The first official poster has been released for the quasi-historic action movie 300: Rise of An Empire, looking perfectly in line with the first film’s look (only it’s more blue-oriented than red). The 300: Rise of an Empire will pick up where the first one left off – with the Persian God-king Xerxes continuing his assault on Greece.
Unfortunately for Xerxes, Leonidas and the 300 Spartans that fell in the first movie is not the only hero they have to contend with, as the home team is now being led by Greek General Themistokles, who is charged with uniting his people in defiance of the Persian invaders (note: .
The official 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 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.”
