The 1st trailer is out, but this movie isn't due out until next year.

BUMMER!

I believe so. Maybe it's a standard troop color, vs the elite color of red from the 1st movie.

I think the film is going to portray the battle with the Athenian navy and the Persian Navy. Overall it is good to see Eva Green again in film, though I thought 300 was one of those films that did not need a sequel...

Its about the Battle of Artemisium, a naval battle fought at the same time as Thermopylae. As a historian, all I can do is shake my head.

Why, because someone is daring to present history as anything other than a procession of dry facts to memorise? I mean crikey, that kind of head-shakery is even less appropriate here; we're talking about the Ancient Greeks, their entire conception of history was as a mythological construct, so why is it such an affront to certain types of academics for us to create our own mythological version of their history?

Man, if physicists were as uptight about the portrayal of our field in mass-market genre entertainment as historians, we'd never be able to watch anything - hell, we'd never even be able to watch Star Trek.

Just pointing this out, 300 was based more on the comic 300 than the actual historical events. 300: Rise of an Empire is a sequel to the comic 300. Thus history doesn't really matter. It's a comic.

The "300" part of the title seems very silly, or are there going to be 300 ships in this movie?
