300: Rise of an Empire Artemisia Image

We’ve already seen a two-and-a-half-minute trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire, the much anticipated sequel to Zack Snyder’s 2006 stylized hit about King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and his brave 300 Spartans. But if you fear a trailer giving away too much and that first trailer is a little lengthy for your taste, here’s another option.

The UK trailer for Rise of an Empire has been released, and it clocks in at only about a minute. The movie follows the Battle of Artemisium, another battle involving the Persians, led by the God-King Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), that unfolds around the same time that 300‘s Battle of Thermopylae. It sees Xerxes’ commander of the Persian navy Artemisia (Eva Green) doing battle on the seas against Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton), a Greek general attempting to unite all of Greece. Lena Headey also makes an appearance in the movie and in this trailer, reprising her role as Queen Gorgo.

You can check out the new UK trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire below.

Eva Green

While Warner Brothers and Legendary Picture try and figure out who will step up and be the strong male lead in their 300 prequel, titled 300: Battle of Artemisia, they’ve gone out and found who they want to play the female lead.

It’s being reported that negotiations have began with French actress Eva Green for the job, which would see her playing Artemisia, a “ruthless, gold-covered goddess” who pushes the God-king Xerxes to build his massive army.

It may not be much, but it appears as though two of the stars of Zack Snyder’s 300 may in fact be back for its sequel.

Entitled 300: Battle Of Artemisia, producer Bernie Goldmann told Movies.com that there is a pair of roles set in place in the film for its original stars, Lena Heady and Gerard Butler. The two starred in the original as the husband and wife who spearhead the film’s narrative, which was both surrounded by a true story (based on the Frank Miller graphic novel), but never worried about expanding a story or facts to make it more, well, cinematic.

With ‘Akira’ Set, Warner Brothers Chooses Director For ‘300’ Prequel ‘Battle Of Artemisia’

We’ve been hearing about a 300 prequel/sequel/spinoff for a while now, but we knew it would be a long while before we actually saw it because creator Frank Miller still had to work on the graphic novel for which the movie would be based. In fact, it was almost one year ago that Zack Snyder confirmed that he was working on the script for the prequel, and we haven’t heard much of anything major since then.

At that time it was unclear whether or not Snyder would return to direct the movie, which is now titled 300: Battle of Artemisia (previously titled Xerxes, which is the name of Miller’s graphic novel), though it sounded like he very much wanted to, saying “It’s really going to depend on what the studio wants to do…I don’t have a directing deal in place but we are writing it, so call it intent. If there was a crime they could probably convict me.” But we now know that what the studio (Warner Brothers) wanted, was for Snyder to take on their reboot of Superman, titled Man of Steel, which will star Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, and Michael Shannon, to name a few.
