We would like to point out that the banner for the film doesn’t list the film’s supposed release date (August 2) but instead opts for a generic “2013.” Rumors began circulating yesterday that the release date for the film has been changed and given that it already shared the weekend with RED 2 and the Denzel Washington film 2 Guns, a move does make sense. We’ll let you know if a change in the official release date is announced.
The movie, a follow-up to Zack Snyder’s 300 (in turn based on Frank Miller’s 1998 comic book miniseries), is expected to tell, in part, the story of Greek General Themistocles, who lead Athens against Persian invaders in a battle that played out simultaneously with the Battle of Thermopylae (depicted in the first film).
Rodrigo Santoro returns as Xerxes in the film with Sullivan Stapleton as General Themistocles and Eva Green as Artemisia (the film’s original namesake). The Noam Murro films also stars Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, Igal Naor, Callan Mulvey, Jack O’Connell and Andrew Tiernan and is set to be released in 2D, 3D, and IMAX.
