The cast includes Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham and Rodrigo Santoro amongst others. While 300 was a grand reimagining of an actual historical event where 300 Spartans fought against the Persian army, the sequel showcases Rodrigo Santoro as Xerxes who sets out to stake control of Greece with the help of the Persian army and Sullivan Stapleton as Themistocles is forced to ally with the Spartans to save Athens from the impending doom.
