300: Rise Of An Empire Gets A Bloody New Poster, First Trailer Arrives Tomorrow
As we recently learned, it's going to be a while before we actually get to see 300: Rise of An Empire in theaters. Early last month we reported that the sequel had been pushed back from August 2nd of this year to March 7th of 2014. But with Man of Steel in theaters this weekend, Warner Bros. doesn't want to waste a golden opportunity to preview the biggest films on their upcoming slate. Hence why we are about nine months away from the new 300's release and we're already getting a theatrical poster and a debut trailer.
WB released the above artwork on the official Facebook page for the Ancient Greece-set sequel, and within the same post revealed that it won't be long until we see the first footage. According to the message, the first trailer will be available online at 4:30pm PT/7:30pm ET tomorrow, June 12th. Obviously we have no idea what to expect from the teaser trailer, but if it's anything like the CinemaCon footage I got to see a few months ago you should all prepare for a lot of violence, sexuality and high-contrast cinematography.
Directed by Noam Murro, 300: Rise of an Empire tells a parallel story to the events that unfolded with the Spartan army at the Battle of Thermopylae. The story centers on the Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton), who attempts to unite all of Greece and lead them into a naval battle against the on-coming Persian forces. This unfortunately puts him up against the living god and Persian leader Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) as well as Artemesia (Eva Green), the commander of the Persian navy who happens to have a serious grudge against the Greeks. Come back tomorrow to see the new trailer!
