The sequel to Zack Snyder's adaptation of Frank Miller's epic sets sail for Blu-ray in June!
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is readying '300: Rise of an Empire' Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack and '300: Rise of an Empire - 3D' Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack for June 5.
Rise of an Empire takes the action to a fresh battlefield -- the sea -- as Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. Themistokles must face the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and Artemisia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
The releases will feature 1080p video, DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtracks, and supplements will include: 3 Days in Hell; Taking the Battle to the Sea; Real Leaders & Legends; Women Warriors; Becoming a Warrior; and more...
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is set at $35.99 and the Blu-ray 3D is $44.95.
