New 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE Promo Image On Concept Art Book Cover; Composer Hired

The official cover for 300: Rise Of An Empire - The Art Of The Film has found its way online, featuring a new promo image for the upcoming sequel. Additionally, composer Junkie XL has been hired to score the movie.

Thanks to StarkIndustries.Ru, we have the official cover art for the tie-in book 300: Rise Of An Empire - The Art Of The Film, which was written by Peter Aperlo. The book, which features concept art from Warner Bros.' sequel to 2007's Frank Miller adaptation 300, also showcases a foreword by director Noam Murro and afterword by producer Zack Snyder. The book's official description reads as follows. "Based on Frank Miller's latest graphic novel Xerxes, 300: Rise of an Empire is produced by Gianni Nunnari, Mark Canton, Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder and Bernie Goldmann, and directed by Noam Murro from a screenplay by Zack Snyder & Kurt Johnstad. Told in the breathtaking visual style of 300 this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield--on the sea--as Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. 300: Rise of an Empire pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemisia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy."

In other 300: Rise Of An Empire news, composer Junkie XL/Tom Holkenborg (who most recently collaborated with Hans Zimmer on The Dark Knight Rises and Man Of Steel) has been tapped to score the follow-up, according to Film Music Reporter. XL is also known for scoring Famke Janssen’s directorial debut Bringing Up Bobby. Federico Jusid was hired to score 300: Rise Of An Empire earlier this year, but backed out.

300: Rise Of An Empire stars Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green and Sullivan Stapleton. The film is set to hit theaters August 2nd.

Why couldn't they just make Ronin instead of raping a dead horse?

So what is the association with "300"? It made sense in the original GN and film but how does the number 300 make any sense here?

Why does this movie exist? I guarantee it'll be as bad if not worse than 300.
