Posted by The Daily Zombies Saturday, January 25, 2014

"Generals gathered in their masses. Just like witches at black masses."

Brace yourself with the new trailer of 300: Rise of an Empire, now optimized thanks to Black Sabbath's immortal classic track, War Pigs. And prepare yourself for an awesome representation of all the elaborate bloodletting and lyrical exposition of the film by artist Alex Pardee

There are no doubts that many question the necessity of a prequel/sequel to 300, the 2007 film based on the award-winning comic book series of the same name by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley that made Zack Snyder's career. After all, despite the mild controversy surrounding the film's theme, 300 is a bona fide blockbuster that have been one of the most memorable films in the 2000s. 

Directed by Noam Murro, Rise of an Empire will be taking before, during, and after the events of the original film with parts of the film loosely based on Xerxes as it covers part of origins of Rodrigo Santoro's antagonistic role in the first film, King Xerxes, Great King of Persia. In addition, new elements focusing on both the Athenian admiral, Themistocles, played by by Australian actor Sullivan Stapleton, as well as Artemisia, a new antagonist role played by Eva Green, will also be heavily featured with Lena Headey reprising her role as Queen Gorgo of Sparta,

With 300: Rise of an Empire set to be released this March, the marketing machines have been working hard with a series of trailers and posters released across the past weeks. 

First up, we take a look at the new trailer, cleverly fusing Black Sabbath's immortal classic track, War Pigs, with some epic-looking battle sequence. With no further ado, hit the jump to check out the trailer.

And here's an earlier-released trailer with some cool imagery that one would come to associate with the film.

Thanks to Mondo, the Alamo Drafthouse's collectible art boutique, a specially commissioned poster will be given away at an upcoming fan screening for the film with artist Alex Pardee delivering his signature style with a touch of the elaborate bloodletting and lyrical exposition from the film. Hit the jump to check out the awesome poster.

And here are the series of character posters and banners recently-released by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

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.

Warner Bros. Picture presents, in association with Legendary Pictures, a Cruel and Unusual Films/Mark Canton/Gianni Nunnari Production, “300: Rise of an Empire.” The action adventure stars Sullivan Stapleton (“Gangster Squad”) as Themistokles and Eva Green (“Dark Shadows,” “Casino Royale”) as Artemesia. Lena Headey reprises her starring role from “300″ as the Spartan Queen, Gorgo; Hans Matheson (“Clash of the Titans”) stars as Aeskylos; and Rodrigo Santoro stars again as the Persian King, Xerxes.

300: Rise of an Empire is currently scheduled to be released in 3D and IMAX 3D on March 7, 2014.
