’300: Rise of an Empire’ Trailer Released

The violent trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire has been released, an adaptation of Frank Miller‘s as-yet-unreleased graphic novel, Xerxes.

We’ve embedded the trailer above–what do you think. The film comes out next March, a follow-up to 300 film and graphic novel. Miller described the graphic novel in an interview:

The time frame begins 10 years before ’300′ and the story starts with the Battle of Marathon, which was killer to draw, by the way, even if it was a lot of work. The lead character is Themistocles, who became warlord of Greece and built their navy. The story is very different than ’300′ in that it involves Xerxes’ search for godhood. The existence of gods are presupposed in this story and the idea is that he [is] well on his way to godhood by the end of the story.

Frank Miller Faces Occupy Wall Street Backlash

In an angry essay on his blog, author and graphic novelist Frank Miller recently blasted the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Here’s an excerpt: “Maybe, between bouts of self-pity and all the other tasty tidbits of narcissism you’ve been served up in your sheltered, comfy little worlds, you’ve heard terms like al-Qaeda and Islamicism. And this enemy of mine — not of yours, apparently – must be getting a dark chuckle, if not an outright horselaugh – out of your vain, childish, self-destructive spectacle. In the name of decency, go home to your parents, you losers. Go back to your mommas’ basements and play with your Lords Of Warcraft.Or better yet, enlist for the real thing. Maybe our military could whip some of you into shape.”

Miller’s attack on the “unruly mob” generated thousands of responses around the Internet, including more than 5,000 quotes on his own site. Using Storify, we’ve collected some of the backlash to the post by the author of 300 and Sin City. (Image via)
