The 300: Rise of an Empire Trailer Would Like To Love You In Slow Motion.

300: Rise of an Empire is, of course, the sequel to 300 and is based on the Frank Miller graphic novel Xerxes. 300 is a movie that I enjoy and own. I like to watch it for the man candy and the fighting. Sometimes I pair it with a Rifftrax and double my pleasure and double my fun. I also double my wine intake. I suspect the sequel will hold the same place of honor in my viewing library.

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.
