Zack Snyder is going to unleash Man of Steel on the world this weekend, but the movie which helped him find real mainstream success was 300. A famous tale of Spartan resilience transposed into a super-stylised slow and fast-mo world, 300 didn’t spawn spin-offs so much as it did relentless parodies.
But next spring we’ll be getting it’s first true follow-up in the form of 300: Rise of an Empire, the first trailer for which has just been released. The plot dances around that of the original and the battles have taken on a very naval theme, with Eva Green doing her best impression of an evil general while serving as the movie’s biggest name.
Snyder is in a producer’s role this time, but 300: Rise of an Empire is consistent in style with its predecessor. Check back for more details and clips as they arise.
