The Kidd here...
I can just see the discussion in a Warner Bros. marketing meeting right now...
"People aren't going to know what the hell an Artemisia is..."
"It's a place."
"Will we have to explain it to them? You know they're easily confused."
And, as a result, the follow-up to 300, originally titled THE BATTLE OF ARTEMISIA, has now been renamed 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE, which sounds a bit generic. Oh well... at least it's not 300 2. They gave us that much credit.
300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE is set to land in theatres on August 2, 2013.
