[Movies] 13 min preview of 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE

On February 4th, a special screening of the movie 300 was shown in 10 cities across North-America. Fans  (like me!) that attended the event were the first people to see the first 13 minutes of the very much anticipated 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE in IMAX 3D. The full movie is scheduled to be released on March 7th. Here's the full description (from what I remember) of the first 13 minutes:


Before the preview, the actress that plays Queen Gorgo, Lena Headey greeted us in a video. I don't remember what she said exactly, except that it been 7 years since the first movie came out.

We first see the same scene in the first movie where King Leonidas is dead amid his men. The Persian God Xerxes stands over him and swings an axe at Leonidas head (we don't actually see the decapitation). Next, we see an army of greeks listening to Queen Gorgo. She tells the story of the Battle of Marathon: in the epic battle scene between the Greeks wearing blue capes vs the Persians, several deaths are shown in slow motion with blood splashing everywhere! ( The visuals are AMAZING in that scene).

During the battle, a character named Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton) shoots an arrow in the Persian King's chest. The King was in a boat while Themistocles was standing on the shore.( He really got lucky!) Queen Gorgo tells us that is was a mistake since he should have killed the King's son Xerxes instead.

The next scene takes place in the Persian Palace: Xerxes and Artemisia (Eva Green is as beautiful as always) are next to the King. He still have the arrow in his chest. He tells Xerxes to leave the Greeks alone before Artemisia pulls out the arrow and let him die. She consoles Xerxes and tells him that he should become a God to defeat the Greeks.

Xerxes goes to a temple and submerge himself in golden water. When he comes out of it, he becomes the weird looking God that he is in the first movie.  We then see several short scenes where everyone (friends and mentors of Xerxes) is murdered in the palace except Artemisia. Xerxes goes to the  palace's balcony and gives a speech about taking revenge on the Greeks. THE END

The whole 13 minutes preview was amazing. I can't WAIT to see the full movie in March!
