Check out the latest poster for Noam Murro’s “300: Rise of an Empire”, featuring “Strike Back’s” Sullivan Stapleton standing all heroically and such in front of a rising tide … which looks suspiciously bloody. I’m guessing that’s on purpose, since much of the movie takes place on the water as the Persian Navy invades Greece. Then at one point a horse shows up. No, really, watch the trailer again if you didn’t the first time ’round.
And look, it moves, too!
After its victory over Leonidas’ 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes’ army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land.
Starring Sullivan Stapleton, Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green, and Lena Headey.
