Based on Frank Miller's graphic novel "Xerxes" and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster 300, this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. 300: Rise of an Empire pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemesia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.

While it couldn't dislodge Katniss in its debut week, Frozen came from behind to claim #1 in week two. Disney's winter-themed CG-animated film took the top spot at the box office this weekend with $31.6 million, a 53% fall from last week. While that would normally be considered a high drop for an animated film, the high opening weekend gross puts it at about average and comparable to 2010's Tangled. The film has now grossed $134.3 million domestically and $190.2 million worldwide off a budget of $150 million.
Coming in at #2 in its third weekend was The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which grossed $27 million. The franchise sequel has now grossed $336.7 million domestically and $673.6 million worldwide on a budget of $130 million. It is the third-highest grossing film of the year domestically already and fifth-highest of the year worldwide.
It's a long drop from there, as Out of the Furnace opened disappointingly at #3 with just $5.3 million. The Christian Bale-starring revenge tale averaged just $2,523 from the 2,101 theaters in which it opened, below even $10 million the studio was hoping for. Middling reviews and a bad C+ CinemaScore means that it will likely fade quickly. The film's budget was $22 million.
Thor: The Dark World fell one spot to #4 in its fifth week with $4.7 million. The Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel has now grossed $193.6 million domestically and $610.3 million worldwide. The film had a budget of $170 million.
Vince Vaughn's Delivery Man had a relatively good weekend, rising a spot to #5 with $3.8 million. The dramedy has made $24.8 million domestically and $26 million worldwide on a $26 million budget.
Jason Statham's Homefront fell one spot to #6 in its second week with $3.4 million. The film had an average second-weekend drop of 51% and has now grossed a total of $15.3 million. It had a budget of $22 million.
The Book Thief held even at #7 in its second week of expansion, adding 82 theaters (to 1,316 total) and grossing $2.7 million. The World War 2-themed drama has now grossed $12.1 million.
The Best Man Holiday fell four spots to #8 in its fourth weekend with $2.7 million. The ensemble comedy has now grossed $67.2 million domestically and $67.6 million worldwide, with a budget of $17 million.
Philomena fell one spot to #9 in its third week with $2.3 million. The British drama, which stars Steve Coogan and Judi Dench, has grossed $8.3 million domestically and $24.4 million worldwide to date; the budget isn't known.
Coming in at #10 (and up two from last week) was Dallas Buyers Club. The fact-based drama took in $1.5 million in its sixth week of limited release, bringing its total to $12.4 million from a $5 million budget.
The weekend box office tally was $94.4 million, up 17% from last year's take of $80.9 million that was led by Skyfall's fifth weekend of $10.8 million.
Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.
