The first trailer has arrived for the upcoming sequel 300: Rise of an Empire. The original 300 released in 2007 and drew $456 million worldwide on a budget of just $65 million. This sequel has Noam Murro (Smart People) replacing Zack Synder as director though Snyder did help write the screenplay. 300: Rise of an Empire is slated to release on March 7, 2014.

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. “300: Rise of an Empire” pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
