Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green, Sullivan Stapleton participated in a press conference for “300 : Rise of an Empire” at Comic-Con; while you’ll have read my highlights package already, here’s the full chat with the director and stars.

The first “300″ had such a distinct visual style. How much did you want to honor that style and in what ways did you want to do something new?

Noam Murro: I think that the idea was very much like Zack had Frank Miller in the back of his head when he did 300. This was very similar in that way in that I had 300 as a point of reference and the idea was always to take the DNA of that movie and being able to look back at it and use it as a reference and build upon it. There is enough 300 DNA in Rise of an Empire, but there is a lot of new stuff in it. That was the goal and the challenge. How do you keep enough of it and still create something very new.

For the cast, how did you first come onto the project and what kind of love and affection did you have for the Frank Miller novel and Zack Snyder’s movie?

Rodrigo Santoro: It was an honor to be asked to make another film such as that because we have all seen the first one. I loved it. I auditioned like everyone else, I think. Luckily enough, I got the gig. It’s an epic film.

Eva Green: For me, it’s my first action film so that was really cool. I’ve done serious films before when it was all pretty much in my head, so it was a challenge to be violent, cut people in half, and kill lots of people. It was lots of fun.

Sullivan Stapleton: Well, for me, they thought that I looked like the guy that played in the first one. Just kidding. I was part of the first one, and when I heard that they were doing a second one, I was very excited. Actually, in this one, there’s a little bit of the Xerxes backstory, so it was real cool to try to bring some humanity to this character, and I was really excited about it.

Eva Green of 300: Rise of an Empire was part of a star-studded showing at Comic Con in San Diego. On July 20, the French actress and her co-stars Rodrigo Santoro and Sullivan Stapleton attended a panel for the Noam Murro film.

Eva attended the 300: Rise of an Empire panel in one of her favorite labels, Alexander McQueen. Eva’s short-sleeved, blue dress with its u-neckline and below-the-knee hem felt a little lackluster, especially with Eva’s long, fringed hairstyle which weighed her down. Thankfully, the Cracks star paired her borderline business attire dress with sparkling, black, cut-out heels. The dress’ gorgeous blue hue also saved Eva’s Comic Con style from being a complete miss.

A day earlier, at the Superman 75 party, another Alexander McQueen dress yielded a different result for Eva Green. The Dreamers actress looked fantastic in the British label’s cap-sleeved jacquard sheath with beautifully dark lace details. The blue dress fit Eva perfectly, and her loose updo was something different. The same pair of sparkling heels completed Ms. Green’s look.

The wait for a sequel to director Zack Snyder’s 300 has been lengthy, but the follow-up 300: Rise of an Empire finally hits theaters next year. Director Noam Murro takes the helm this time around, as the pic takes place both before and during the events of 300, centering on the naval battles between Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) and Artemisia (Eva Green). During the film’s Hall H panel at Comic-Con today, Murro took the stage with Stapleton, Green, and Rodrigo Santoro (Xerxes) to show off some footage from the pic that actually turned out to be quite promising, not to mention intense. The panelists also talked about the flashback elements of the film and revealing Xerxes’ backstory, Artemisia’s drive for vengeance, shooting the naval battles, differentiating the film from 300, and more.

Hit the jump for my full recap of the Comic-Con panel for 300: Rise of an Empire.

How Xerxes became a god and other stories…

Written by Helen O’Hara

The new footage of 300: Rise Of An Empire shown at Comic-Con today revealed a little about this wider story – both prequel, sequel and side-quel to 300 – in the film. Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green, Sullivan Stapleton, and director Noam Murro were on hand to talk about the footage.

The footage showed that previous Persian king Darius was killed by an arrow fired by Athenian Greek commander Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton), leaving his son Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) to become King. The grief-stricken young man is taken under the wing of Persian naval commander Artemisia (Eva Green), who persuades the young ruler to court dark powers and make himself a god by making a deal with dark powers.

When he returns from the desert, he has had his humanity burned away and is ready to go to war – but the implication here is that Artemisia is the real puppet-master. We also see Lena Headey’s Queen Gorgo, grief-stricken but meeting with Themistokles to prepare a response to the Persian threat, and lots of battle scenes that reflect the original’s speed-ramping and sand-coloured aesthetic. The main difference is that the Athenians here wear blue cloaks rather than Spartan crimson.

“If you took 300 and you zoomed up, you get this movie,” said Murro. “It takes place about the same time; it’s just bigger and just gives a different scale and scope to what happened historically.”

“It was very exciting to return,” said Santoro. “We get a little more about his backstory, so there’s new stuff. I had to work out a lot – no carbs, no chocolate, no fun. But the most interesting thing is his personality. He titled himself a god-king, so we had to give him that look, but I’m much more interested in what he’s going through.”

“She’s the toughest character I’ve ever played,” says Green. “She’s so ballsy, brave, independent, fearless, ruthless. I call her a ruthless Joan Of Arc. It’s kind of a gift for an actor. She’s a Greek warrior woman raised by the King of the Persians, Darius, and he made her the commander of the Persian navy. It’s complicated, because when the king dies he makes his son swear that he will end the war against the Greeks, but she’s thirsty for vengeance against the Greeks because as a child mutinous Greeks killed her family, so she makes him go against the King’s wishes. It’s so cool to play strong, crazy women onscreen and then go back home and be a nerd and listen to classical music.”

“Themistokles is a Greek general who tries to unite all the Greeks,” says Stapleton. “He’s very strong, driven; a tenacious man who wears a denim skirt.”

300: Rise Of An Empire near-finished according to Murro, and hits cinemas in March next year.

300: Rise of an Empire‘ was among the many offerings from Legendary Pictures’ Comic-Con 2013 panel presentations on Saturday, Jul. 20 in Hall H. Based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel ‘Xerxes,’ the prequel to ’300′ was originally slated to hit theaters this August but was later moved to March 7, 2014, naturally increasing its level of mystery.

300: Rise of an Empire’ takes the action to a fresh battlefield — on the sea — as Greek general Themistokles pitted against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy. The film is directed by Noam Murro, stars Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, Rodrigo Santoro, and is set for release on March 7, 2014.

The panel debuted a new, extended trailer for ‘300: Rise of an Empire,’ featuring an extended look at the story that drives the film.

“If you took 300 and you zoomed out, I think this movie is all about,” said Murro. “It gives you a whole new scale and scope to what happened historically.”

“She’s the toughest character I’ve ever played, its always been a fantasy to play a woman with swords … she’s ballsy. I call her a ruthless Joan of Arc,” said Evan Green on her character Artemisia. “She’s a Greek warrior woman raised by the king of the Persian empire. And he made her the commander of the Persian navy.” When the king dies, he makes his son swear to end the war with the Greeks, but Artemisia is so driven for revenge. “She’ll throw herself head first into battle.”

The same could be said for Sullivan Stapleton, who was excited to act with all the weapons. “I’m a guy,” he says, “I get to play with swords.”

Rodrigo is essentially shirtless and hairless the entire time, which meant no carbs, no sweets for Rodrigo. “We had to have that god look,” he said. “I’m more interested in his personality … He had his reasons for doing what he was doing … You’re going to get to understand where he was coming from.”

Effects-wise, there’s so much green screen that Murro, upon coming home after shooting, took out all green from his wardrobe, as he was so sick of seeing the color. But the rig and parts of the boats were among the massive sets actually used in the film. But, as Murro says, they were all surrounded by green. During certain scenes, Eva Green had to look at a giant stick when filming scenes with Rodrigo, who in turn, had to act opposite a tennis ball.

“There are very distinct few battles in the movie an they have their own distinct look and style … from a naval point of view how do you imagine it and solve it.”

“We’re almost done with this,” said Murro, “but there’s still some more work.”
