New ‘300: Rise of an Empire’ Trailer Offers More of the Same

)Subscribe to KEAN 105 on

If you think the past few weeks have seen an absurd number of ‘300: Rise of an Empire‘ promotional materials, you’d be thinking right. Now, there’s another new trailer. After years of development and a lengthy, delay-filled post-production, the sequel to Zack Snyder‘s ‘300’ is finally seeing the light of day in a few weeks, and Warner Bros. is doing everything in their power to make sure that you and your mother and your next door neighbor are aware that it is a thing that exists and can be seen in theaters. But are any of these clips and posters and TV spots actually doing anything to get people excited?

‘300: Rise of an Empire’ acts as a prequel and a sequel to the first film, telling the story of Xerxes’ rise to power (prior to battling Gerard Butler‘s band of Spartans in the first film) and his ultimate defeat in an epic naval battle. Make no mistake: although much of the action this time around seems to take place on the high seas, there’s still plenty of slow motion and blood spurting and speed-ramping and so on.

And it all looks like more of the same. ‘300’ felt fresh back in 2007, but enough films have ripped it off at this point that the sequel just looks stale. Maybe we’ll be pleasantly surprised, but we expect that there’s a reason this one has been delayed so often.

‘300: Rise of an Empire’ stars Sullivan Stapleton, Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green, and Lena Headey, and finally opens on March 7, 2014.
