The first taste to the visually stylistic 300: Rise of an Empire, is now available thanks to Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures. In it, Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro again), fresh from his victory against Leonidas in “300,” turns his attention to making the rest of Greece bow to his will. Helping him in this lofty goal — and adding a new element to this war — is the lovely but cruel Artemesia (Eva Green) commander of his Navy. The Greeks, having been shown the way by the fallen Spartans, rally around Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton) to resist the spectacular Persian forces.
The trailer below is light on the feast sure to come but nonetheless it is enough to get excited over. Check it out!
300: Rise of an Empire stars Lena Headey, Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green, Sullivan Stapleton, David Wenham and Jack O’Connell.
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 hacks into US and UK theaters on March 7, 2014.

Under all the flash, is there any historical accuracy to it?

Does it really matter?

I think I read it was supposed to have a late 2012 release but it got pushed back for some reason or another..?

FX look suspect.

More sweaty gay wrestling. No thank you.

Eva Green is a nice addition.

I’d usually agree with this sentiment but she looks a bit too haggard to me to think her sexiness will play a significant role.

Doesn’t look like new ground is being broken, probably better off to just watch 300 again.
