The first trailer for "300: Rise of an Empire"— the long-awaited sequel to the 2006 epic — is here.
This time Noam Murro steps in as director as Zack Snyder takes to producer and writer. Snyder has his hands full with the "Man of Steel" franchise at Warner Bros.
Murro doesn't have a lot of credits to his name with his last film being 2008's "Smart People."
The film stars Eva Green ("Casino Royale") as Persian Queen Artemisia going to war with the Greeks led by general Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton).
The first trailer is full of ships, explosions, sword fights, arrows, and plenty of death, but no outright scene that has us screaming "madness."
"300: Rise of an Empire" comes to theaters next March.
