300: Rise of an Empire Trailer

That big wave of red certainly makes it look like a historically significant period piece.

I had been operating on the assumption that this was a prequel, since that's what The Goddamn Frank Miller has been talking about over the years, but no - there's Lena Headey, here's dead Gerard Butler...this is a sequel. I am disappointed not to see any strange ogres, hunchbacks or giant mutant elephants, but Xerxes' face looks plastic surgerier.

The original is always fun to look at, but strangely, I feel almost nothing about this trailer. Watch it after the jump and tell me if I'm missing anything. (I already saw Eva Green sex scenes in The Dreamers.)
