The 300: Rise of an Empire Trailer Would Like To Love You In Slow Motion.
The sequel, while produced and co-written by Zack Snyder, is directed by Noam Murro (Smart People). Obviously Michael Fassbender and Gerard Butler aren't back. Well, their bodies are back. Sort of.
Rodrigo Santoro does return as Xerxes, the mortal who became a god, and it is his empire that wishes to rise. Sullivan Stapleton is our new protagonist and Eva Green is a really pissed off General Artemisia that wishes to crush him and hear the lamentations of his women.
300: Rise of an Empire has been set for a March 2014 release.
