First Image of Eva Green As The Villainess in ‘300: Rise Of An Empire’

hollywood-movie-newsToday we are treated to the first image of Eva Green (Casino Royale), who plays Artemisia a commander in Xerxes army in the 300 prequel. Green will be joining the only two other actors from the first movie, Rodrigo Santoro and Lena Headey. There hasn’t been a lot of info or images available for this movie so far, which seems a bit odd since it opens in a few months. I’m sure a trailer will be popping up soon enough though. You can also find out some more information on the upcoming movie in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. 300: Rise Of An Empire arrives in theaters on August 2nd, 2013.

“But it’s Eva Green as Artemisia, the only female commander in Xerxes’ navy, who takes center stage this time. “She’s kind of a Lady Macbeth/Cleopatra character,” says Green. “She’s obsessed by vengeance and wants to go to war with the Greeks.” Midbattle, she meets Athenian general Themistokles (Strike Back star Sullivan Stapleton). “He’s my archenemy, but there’s a very strong attraction,” says Green. “If they’d been in another kind of situation, it might have been a romantic story.”
