A Wave & Sword on the Latest Poster for '300: Rise of an Empire'
And the sea turned to blood… There is no tagline on this poster, but it's kind of epic enough on its own not to need one. Warner Bros has unveiled a new poster for the 300 sequel 300: Rise of an Empire, directed by Noam Murro. Sullivan Stapleton stars in the movie as Greek general Themistocles, seen on the poster standing in front of a gigantic dark red wave. It's fairly dead-on imagery, but cool to see used so starkly for this kind of poster. A change in the marketing tone (from this) since it was delayed to early 2014? Perhaps. With Zack Snyder's Man of Steel about to arrive, we might finally see the trailer. Check this out, watch here.
Noam Murro (Smart People) directs 300: Rise of an Empire (formerly The Battle of Artemisia), based on Frank Miller's upcoming prequel graphic novel Xerxes, and adapted by Zack Snyder (director of 300) and Kurt Johnstad (writer of 300 and Act of Valor). Greek general Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton) attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemesia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy. Warner Bros is releasing 300: Rise of an Empire everywhere in 3D on March 7th, 2014 early next year.
