I’m of the understanding that I’m going to absolutely 300: Rise of an Empire. It’s written and produced by Zack Snyder, and it looks EXACTLY THE SAME! I’ve been getting a lot of grief from people about it being made, but I loved the first one and there’s nothing different looking from this one, other than Eva Green being a complete bad ass. Bring it on!
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.
