300: Rise of an Empire

Now Playing Synopsis: Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) assembles his troops to fend off an invading Persian army led by the immortal Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and the vindictive Persian navy commander Artemisia (Eva Green) in this sequel to 300 based on the graphic novel Xerses by Frank Miller. In the wake of the Persians' victory over King Leonidas and his 300 Spartans, the God King Xerxes (Santoro) appears poised to conquer Greece. As the ruthless Artemisia (Eva Green) assembles a massive fleet of ships and sets sail for conquest, Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) strives to rally his countrymen to fight for freedom, and he manages to gain the upper hand over the invaders by confronting them at sea. Meanwhile, Leonidas' former advisor and wife Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey) is reluctant to sacrifice any more Spartans in a fight that appears to be unwinnable. When the Greeks enjoy an early victory over Artemisia and her soldiers, however, it appears that Themistokles' unconventional tactics are more effective than the Persian Empire's formidable brawn. But later, after Artemisia's attempt to seduce Themistokles to her side proves unsuccessful, the spurned naval commander deals a devastating blow to her Greek opponents. In the aftermath of that skirmish, Themistokles is presumed dead and Athens falls. The Persian Empire seems on the verge of victory, though when Xerxes and Artemisia learn that Themistokles lives, they realize the fight won't be over until he takes his final breath. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Rodrigo Santoro, David Wenham, Andrew Tiernan, Andrew Pleavin, Hans Matheson, Callan Mulvey, Jack O'Connell, Igal Naor Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Ben is a young boy who loves to color; little does he realize his beloved crayons lead a secret life of excitement and adventure. Every night, when the sun goes down, Ben's crayons pay a visit to Color City, a whimsical world of breathtaking beauty. Trouble arises, however, when Ben falls asleep one night, and Yellow is left behind by her fellow crayons. In her attempt to catch up with them, Yellow accidentally stirs an unfinished sketch of the monstrous King Scrawl and his malevolent henchman Gnat. Before they can be stopped, the diabolical duo have made their way to Color City, and staked their claim on the magical Rainbow Waterfall. Now, if Yellow and her friends don't act fast, all of Color City's glorious hues will soon fade. Fortunately for the citizens of this enchanted land, courageous Yellow is about to learn that if she believes in herself, anything is possible -- even defeating a formidable foe like the dreaded King Scrawl. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi Cast: Christina Ricci, Rosie Perez, Craig Ferguson, Wayne Brady, Arsenio Hall Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
