300: Rise of an Empire is a 2014 American action film, written and produced by Zack Snyder and directed by Noam Murro. This is a sequel to the 300 (2007), based on the Battle of Artemisium and the Battle of Salamis with a dramatic change in historical truth.
Set before, during, and after the events of the previous movie, which can be said to take place in parallel, when King Leonidas led 300 warriors against Persia, there was another army fighting Persia. On the sea. It was the army of the Greek general Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton), who wanted to unify all Greece in a new democracy. But the people of Spartans objected to his ideas, and he had to fight the mighty Persian navy. The Persian navy is commanded by the warrior Artemisia (Eva Green) and King Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro). The heroic sacrificial bravery of the 300 warriors of the Spartans brought the entire Greek forces together to fight. Unfortunately, Themistocles and Artemisia have some personal hostile histories together, which complicates things. In addition to this story of the war at sea, the movie will also tap into Artemisia and Xerxes' feud over Greece.
