This Is Sparta! Well the first poster for Noam Murro‘s 300:Rise Of An Empire which shows the 300 sequel storywise and visually the story continues where it left off.
The visual/design look of the poster certainly shows Frank Miller’s style that Zack Snyder adopted Murro looks like he’s continuing the style which is a sensible move to keep the momentum going. Some footage was revealed at Cinemacon and the feedback is very stylized and epic side of the film is been stepped up. Murro has said changes will be seen in the fight scenes which we’re intrigued to see as the battle ground this time will it mean literally warriors jumping ship?
300:Rise Of An Empire picks up right after the event of the first film with Xerxes the Persian God Like king (Rodrigo Santoro) continues his surge into capturing Greece and takes his fight to the Seas. He leaves his assault in the capable hands of his all conquering female Naval commander Artemesia (Eva Green).Greece’s lifeline is left in the hands of Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) who attempts to unite his nation and prevent the aggressive Persian gaining a new country under their ever increasing Empire.
If your disappointed that Snyder is not directing whilst he’s directing Man Of Steel he has actually written the script with David Wenham the other returning 300 cast member with Lena Headey, Jack OConnell, with 300:Rise Of An Empire sailing into UK&Irish cinemas 8th August (USA 2nd August). Below the the new post we have another new image which shows Artemesia (Eva Green) below that we have the films official synopssis.
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.
