300: Rise of an Empire is an upcoming 2014 Hollywood film directed by Noam Murro. It is a follow-up to the 2007 film 300, taking place before, during, and after the events of that film.
The cast includes Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Callan Mulvey, Hans Matheson, and Jack O’Connell. The cast also includes Lena Headey, Rodrigo Santoro, and David Wenham, reprising their roles from the first film.
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.
‘300: Rise of an Empire’ movie hits theaters March 7, 2014 in 3D and IMAX 3D.
