We should be seeing a lot from Noam Murro's 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE soon, starting today with the first official poster from the prequel, which releases next spring. A bloody tidal wave threatens the film's lead, Sullivan Stapleton, who is looking quite morose at the prospect of bathing in all that red stuff. Can't blame him.
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 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, and Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
Produced by Zack Snyder, 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE also stars Eva Green, Lena Headey and Rodrigo Santoro. It opens in March 2014.
