Oh look, it’s two more character posters for Noam Murro’s “300: Rise of an Empire”! This time around it’s Sullivan Stapleton, the film’s male lead, getting ready to seize his glory, while Rodrigo Santoro does his evil Xerxes thing and tries to eat our soul. Or something. Dude is monstrously scary.
Check out the posters, check them outers.
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 Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
Starring Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, and Rodrigo Santoro.
It’s still Sparta next year, March 7 2014.
