Take A Look At The Art Of “300: Rise Of An Empire”

Madness? This! Is! Artwork!

The follow-up to everyone’s favorite movie about men in loincloths fighting mutant battle-rhinos, 300, hits theaters on March 7. But if you can’t wait that long for 300: Rise Of An Empire, you can get your hands on its companion book, 300: Rise Of An Empire: The Art Of The Film, which has just been released today. There’s even a limited-edition version for hardcore fans, signed by director Noam Murro and producer Zack Snyder. And just to remind you what we’re in for with this sequel, check this out:

The book takes a look behind the scenes of the movie, sharing production stills, on-set photos, set designs, and more. It’s also a weighty, hardcover book, which means that if you pick it up and put it down again enough times, you might end up with a physique roughly resembling that of King Leonidas himself, and that’s surely enough of a reason to do anything (except, you know, actually eat and exercise properly. Because that ismadness). Check out a few excerpts from the book below!
