A trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire has hit the Net, and it looks like nothing short of spectacular. The follow-up to Zack Snyder's 2006 masterpiece, this movie looks to have the same feel and impact as its predecessor.
The plot of the movie depicts mortal-turned-"god" Xerxes in his bid to overtake more territory. The film is based on Frank Miller's graphic novel, Xerxes.
Director Noam Murro has said of the movie's scale that "this is a much larger palette, historically and geographically. It is larger in scale, and it takes place on water. We wanted to create different styles of battles, and there are very distinct ones in this movie. There's the fire battle and the fog battle."
300: Rise of an Empire is slated to hit theaters on March 7, 2014.
