Man of Steel and 300 director Zack Snyder produces this epic follow-up film that tells a parallel story of a raging battle at sea between Greek general Themistokles (Stapleton) and the massive invading Persian naval forces led by god-king Xerxes (played by the returning Rodrigo Santoro) and his vengeful commander, Artemisia (played by Eva Green).
