2013 has been a great year for the movie industry. Its looking like Hollywood has even more greatness in store for us in 2014. It is predicted that this is to be the biggest year for sequels we have seen for some time. All of the epic stories that made their debut in 2013 are returning with a vengeance next year. We cannot be any more enthusiastic.
300: Rise of an Empire (March 7th 2014)
Director: Noam Murro Cast: Sullivan Stapleton, Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green
Based on the graphic novel XERXES by Frank Miller, 300 RISE OF AN EMPIRE is a new chapter in the 300 universe. A brand new battle field is born when the Greek General Themistocles pursues a dream of uniting all of Greece with an army that will surely change the outcome of the war. In this epic sequel to 300, Themistocles is pitted against the massive invading Persian force being led by the “Gods” Xerxes and Artemisia. The battle between an alliance of Greek city-states and the Persian empire is set in 480 B.C. and will cover many of the battles included in the war such as The Battle Of Salamis, and the Battle Of Marathon. The movie will also delve into Xerxes past and shed some light on how he became the “god-king”.
After the success of the first 300, this is sure to be one of the most anticipated motion pictures within the next few years.
