300: Rise of an Empire, A 300 Spin-Off Based on Frank Miller’s ‘Xerxes’

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire. Directed by Noam Murro, 300: Rise of an Empire is based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes, which covers events that take place before, during, and after the 2006 film 300. The film is scheduled to release in the United States in March, 2014.

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 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, and Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
