adds a new character Calisto, played by Jack O’Connell.

300: Rise of an Empire arrives on theaters on March 7, 2014.

Official synopsis: After its victory over Leonidas’ 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes’ army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land.
