Producer Zack Snyder shows off the first poster for director Noam Murro’s 300: Rise of an Empire, starring Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey and Rodrigo Santoro.
After more than two years of being referred to alternately as Xerxes and Battle of Artemisia, the follow-up to Legendary Pictures’ hit 2007 film 300 finally officially has a title — 300: Rise of an Empire.
Director Noam Murro’s still-untitled follow-up to the 2007 blockbuster 300 will open Aug. 2, 2013, going up against two other comics-based movies: the sequels to The Smurfs and RED. Warner Bros. also carved out May 10, 2013, for Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro’s hotly anticipated giant-monster movie.
British actor Jamie Blackley will play the young leader of a band of soldiers in director Noam Murro’s untitled follow-up to the 2007 blockbuster 300.
