300: Rise of an Empire

(2014)

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 Artemesia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.

While it took almost exactly seven years to get this follow-up to 2007's 300 off the ground, the box office numbers prove that there is still an audience waiting for stylized action like this. 300 director Zack Snyder co-wrote the script for both movies along with Kurt Johnstad, but, the filmmaker is certainly busy with other endeavors at the moment, namely Batman Vs. Superman, which starts production this spring.
