Warner Bros. has released a new promo poster and trailer preview for their badass looking new action film, 300: Rise of an Empire.
There's a campaign for the film where users can help get the new trailer to be released soon by tweeting out the hashtag #300Jointhebattle or connecting through Facebook. To keep track of how close the trailer is to being released, click here.
The movie was 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, and it looks like it's going to be even better than the first movie, which I really enjoyed.
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.
The movie is set to be released on August 2nd, 2013.
