BOX OFFICE: 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE Conquers Competition At Home And Overseas

Many had assumed that Noam Murro's 300: Rise of an Empire would be both a critical and commercial flop, and while the reaction has been admittedly mixed, the sequel to the Zack Snyder helmed original has dominated both the North American and worldwide box offices this weekend.









So, it looks like 300: Rise of an Empire will be a commercial hit, but with a 43% score on Rotten Tomatoes (where it's described as an "empty exercise in stylish gore" and a "step down from its predecessor"), it doesn't seem unfair to say that this isn't exactly a slam dunk for Warner Bros.! What did you think of the movie? Let us know in the comment section below.






After its victory over Leonidas' 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes' army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land.


STARRING:

Sullivan Stapleton as Themistocles
Eva Green as Artemisia
Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo of Sparta
Rodrigo Santoro as King Xerxes
Hans Matheson as Aeskylos
Andrew Pleavin as Daxos
Callan Mulvey as Scyllias
