If the new battery does not need some charge too, check for corroded frayed loose battery terminal wires to starter and grounds to frame & engine grounds.

A bad battery connection is the likely problem but if the anti-theft system has kicked in it won't start.

Are you using the correct key with a chip in it? Without a correct key you won't be able to start the car.
