It’s 2007, and 300 still isn’t out, and frankly we’re getting antsy. But to tide us over as we wait for this epic tale of abs and biceps – er, Greeks and Persians – we’ve found some spiffy new one-sheet posters for the film, exclusively for you on Empire.
Feast your eyes on three of the main characters – Gerard Butler’s Leonidas, King of the Spartans, who launches a desperate effort to stop an army of 250,000 with a force of 300; Rodrigo Santoro’s chain-attired Xerxes, the Persian Emperor; and Lena Headey’s feisty and firey Queen Gorgo, Leonidas’ wife and herself part of the war effort. And as if that weren’t enough, you also get a glimpse of one of the film’s crazy Persian warriors, the gigantic chained “über-Immortal”, the scariest member of Xerxes’ personal guard, the 10,000 Immortals.
The film’s out on March 30, and also stars David Wenhan and Dominic West, with Zach “I remade Dawn of the Dead and they didn’t lynch me” Snyder directing, so we’ll just have to wait for our fix of blood, guts and pecs until then. Sigh. 84 days to go – the countdown starts here.
