Battle of Artemisia - The Sequel to 300

300 Sequel... Battle of Artemisia

The 2007 movie version of Frank Millers graphic novel “300” has grossed almost half a billion dollars worldwide. Little wonder then that a sequel to this epic film will soon come to a theater near you.

300 was the telling of the historic Battle of Thermopylae, where a small Spartan-led army of Greeks, led by King Leonidas, held off the advance of the invading million man army of Persia under the leadership Xerxes.

Rumor is that the sequel to 300 will be based on the Battle of Marathon (490 BC), which actually took place during Persia’s first invasion of Greece (under the leadership of Persia’s King Darius, who was the father of Xerxes), 10 years before the Battle of Thermopylae. At the small town of Marathon, the Greeks, primarily consisting of troops from Athens, held off the Persian army for five days, and then attacked at destroyed their opponents despite being vastly outnumbered.

The exact release date to the 300 sequel (perhaps better termed prequel) has not been determined yet, but it is supposed to be sometime in 2011. While the exact plot and storyline is a secret, no doubt that it will be full of the action and gore that made 300 such a blockbuster.

I'll watch it. Probably buy it too. I love this kind of stuff. (Unless it sucks, which sometimes it does... I guess usually it does... but, never know when the next Gladiator, Braveheart, 13th Warrior, or Last of the Mohicans is going to come out, so you have to watch them all.) Which I love doing. :)

THanks for the heads up.

I'll go see it, but I'll probably be with a bunch of folks who won't stop talking about how this or that detail is incorrect. Watching historical movies is quite the experience with my group of friends...:-)

I loved the first one, but did find it quite gory in places. But then, that's what war is, so I'll let that thought go...

I had no idea another one was coming out, so I'm glad for the info!

Will this one also be based on a Frank Miller graphic novel or something that Hollywood writers have to come up on their own?

This movie is an obvious money grab, and also a way to tick off the Iranian government because it makes their ancestors look like cowards at a time when they're trying to look strong on the world scene with their nuclear weapon program. I'll see it!

You posted this hub more than a year ago, but I still don't know about Xerxes. Was it just a rumor or it is really being made.
