These are admittedly small bits, but offer cool new looks at the Athenians and the Persians who will fight it till the death much like the Spartans and the Persians in the first film. These videos are a few seconds long each and appear as “intros” to the various sections on the official website. I have embedded them all below for your express enjoyment so that you don’t have to navigate from section to section on the official site. They contain no sound.
The action here looks grittier than the highly stylized one presented in 300. It looks more rain soaked, blood drenched and mud splattered and there seem to be more soldiers fighting on either side in bigger battle fields (and on ships of course). It also looks like Sullivan Stapleton, in a departure from his predecessor Gerard Butler, will use the bow and arrow too to slaughter the Persians rather than just a sword and spear. Bring on the action!
