The Art of 300 (2)

The sequel to Zack Snyder’s ‘300’ hits UK cinemas March 7th and we have to admit we’re rather excited about it. Noam Murro takes on the helm as Director of the second movie this time titled 300: Rise of an Empire with a cast that includes Eva Green, Rodrigo Santoro, Sullivan Stapleton, Callan Mulvey, Jack O’Connell and Ashraf Barhom and if the trailers are anything to go by, it’s looking fantastic.

300 was not only made famous for the epic fight sequences, shouting THIS IS SPARTAAAAAA and Gerard Butler but because of the beautiful way in which it was shot. Using green-screen and filling in later in a comic-book style has since been copied but it’s nice to see one of the forerunners in the new technology coming back for a second film. The Art of 300: Rise of an Empire is being released by Titan Publishing and we’ve been given some exclusive photos to share with you from the book.
