Check out this trailer!
Trailer: 300: Rise of an Empire – Official #1
Lots of really slow motion action kills in there. No doubt there will be more blood.

Following the European premiere of Man of Steel last night, Warner Bros. dropped the first trailer for the sequel to Zack Snyder’s movie 300 this time called 300: Rise of an Empire. This first trailer starts off where 300 ended seeing Xerxes standing over the body of King Leonidas’ body with a chilling narration from Lena Headey blending into a lust for blood as the Spartans head off for revenge again the evil Xerxes.
The film stars Sullivan Stapleton as Themistokles, Eva Green as Artemisia. Lena Headey as the Spartan Queen, Gorgo; Hans Matheson as Aeskylos David Wenham as Dilios, and Rodrigo Santoro as the Persian King Xerxes. 300: Rise of an Empire and should be with us March 2014.

More death and destruction await in this first, Spartan-fuelled preview for 300: Rise Of An 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.
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.
The action adventure stars Sullivan Stapleton (“Gangster Squad”) as Themistokles and Eva Green (“Dark Shadows,” “Casino Royale”) as Artemisia. Lena Headey reprises her starring role from 300 as the Spartan Queen, »

Prepare for some serious man-yelling. Of course I'm talking about the very first trailer for Warner Bros.' "300: Rise of an Empire," the follow-up to Zack Snyder's 2007 blockbuster that made Gerard Butler a star and paved the way for such modern-day sword-and-sandal epics as "Immortals" and "Clash of the Titans." Snyder is just a producer this time around, with director Noam Murro (erm, "Smart People") taking the reins and starring duties now handled by Aussie beefcake Sullivan Stapleton ("Gangster Squad," Cinemax's "Strike Back"), who plays the role of Athenian general Themistocles during the second Persian invasion of Greece.

If any film demanded a sequel, it is Zack Snyder’s 300. With Man Of Steel hitting this weekend, it is no mistake that the first trailer for 300: Rise Of An Empire has chosen this moment to assault our collective senses.
While Mr. Snyder did not direct 300: Rise Of An Empire, he did have a hand in both writing and producing it. The film follows the Greek general Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton) as he leads an army against Persian King Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), the most fabulous god-king in all the land. The story roughly parallels the Battle of Thermopylae, which 300 gave us in such adrenaline pumping CGI. But this film primarily concerns the naval Battle of Artemisium, so we can expect a lot of very wet men in leather bikinis. Am I complaining? No. I am not.

The bad news: it's been pushed a whole year until March 2014. The good news is, the new trailer for “300: Rise of an Empire” is here, even if it's now nine months early (maybe everyone figured, "hell, it's done!"). Don't look for many original players (though a few are back). Zack Snyder's not directing (though he is producing), Gerard Butler and all those dudes bit it at the end of the first film. Instead you've got filmmaker Noam Murro, the indie director behind 2008's "Smart People," who must have put together some impressive promo reel to convince Warner Bros. he could go from that tiny, talky indie to this would-be tentpole. There aren't a lot of stars either. Sullivan Stapleton (“Gangster Squad”) plays Themistokles and Eva Green (“Dark Shadows,” “Casino Royale”) plays the villaness Artemisia.

This is the latest poster for 300: Rise of an Empire, and it features a wave of blood. If you've seen the first movie, then you know there's going to be a lot of blood spilt in battle.
The movie is being directed by Noam Murro from a screenplay written by Zack Snyder and Kurt Johnstad. It's based on the graphic novel Xerxes, by Frank Miller. The first film was so badass. It's my motivational workout movie. I hope this sequel ends up being just as awesome.
It's is set to be released on August 2nd, 2013 and here's the synopsis:

Life's been good to Sullivan Stapleton. A few years ago he was taking odd jobs crewing on films and TV to pay the bills, now he probably has some kind of venerable butler who pays his bills for him. His change in circumstances can be traced back to Animal Kingdom, the crime film that basically launched him into the Us, along with Jacki Weaver, Joel Edgerton, Ben Mendelsohn, James Frecheville and of course its director David Michôd. Since Animal Kingdom took off in 2010, Stapleton has gone on to star in action TV series Strike Back and also had a bit in Gangster Squad. However it was to be 300: Rise of an Empire where he was truly expected to come into his own. Now we...

In the same article about Warner Bros moving forward with "Man of Steel 2," it's mentioned that David Goyer signed a three-picture deal with Warner Bros that includes "Man of Steel," "Man of Steel 2," and "Justice League." Will Beall (Gangster Squad) previously provided a script for "Justice League," but ever since Warner Bros got to work on "Man of Steel," it was rumored that Beall's script will not be used since the studio will head in a different direction, to be guided by the "Man of Steel" team. News of Goyer's hiring to write "Justice League" confirms that rumor. During the premiere of "Man of Steel," Zack Snyder said that he would be happy to discuss directing "Justice League" when the time comes. Regarding the story... "You can't make a 'Justice League' movie without Superman at the top, at the helm of the Justice League." Click here to read more about "Justice League. »
Leonardo DiCaprio is set to portray Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin, the infamous Russian mystic, healer and prolific womaniser who rose to become one of the most influential advisors to the Russian Imperial family the Romanovs in the early 20th century before being poisoned, shot, beaten, shot, strangled, clubbed, shot, castrated and then shot again by his rivals, who then dumped him in the icy Neva River where he subsequently drowned. Or something like that.
The latest screen version of the Mad Monk's mad life has been written by Jason Hall, who recently penned the script for Steven Spielberg's upcoming biopic American Sniper starring Bradley Cooper, and will be produced by DiCaprio's production company Appian Way for Warner Bros. Pictures. Kevin McCormick (Gangster Squad), Jennifer Davisson Killoran (The Ides of March) and Peter Morgan (The Queen) will all serve as producers.

Often after a real life tragedy or disaster, movie studios will alter or completely remove a scene from an upcoming movie if they feel it resembles these events too closely. Recently Warner Bros. reworked a cinema shootout from Gangster Squad after the horrific shootings at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colo. But was there any pressure to remove a devastating twister sequence from Man Of Steel after an EF5 tornado hit the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore on May 20, killing 24 people? According to Zack Snyder is was never discussed. "He’s changed by those events,” the director told Entertainment Weekly. “If anything, we feel like our Superman has a connection — not to make light of it — to the kind of grief that happens during those kinds of natural disasters. Also, in a sad way, even Superman can’t change that.” And what does »
Studio acquired a pitch from “American Sniper” writer Jason Hall, who will script the story of the influential Russian mystic who advised the ruling Russian Imperial family between 1907 and his death in 1916.
DiCaprio will be seen next in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” starring DiCaprio as stock broker Jordan Belfort. Appian Way is a producer on the film, with Paramount releasing the film on Nov. 15.
Warner-based McCormick is the studio’s former production chief. He was a producer on “Gangster Squad.”
The deal for Hall was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
Hall is repped by CAA and Management 360. »

Burbank, Calif. — In the upcoming film "Man of Steel," Superman faces off against ruthless outcasts from his home planet. The last son of Krypton also encounters a more realistic force of nature on earth: a deadly tornado.
"He's changed by those events," said Snyder during an interview to promote the movie. "If anything, we feel like our Superman has a connection – not to make light of it – to the kind of grief that happens during those kinds of natural disasters. Also, in a sad way, even Superman can't change that."
A top-of-the-scale EF5 tornado hit the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore on May 20, killing 24 people. Another round of violent storms that produced a separate EF5 tornado struck last Friday, leaving nearly two dozen people dead. »
Superman is faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a locomotive, but can he stop a massive tornado?
That's at the heart of a key scene in "Man of Steel," which has been glimpsed in the trailers. But with the recent tornado devastation in Oklahoma -- where two EF5 twisters left dozens dead -- would the scene remain in the movie?
Director Zack Snyder confirmed that he is keeping the tornado sequence. "He's changed by those events. If anything, we feel like our Superman has a connection -- not to make light of it -- to the kind of grief that happens during those kinds of natural disasters," Snyder said.
"Also, in a sad way, even Superman can't change that."
If Snyder had altered or removed the scene, it wouldn't have been the first time that a movie did so out of sensitivity to recent tragedies. "Gangster Squad »
