This isn’t Sparta, it’s SQ, but 300 was such a bad ass action movie, you knew they were going to unleash a sequel to keep the green-screened cash cow going. Although the film is still about 9 months out, the first official trailer is absolutely jaw dropping: all of the violence, details, and dark, ominous tones (to quote Peter Bretter from “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) are back, along with some new faces, to include former Casino Royale “Bond Girl” Eva Green. Also new to the green screen is a completely different battlefield: the sea. Had I realized that prior to watching the trailer, the Marine in me would have been a little discouraged, but after watching the trailer, this thing will still be epicly violent, and yes, epicly is a word in my book. 300: Rise of an Empire lands in theaters March 7th, 2014, and this is one you will not want to miss – trust me.
300: Rise of an Empire Trailer
When the original 300 opened, audiences were floored by the Frank Miller re-creation, and even though Rise of an Empire appears to be “more of the same”, that is definitely a good thing! It’s been a while since I threw the original 300 into my PS3’s Blu-Ray player, so I think I know what I’m doing over the weekend.
March 7th, 2014 folks – prepare yourselves. Oh, and if you want abs like that, I would recommend starting now.
