A new featurette for “300: Rise of an Empire” has been made available ahead of its release this coming Friday, Match 7. Fans of the blood thirsty movie series are treated with commentaries from producers Deborah and Zack Snyder as well as the star of the upcoming flick, Sullivan Stapleton.
“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.”
The sequel directed by Noam Murro will see the return of Rodrigo Santoro reprising his role as the villainous Xerxes, Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo and newcomer Eva Green portrays Artemisia.
