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.
I really enjoyed the first one, so I'll probably go see this one, just because. And I have a thing for Eva Green ever since Casino Royale, so there's that. No Leonidas, naturally, but I guess there are plenty of other bearded brawlers who can step up and take his place. Lots of special effects, but that's to be expected.
This comes out next March ... who will be in line to see it?
