Warner Brothers has releases a new featurette on 300: Rise of an Empire. Maniacs, meet Greek general Themistokles. Will he indeed emerge as the legend they are promising?
Synopsis: 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 Artemisia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
This film has been rated R for strong sustained sequences of stylized bloody violence throughout, a sex scene, nudity and some language.

300:  RISE OF AN EMPIRE features Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, Rodrigo Santoro, Callan Mulvey, David Wenham, Jack O’Connell, Andrew Tiernan,  Igal Naor, and Andrew Pleavin.

300:  RISE OF AN EMPIRE In 3D and 2D in select theaters  and IMAX on March 7th, 2014.
