300: Rise Of An Em­pire

This is not Sparta. OK, fine, there are bits and pieces of Sparta in this movie, with some of Athens and other parts of Greece as well. But what you should know is 300: Rise Of An Em­pire is not ex­actly a se­quel to 300, but rather, about the rise of Xerxes to the Per­sian throne, and his in­va­sion of Greece. The hero this time is states­man-turned-sol­dier Themis­to­cles, who at­tempts to unite all of Greece against Xerxes and his naval com­man­der, the se­duc­tive, vin­dic­tive and am­bi­tious Artemisia.
