300: Rise of an Empire, told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster 300, is a new chapter of the epic saga, which takes the action to a new battlefield-the sea.
The story pits the Greek general Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces, ruled by the mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and led by Artemisia, the vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
Knowing his only hope of defeating the overwhelming Persian armada will be to unite all of Greece, Themistokles ultimately leads the charge that will change the course of the war.
Adapted from a screenplay by Zack Snyder and Kurt Johnstad, based on Frank Miller's graphic novel "Xerxes," Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures' 300: Rise of an Empire was directed by Noam Murro. Produced by Gianni Nunnari, Mark Canton, Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder and Bernie Goldmann, with Thomas Tull, Frank Miller, Stephen Jones, Jon Jashni and Craig J. Flores serving as executive producers.
