The new sneak peek shows many scenes from the movie, including one which sees Themistocles taking down Darius as the young Xerxes looks on.
A new featurette is unleashed ahead of "300: Rise of an Empire" theatrical release this coming Friday, March 7. It features commentaries from producers Deborah and Zack Snyder as well as actor Sullivan Stapleton. New footage from the movie is also displayed.
At one point, Themistocles (Stapleton) is seen taking aim at Darius (Yigal Naor) with his bow and the arrow lands right on the target. It all happens as Darius' son, the young Xerxes, is nearby watching in horror. Rodrigo Santoro from the first film is back to reprise his role as Xerxes.
The film will pit ambitious Themistocles against wicked Xerxes who is backed up by Persian vengeful commander Artemisia (Eva Green). The two massive forces meet in an intense fight, concurrent with the battle of Thermopylae previously displayed in the first film.
