The follow up to director Zack Snyder's 2006 movie is based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster 300.
This new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. 300: Rise of an Empire pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemesia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
Directed by Noam Murro off a script by Zack Snyder and Kurt Johstad, 300: Rise of an Empire stars Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, Rodrigo Santoro, David Wenham, Igal Nao, Callan Mulvey, Jack O'Connell and Andrew Tiernan. The film is scheduled for theatrical release on March 7th, 2014.
