With King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) dead and beheaded and Zack Snyder hard at work on his follow-up to Man of Steel, the task of shepherding the latest slo-mo Greek battle fest falls to Noam Murro, a relative newcomer to the game (his only other feature credit is Smart People, a 2008 indie dramedy starring Dennis Quaid, Thomas Haden Church, Sarah Jessica Parker and Ellen Page), but who doesn’t want to see more large-scale murder and mayhem from man-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and new arrival Artemisia (Eva Green)?
