Sullivan Stapleton can be seen in the trailer for “300: Rise of an Empire” as General Themistocles. He leads his men in to battle against the Persians led by the god Xerxes and Persian commander Artemisia.

Artemisia addresses the troops:

“Today we will dance across the backs of dead Greeks,”

Themistocles is not backing down without fight as he shouts:

“We chose to die on our feet, rather than live on our knees!”

Rodrigo Santoro reprises his role as the villanous Xerxes, Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo and newcomer Eva Green portays Artemisia. “300: Rise of an Empire” will be released on March 7, 2014.

Whilst promoting “300: Rise of an Empire” at San Diego Comic-Con International 2013, Latino-Review caught up with Stapleton and director Noam Murro for an interview.
