Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted the fourth (of six) Comic-Con posters for the upcoming 300: Rise of an Empire. The latest features Rodrigo Santoro as Xerxes and you can check it out below!
Based on Frank Miller's upcoming 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 (Sullivan Stapleton) 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 (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemesia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
Directed by Noam Murro and written by Zack Snyder and Kurt Johnstad, the March 7, 2014 release also stars Hans Matheson, David Wenham, Igal Naor, Callan Mulvey, Jack O'Connell and Andrew Tiernan.
