Warner Bros. Pictures has released the 5th character poster for the epic action adventure 300: Rise of an Empire. Check out the posters below! The film is directed by Noam Murro, from a screenplay by Zack Snyder (Man of Steel) and Kurt Johnstad (300).
300: Rise of an Empire stars Sullivan Stapleton (Strike Back) as Themistokles and Eva Green (Dark Shadows, Casino Royale) as Artemisia.
Lena Headey reprises her starring role from “300” as the Spartan Queen, Gorgo; Hans Matheson (Clash of the Titans) stars as Aeskylos; David Wenham returns as Dilios, and Rodrigo Santoro stars again as the Persian King, Xerxes.
Based on the graphic novel Xerxes, by Frank Miller 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 (Santoro), and Artemesia (Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
