After quite a long delay, Warner Bros. and Legendary will finally be releasing ‘300: Rise of an Empire’, the sequel to Zack Snyder’s 300, early next year. Noam Murro directed the follow-up and Snyder is a producer and screenwriter on the film.
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.
It hits theaters March 7, check out the trailer below.
