Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have revealed new character posters for the upcoming action adventure “300: Rise of an Empire,” the prequel to the 2006 blockbuster, “300.”
Launched specifically for this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, California, the posters individually feature the characters Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton), Artemesia (Eva Green), the Spartan Queen, Gorgo (Lena Headey), Aeskylos (Hans Matheron) and the Persian King, Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro).
Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel “Xerxes,” and told in the breathtaking visual style of “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 Artemesia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
The film is directed by Noam Murro, from a screenplay by Zack Snyder & Kurt Johnstad.
Opening across the Philippines in March 2014, “300: Rise of an Empire” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
