A third trailer has been released for 300: Rise of an Empire, the follow-up/parallel/companion to the 2006 Zack Snyder hit, 300. This new trailer takes a step out of the time the movie is set in, and uses the Black Sabbath classic “War Pigs” to spice things up a bit more.
The movie follows Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton), as he attempts to lead the Greeks against god-king Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), his immense Persian army, and the deadly commander of the Persian navy Artemesia (Eva Green) after the victory over Leonidas and his brave 300.
