Although we haven’t heard much about 300: Rise of an Empire since Warner Brothers decided to delay it and quietly released the first trailer, this week they have unveiled a new international trailer for the prequel. Although the story doesn’t have quite the same hook, the visuals at least look to be on par with the original and the naval battles also look impressive. That being said, it’s probably not a good sign that they’re using both Gerard Butler and Zack Snyder to sell the film when neither of them are really involved. 300: Rise of an Empire is directed by Noam Murro (Smart People) and hits theatres on March 7th, 2014. Check out the new trailer after the jump and see what you think.
