The new trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire has arrived from Warner Brothers. You have to love their use of Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” in the spot. Has it been to long since the original? Does anyone want a sequel to 300? Sound off below Maniacs!

Synopsis: 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.

The film features Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, Rodrigo Santoro, Callan Mulvey, David Wenham, Jack O’Connell, Andrew Tiernan,  Igal Naor, Andrew Pleavin, and is directed by Noam Murro (Smart People)
300: Rise of an Empire arrives March 7th, 2014.
