For all the 300 movie fans of light Greek history meets heavy CGI, slow motion, fantasy, elaborate battle scenes, and blood, blood, and more blood there's a sequel coming in March 2014 titled '300 Rise of an Empire'
While the first 300 film mostly focused on the Spartans in the fictionalized depiction of the Battle of Thermopylae between the Greeks and the Persians, the new movie shifts attention to the Persians and takes place before, during, and after the events of 300. Rodrigo Santoro returns as King Xerxes of Persia, and Eva Green (Casino Royale) joins the franchise as Artemisia. Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) also reprises her role as Queen Gorgo of Sparta. Zack Snyder, who directed the original 300 and Man of Steel produced the 300 sequel. Noam Murro (Smart People) directed 300: Rise of an Empire.
300: Rise of an Empire was originally scheduled for a summer 2013 release but is now set to hit theaters on March 7, 2014.
