We live in an age of Hollywood where remakes, reboots and sequels are all the rage. Virtually no property is safe from any of these three things, case in point being a seemingly needless prequel to 300 which is set to hit theaters this upcoming March. A new sneak peek trailer has been released for the film and it looks both incredibly stupid yet totally amazing.
As you can probably piece together from the title alone, 300: Rise of the Empire is actually a prequel to 300 in which we get to see the rise of an evil army and the birth of King Xerxes’ his rule over Greece.
Here’s a quick synopsis of 300: Rise of the Empire:
Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes, and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield-on the sea-as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. This film pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemesia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
