Athens Will Burn on the Latest 300: Rise of an Empire Poster

Warner Bros. has released another new character poster for their upcoming 300: Rise of an Empire. This one features Rodrigo Santoro (The Last Stand, the upcoming The 33) returning as Xerxes and you can check it out below!

Directed by Noam Murro, the film stars Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, Rodrigo Santoro, Igal Naor, Callan Mulvey, Jack O’Connell and Andrew Tiernan. Based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel “Xerxes” and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster 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 Artemesia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.

300: Rise of an Empire opens in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters on March 7, 2014.
