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. This film pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemesia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.”

The cast will feature Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Callan Mulvey, Hans Matheson, Jack O’Connell, and more. The cast will also include various actors from the first film, like Lena Headey, Rodrigo Santoro, and David Wenham, reprising their roles.

300: Rise of An Empire is set to premiere on March 7.
