First Trailer For 300: Rise Of An Empire

Posted by June 12, 2013 Comment

Zack Snyder was somewhat too busy with Superman to direct the second 300 film, Rise of an Empire, but he did co-write the screenplay with Kurt Johnstad. They’ve based the film on Xerxes, Frank Miller’s other story of semi-historical, semi-mythological warfare.

The new director is Noam Murro, and as you’ll see, he’s gone more or less for the same look as Snyder’s first picture.

I do love Eva Green. She’s her own woman and no mistake. Every one of her performances has been… idiosyncratic. Makes her a great pick for this larger-than-life fare.
