Its March that’s means good movies are going to start being release as of now and starting that line-up is no other than 300: Rise of an Empire which is a sequel to 2006 breathtaking visual style 300. I know a lot of people are pumped up for this movie and frankly so am I. This time around its different but similar to the first, staying true to the original. As Greek general Themistokles attempt to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. They are at war with the Persians led by mortal turn god Xerxes.

Noam Murro direct the sequel which he said is not a prequel or sequel which is redundant because the name it’s called, pretty much stated that it’s a sequel and it follows the same story line. This is Murro first big budget film so I hope he doesn’t ruin the franchise, which is gonna be pretty hard to do. The trailer looks epic, the battles scenes delivers with all the effect which half of it really isn’t necessary but makes for a good movie. I just hope that this movie has less slow motion scenes and more Spartans. 300 may not be the most critical acclaimed movie with its over the top effects but its sure gonna bring in the millions.
Obviously this is going to come out on top at the box office this week.

If you want to be throuroughly entertained I would advice to go see this movie and comment on what you thought of it.

  1. Rise of an Empire actually covers what happens in Greece while the battle of 300 is going on. Leonidas fought the battle at the Hot Gates to give Greece the time they needed to mobilize the army, which is why this is neither sequel or prequel. If you want to read a great book about it try Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield. It’s probably gonna seem a little dry, but its very good. I haven’t had a chance to see Rise of an Empire, but 300 is one of my favorite movies. Also an interesting side fact: they think Esther was married to Xerxes! How crazy is that?
