The follow-up to Zack Synder's 2007 ode to slow-motion sword clashes picks up where the original "300" left us, with the power-hungry "god-king" Xerxes back on the warpath.

The trailer for "300: Rise of an Empire" features Rodrigo Santoro, reprising his role as Xerxes, along with "Casino Royale's" Eva Green and Lena Headey of "Game of Thrones" fame. Sullivan Stapleton plays Greek general Themistocles.

"Rise of an Empire" hits theaters March 7, 2014.
