Women can be a force to be reckoned with too. In the second trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire that concept is driven home as on both sides of the coin women play a more prominent role. On the side of the Greeks, Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey) again rouses her countrymen to unite and fight with seemingly better results (she was besmirched the first time she tried in “300“) and on the side of the Persians, Artemisia (Eva Green) takes an active fighting role leading the Navy for Xerxes. Much of what is to come is again muted, although I think it is safe to say the finished product will absolutely be furious, bloody and artsy. See for yourself in the embedded trailer above.

300: Rise of an Empire stars Lena Headey, Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green, Sullivan Stapleton, David Wenham and Jack O’Connell.
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.
