Mere moments after a new trailer dropped for director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, the multi-hyphenate took to Twitter to debut the first poster from another of his upcoming projects, 300: Rise of an Empire. Snyder will be producing the sequel; at the helm is Noam Murro (Smart People). We know that the sequel to 300 will feature a sea battle between the Greeks and the invading Persians. Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom) steps into the sandals this time as Greek general Themistocles, who leads his soldiers against the vast army of the self-proclaimed god, Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and his own general, Artemisia (Eva Green).

300: Rise of an Empire, also starring Lena Headey, opens August 2nd. Hit the jump to check out the poster and be sure to take a look at these previously released images from the film if you haven’t already.

Scope out the poster below, via Snyder himself:

'300: Rise of an Empire' heads to new seas

'300: Rise of an Empire' takes on a new look and philosophy from the original '300.'

Story Highlights

Sparta's warriors may have waged fierce land battles in the 2006 box-office hit 300, but they hadn't even gotten their feet wet yet.

In the parallel film 300: Rise of an Empire (out Aug. 2), which takes place at about the same time as its predecessor, Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) and his common-man troops fight the rest of the Persian army at sea.

The aquatic setting allows for a completely new dynamic — even if both films take their stylized look from the original graphic novel by Frank Miller.

Empire "is tied visually to the original,'' says director Noam Murro, but with so much happening within small boats, "there is a whole different choreography of fighting and war.''

The sea battle also allows the scale of the movie to change. The first 300 took place primarily on a narrow pass known as the "Hot Gates," where the Spartans sought tactical advantage due to their significantly smaller numbers. But Empire "happens over time in many different locations," says Murro. "The opportunities for the six distinct battles are even greater with different locations and tactics.''

The David-vs.-Goliath theme remains intact, however.

"The few against the many is still here," says Murro. "It's hundreds vs. hundreds of thousands. It's about taking on the mightiest power of all with wisdom and tactics."

In this case, the mightiest power is primarily led by Artemesia (Eva Green), the vengeful commander of the Persian navy, who is second in command to the mortal-turned-god leader Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro). She has the added incentive of seeking to settle a blood score against the Greeks who killed her family when she was a child.

"She does most of Xerxes' dirty work in this film. She's seeking revenge, and she does it well," says Stapleton. "She's a force to be reckoned with."

Amen, says Murro: "She's got sex appeal, she's ruthless and conniving. All the things that kill men. And she has a sword. I wouldn't mess with her."

Zack Snyder, who directed the 2006 film, co-wrote the screenplay for Rise of an Empire and incorporated thematic differences on everything from the hero-general to the people he leads. Themistokles is a more complicated leader than the original's Spartan King Leonidas (Gerard Butler).

"Themistokles is battle-scarred and a warrior, but at the same time he's a politician," says Murro. "He's not the king. He has to rule in a democracy. It's a different complexity of character."

His fighting men — drawn from humble citizenry —— are not the born-and-bred fighters that the Spartans are either.

"These people don't want to fight, they even say that they are not Spartans," says Murro. "They are common people who have to do this to not be in under the rule of a dictator. This is not a duplicate movie or a cookie-cutter. It's a very different story to tell in keeping with the original flavor of 300."

First Look: ’300: Rise of an Empire’

Posted on Monday, April 8th, 2013 by Russ Fischer

Director Zack Snyder‘s adaptation of Frank Miller‘s graphic novel 300 turned into a surprise hit in 2006, and ever since then there has been speculation about the sequel, or prequel. Miller quickly went to work on a related graphic novel, and several years ago Snyder and his co-writer Kurt Johnstad got to work on a script.

It took some time, but director Noam Murro was eventually set to direct what became called 300: Rise of an Empire, with Sullivan Stapleton set to star as Greek general Themistokles in a story that parallels the original 300.

That image above is the first look at a battle from the new film, and below we’ve got a shot of Stapleton in character. (Hint: he looks like he belongs in 300.)

USA Today has these images, and the description that the film features an “aquatic setting” that “allows for a completely new dynamic.” Clearly, based on these images, this film is related to 300 — the link is obviously something beyond just the imitation of 300 that became common in the past half-dozen years.

Murro tells the paper that this film is a much bigger undertaking than the first.

[Rise of an Empire] happens over time in many different locations. The opportunities for the six distinct battles are even greater with different locations and tactics… The few against the many is still here. It’s hundreds vs. hundreds of thousands. It’s about taking on the mightiest power of all with wisdom and tactics.

The film also features Eva Green as Artemesia, descried as “the vengeful commander of the Persian navy.” (Also once part of the title of the film — this movie was first called Xerxes, then Battle of Artemesia.) She’s the military leader just under Xerxes (played by a returning Rodrigo Santoro).

Below is a shot of Stapleton as he appears in the film. 300: Rise of an Empire is set for release on August 2.

In 300 - Rise Of An Empire wird wieder geschlachtet

Auf der Website von 300 – Rise of an Empire wurden neue Bilder zum Sequel des Schlachtenspektakels von Zack Snyder veröffentlicht.

300: Rise Of An Empire handelt von der Seeschlacht von Artemisium, die im August 480 v. Chr. zeitgleich zur berühmten Schlacht bei den Thermopylen stattfand, die in 300 dargestellt wird. Leonidas und seine Spartaner werden bei 300 – Battle Of Artemisia nicht zu sehen sein, dafür ist Persekönig Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) eine der Hauptfiguren. Gegen ihn und sein persisches Heer kämpft Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton), der mit einer zahlenmäßig weit unterlegenen griechischen Flotte eine Armada von 1200 persischen Schiffen aufhalten muss. Wir haben ein paar neue Bilder zum Sequel für euch, die unter anderem Eva Green zeigen.

Aufgetaucht sind die Promo-Bilder für 300 – Rise of an Empire auf der Homepage des Films, wo sich auch umfangreichere Charakterbeschreibungen finden. Die Fortsetzung des Hits von Zack Snyder wird von Noam Murro (Smart People) inszeniert und wartet neben Eva Green auch mit Lena Headey auf. Am 1. August startet die Schlacht in den deutschen Kinos.
