The latest one-sheet (of six posters in total) features a first look at Jack O’Connell

Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel ‘Xerxe’ from a screenplay by Zack Snyder
and Kurt Johnstad
, the upcoming action adventure also stars Sullivan Stapleton
as Themistokles; Eva Green

reprises her starring role from 300
as the Spartan Queen, Gorgo; Hans Matheson
stars as Aeskylos; David Wenham
returns as Dilios, and Rodrigo Santoro

It will be interesting to see how fans will react to the follow-up to Zack Snyder’s critically acclaimed 300 at Comic-Con in the days ahead.
The first chapter in the 300 saga still holds strong.
300: Rise of an Empire
is scheduled for a March 7th, 2014 release.
After its victory over Leonidas’ 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes’ army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land.
