“If death comes, my waterproof eyeliner is ready.” Warner Bros. has unveiled a new character sheet for 300 Rise of an Empire featuring Eva Green as Artemisia. In the follow-up to Zack Snyder’s 300, Themistocles battles an invading army of Persians under the mortal-turned-god, Xerxes. Rodrigo Santoro, Sullivan Stapleton, & Lena Headey also star. Rise of an Empire hits theaters March 7, 2013.
Based on Frank Miller’s latest 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.
