So far – my favourite character poster for 300: Rise of an Empire
movie! As you’re about to see in the rest of this report, it’s all about Rodrigo Santoro
and his King Xerxes. In case you forgot, Noam Murro
‘s upcoming action adventure will also cover some of the backstory of Xerxes, and will explain how he became the God King
. Head inside to check him out…
Also starring Sullivan Stapleton
, Eva Green
, Callan Mulvey
, Hans Matheson
, Jack O’Connell
, Lena Headey
and David Wenham
, the movie is set to hit theaters on March 7th, 2014.
Murro directs this new chapter of the epic saga (and a follow-up to the 2007 film 300
) from a script written by Zack Snyder
and Kurt Johnstad
, which takes the action to a fresh battlefield – on the sea.
In other words:
Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war and the movie pits him against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemesia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
In case you’ve missed our previous reports, here’s more character posters with Calisto
