300:RISE OF AN EMPIRE, the follow-up to Zack Snyder's masterpiece, showcased a beautiful trailer yesterday and showed some returning characters. This movie really seems like it will deepen the mythology and provide larger context to the events in 300 as well as tell its own exciting action packed story.

#25 shows the pit guy who infamously got kicked into the pit
#61 shows Daxos, the leader of the Arcadians
#62 shows the guy who yelled "Spartans lay down your weapons"

Also there was enough blood shown to almost make it a red band trailer (Look at screenshots #7, #8, #63, #64 and #70)
