Follow up to Zack Snyder's 300, taking place before, during and after the events of that 2007 original. The action heads to the seas and the Battle of Artemisium, in which Greek ships commanded by general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) take on the might of invading Persian forces, led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and Artemisia (Eva Green).

Matthew Perry and Bruce Willis must've been stoked when this film was announced, because it immediately displaced The Whole Ten Yards as Hollywood's least-demanded sequel ever. Not helping the argument for 300: Rise of an Empire's existence is how influential the original has been, with the current marketplace seeing no shortage of imitators and retreads - Immortals; Clash/Wrath of the Titans; both upcoming Hercules movies; Noah. And with slow-mo fetishist Zack Snyder ceding the director's chair to Noam Murro, whose only previous movie was the low-key family dramedy Smart People, all signs did not point to awesome.
