There be lots of fightin’ in these six clips from Noam Murro’s “300: Rise of an Empire,” the sequel to Zack Snyder’s “dudes just wanna have fun” movie from 2006. I still remember seeing that movie on the big ol sscreen and going pretty ga-ga over it. Who knew you could stretch a 30-minute movie into two hours just by slow-mo’ing everything? Zack Snyder did, apparently, and he hasn’t stopped since.
Check out all six battlin’ clips from “300: Rise of an Empire” below, those of you who enjoy checking out battlin’ clips from movies on Sundays.
Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes, and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. “300: Rise of an Empire” pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemesia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
Starring Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, and Rodrigo Santoro.
