Warner Bros announced today that -in a testament to the film, and the studio’s confidence in it – “300 : Rise of an Empire” will be previewed weeks ahead of it’s release to select cities across the states in February.
On Feb 4, in 10 cities, Warner will play the first 13-minutes of the movie.
The footage “will be unveiled—complete and uncut in 3D IMAX—prior to the first film’s screening”, says the presser. “The cities in which the events will be held are: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Boston, Dallas, Washington DC, Phoenix, Toronto and Montreal.”
Told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a new battlefield—on the sea. “300: Rise of an Empire” pits the Greek general Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces, ruled by their God-King Xerxes, and led by Artemisia, the vengeful commander of the Persian navy. Knowing his only hope of defeating the overwhelming Persian armada will be to unite all of Greece, Themistokles leads the charge that will change the course of the war.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures present, a Cruel and Unusual Films/Mark Canton/Gianni Nunnari Production, “300: Rise of an Empire.” The action adventure stars Sullivan Stapleton (“Gangster Squad”) as Themistokles and Eva Green (“Dark Shadows,” “Casino Royale”) as Artemisia. Reprising their roles from “300” are: Lena Headey as the Spartan Queen, Gorgo; David Wenham as Dilios; Andrew Tiernan as Ephialtes; Andrew Pleavin as Daxos; and Rodrigo Santoro in the role of the Persian God-King Xerxes. The main cast also includes Hans Matheson as Themistokles’ closest friend and advisor, Aeskylos; Callan Mulvey and Jack O’Connell as father and son soldiers, Scyllias and Calisto; and Igal Naor as the Persian King Darius.
