300: Rise of an Empire – Meet The Heroes in Latest Featurette (Video)


Just a few hours ago, we showed you the newest extended television spot for the latest installation in the 300 franchise entitled 300: Rise of an Empire. Now, we have a brand new featurette for the film.

Last week, we showed you a featurette that featured Artemisia and Xerxes, the two main villains of the film. Now, we bring you a featurette that shines a light on the hero of the new story, the general Themistokles.

Themistokles, played in the film by Strike Back’s Sullivan Stapleton, is the general of the Greek army. After the death of the Mighty 300, he tells Queen Gorgo, King Leonidas’ widow, that his sacrifice would not be forgotten. He tells her to avenge him.

It would seem as if the story really starts to kick into high gear when Themistokles makes a move that would ultimately make him a legend. During a battle, he sees an opportunity to take down his opponent. It just so happened that this opponent was King Darius of Persia, the father of Xerxes. After this, Xerxes would transform into the God-King we have come to know.

In the featurette, Writer/Producer Zack Snyder, Producer Deborah Snyder, and Director Noam Murro along with Sullivan Stapleton himself, take a closer look at Themistokles.

Here is a look at the latest featurette for 300: Rise of an Empire.

 

The film, directed by Noam Murro, stars Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey, Eva GreenRodrigo SantoroSullivan StapletonJack O’Connell, and many more.
