In case you are unfamiliar with the story of the epic film, here is the synopsis of the film courtesy of IMDB.com.
After its victory over Leonidas’ 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes’ army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land.”
Here is a look at the latest poster for the upcoming film 300: Rise of an Empire.
The film, which is being directed by Noam Murro, will take place before, during, and after the events that played out in 300. Zack Snyder, who directed and co-wrote the original film, collaborated with screenwriter Kurt Johnstad on the script. Snyder also serves as a producer of the project.
300: Rise of an Empire is scheduled to be released IMAX 3D, RealD 3D, and in Conventional Theaters on March 7, 2014.
