Seize Your Glory: Two Intense New '300: Rise of the Empire' Posters
Seize your glory! You must scream that line at the top of your lungs when you read it. While we've already featured numerous posters and trailers for this sequel previously, another two new posters have arrived and they're kind of intense to look at. Warner Bros has debuted two new 300: Rise of the Empire posters (via IMPAwards) for the Noam Murro-directed action sequel due out in early March, both of which feature Sullivan Stapleton as Themistocles with a big, bloody sword. Not featured anywhere is Eva Green, but that's fine, because these look badass. Let's hope this is as good as 300, and based on the trailers it may be.
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 coming up soon.

I'm tellin ya I got my finger on the pulse. I called that the other posters were a bit corny because they were ham handedly trying to recreate the wide mouth scream face of 300. I said they should go for a less wide mouth motif with less frenzy. Only butler could pull that off. Sure enough they release these posters which was exactly what I was talking about. Who da man?! I da man!
