“The Greek general Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton) battles an invading army of Persians under the mortal-turned-god, Xerxes.”

A few words from Director Noam Murro about Themistocles, the lead character of the film:

“Themistokles is battle-scarred and a warrior, but at the same time he’s a politician. He’s not the king. He has to rule in a democracy. It’s a different complexity of character.”

Director Noam Murro

The film will hit theaters on August 2, 2013.
