If there’s been a void of blood, battles, and excessive use of CGI in your life as of late, then prepare to get that void fulfilled with this first trailer of 300: Rise of a Empire. This film will be a bookend prequel/sequel to Zack Snyder’s 300, as it follows Themistocles, an Athenian warrior, during The Battle of Artemisium. The film’s events will take place before, during, and after 300. Additionally it will also give a bit of a backstory on the film’s antagonist, Xerses. Look for it to hit theaters March 7th, 2014.
