We’re one week away from the upcoming 300: Rise of an Empire, and I’m getting pretty excited. The Noam Murro-directed sequel looks like it’s continuing where Zack Snyder left off in the best way possible; since it looks exactly the same. Some people are trashing that, but if you’re a fan of the first film, isn’t that what you want!? Anywho, below is a new featurette that focuses on the villains of the film. Check it out below!
Here’s the official synopsis for 300: Rise of an Empire:
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.
300: Rise of an Empire is due out March 7th, 2014. The film is being directed by Noam Murro and stars: Lena Headey, Sullivan Stapelton, Rodrigo Santoro and Eva Green.
