Rodrigo Santoro’s highly anticipated sequel to 300 may not be coming out until next spring, but you can get your fix now.
Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for 300: Rise Of An Empire, the long-awaited sequel to the stylish 2006 hit, starring the 37-year-old Brazilian actor.
In the sequel, Persian queen Artemisia (portrayed by Eva Green) uses her “entire navy” to attack the Greeks, who are led by politician and general Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton).
The film has everything you’d expect from an action-packed period film, including swords, axes, arrows, knives, flames, ships, horses, death, destruction.
Lena Headey and Santoro reprise their respective roles as Queen Gorgo and Xerxes alongside newcomers Stapleton, Green and Hans Matheson.
Director Noam Murro’s sequel, written by Zack Snyder and Kurt Johnstad and based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel Xerxes, opens March 7, 2014.
