We are just over a month and a half from the next chapter in Frank Miller’s epic tale, 300: Rise of an Empire. Earlier today, the people at Warner Bros. released a brand new theatrical trailer for the film.

Just in case you are not familiar with the premise of the new film, here is a look at the synopsis of the film courtesy of IMDb.com.

After its victory over Leonidas’ 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes’ army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land.”

There is no denying that Artemisia loves every single aspect of a violent battle.

“The ecstasy of steel and flesh, sweat of the muscle, rage, war.” She says.

We get a small glimpse of the last film as we see King Leonidas sprawl out on the ground, beaten and dead, along with the rest of the brave 300. Unfortunately, when one passes, there are those that are left behind.

So is the case with Queen Gorgo.

“Have I not given enough for your dream of a united Greece, Themistocles?” she asks. “A King, a Husband.”

Artemisia tells Xerxes that only a God can defeat the Greeks. She tells him that he will be a God-King, and a God he would become.

Come what may, Themistocles will be ready for them. All he asks of his men is that they “Seize their glory.”

Here is a look at the brand new theatrical trailer for the upcoming film 300: Rise of an Empire.

The film is being directed by Noam Murro, and will take place before, during, and after the events that played out in 300Zack Snyder, who directed and co-wrote the original film, worked with screenwriter Kurt Johnstad on the script for the film. Snyder will also serve as a producer of the project.

If the trailers are any indication of the film, there is one thing for sure; there will be just as much bloodshed, if not more, than in the original 300; so much so that the seas will run red. The visuals in the film are pretty stunning, and should the story hold up, the film is bound to be quite a blockbuster.

300: Rise of an Empire is scheduled to be released on March 7, 2014.
