Lena Headey looked edgy as she arrived wearing a low back dress and baring her tattoos to photographers and fans.

The 40-year-old actress was joined on the red carpet by co-stars Eva Green, Callan Mulvey and Jack O'Connell. Headey will reprise the role of Queen Gorgo of Sparta from the first film while new face, and former Bond girl, Eva Green will be joining the franchise as a Persian naval commander, Artemisia.

The Noam Murro directed action movie (taking over from Zack Snyder) is the long-awaited sequel to 2007's box office hit '300,' and sees Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) lead a battle at sea to defeat the Persian navy after the demise of the Spartan land army.

Celebrity guests included Miguel Ferrer, Tito Ortiz, McKenzie Westmore, Gene and Nick Simmons among others.

About the Film:

“300: Rise of an Empire,” told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” is a new chapter of the epic saga, which takes the action to a new battlefield—the sea. The story pits the Greek general Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces, ruled by the mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and led by Artemisia, the vengeful commander of the Persian navy. Knowing his only hope of defeating the overwhelming Persian armada is to unite all of Greece, Themistokles leads the charge that will change the course of the war. The action adventure stars Sullivan Stapleton as Themistokles and Eva Green as Artemisia. Reprising their roles from “300,” Lena Headey stars as the Spartan Queen, Gorgo; David Wenham appears as Dilios; Andrew Tiernan plays Ephialtes; Andrew Pleavin plays Daxos; and Rodrigo Santoro returns in the role of the Persian God-King, Xerxes. The film is based on the graphic novel Xerxes, by Frank Miller. "300: Rise of an Empire" will open on March 7, 2014.
