Warner bros. has released another Comic-Con character poster for 300: Rise of An Empire featuring Lena Headey in the role of the vengeful Queen Gorgo.
I enjoyed the first movie, and I hope this sequel is just as entertaining. I really liked what I saw in the first trailer for the film, and I can't wait to see more at Comic-Con later this week.
Noam Murro is directing the film from a screenplay written by Zack Snyder and Kurt Johnstad. It's based on the graphic novel, Xerxes, by Frank Miller.
It's set to be released on August 2nd, 2013, and here's the synopsis:
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 Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures present, a Cruel and Unusual Films/Mark Canton/Gianni Nunnari Production, “300: Rise of an Empire.” The action adventure stars Sullivan Stapleton (Gangster Squad) 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.
